A healthy dish that consists of rice and beans
  • Instructions.
  • Ingredients.
    • First cook the rice as per packet instructions. Once cooked al dente, drain and rinse under cold water, setting aside to cool.
    • Next, peel and chop and the garlic and onions. Put a large frying pan on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, fry the garlic and onions for 1 minute and then stir in the beans.
    • Tip: If using fresh pinto beans, cook the day before and leave in the fridge to cool overnight.
    • Cook for 5 minutes until the beans start to crisp. Add some fresh coriander and squeeze in a bit of lime juice. Stir the rice gently into the beans and fry for another 5 minutes.
    • Grab a bowl and whisk the eggs – seasoning with salt and pepper. Get a non-stick frying pan and stir the eggs over low-medium heat, until they’re scrambled and creamy.
    • Serve the rice topped with scrambled eggs, slices of avocado and the remaining lime, cut in half.
