Easy vegan pot (four ingredients!!)

I can't remember where I found this recipe, or I would give someone credit. We eat it with a salad to make a whole meal (granted, we double - sometimes triple - it).

Cilantro, Lime, Pinto Beans & Rice
(pretty cool when the title of a recipe includes the WHOLE RECIPE!!)

2 cans pinto beans
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
lime to taste

Throw it all in a pot and heat it up.

Seriously, that's it.

Now, you can salt & pepper it, if you want.

This stuff is YUM!

This stuff is EASY!

This stuff is CHEAP (especially if you grow your own cilantro - come on, you can do it!!)

Cilantro is taking over the garden, so this is on my menu.

We love this! Of course, it's not actually complete in my house until you splash on some Tapatio hot sauce! =] Thanks for sharing.

Bugger, the cilantro from my garden died this year. I do however have a plethora of corriander seeds. :)

Can't wait to try your recipe, thanks for sharing!

Kelli said...

I will have to try this one! Sounds great!

Even though we're not actually vegetarians, I am always looking for good vegetarian recipes. I am always trying to convince my family a dish can be healthy and delicious!

Thanks for sharing your recipe. I can't wait to try it!

Um ok. You know I read your blog even though I am not a mom. And maybe I have worked around "artists" for too long, because when I read this headline in my Google Reader, I was thinking, "Why is Christine promoting pot smoking??" And then I thought, "Isn't all "pot" vegetarian? And is a herbal alternative really necessary?"

Then I read it. Pot. CROCK pot. Right... Got it.

yeah - I was thinking the marry-uh-wanna version of pot too :)
The recipe sounds good too though. Reminds me of Cilantro lime rice at Chipotle (maybe just a west coast restaurant???)

This sounds so yummy. We make a similiar dish with brown rice, black beans, corn, and cilantro. But the lime juice . . . must try that.

This sounds delish -- and perfect for the heatwave we've been having!
