Fiesta Rice Salad 🥗🍚 smokey + spicy roasted corn, seasoned chickpeas, tomatoes, cilantro, peppers & lemony goodness served over pillowy rice of your choice! Grab the easy recipe deets below👇🏼 INGREDIENTS 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 cups of any rice of your choice 4 cups of water or bone broth (any broth makes it more flavorful! 💯) 1 small onion, finely chopped 2 shallots, finely chopped 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced sea salt to taste🧂 2 cups of halved cherry tomatoes one can of small organic chickpeas OR black beans a handful of chopped organic cilantro 1 cup of finely chopped red or green bell peppers 2 cups of roasted corn (or organic corn) I season mine with paprika, chili powder, cumin, a pinch of Tabasco and garlic powder. About 1/4 tsp each! INSTRUCTIONS In a large saucepan with a lid, heat the extra virgin olive oil & add the shallots and onions. Stir until softened/translucent then add the garlic. Finally, stir in the rice until well coated/mixed with the oil and onions. Add the broth and stir, once it boils: reduce heat to a simmer and cover the saucepan with a lid. Simmer for ~ 20 mins. Turn off the heat and leave covered for at least another 10 mins so it can fluff up. In a separate bowl: mix in all the vegetables. Before serving, top over the rice and mix in. Other option: add the vegetables to the rice before you add the broth and have them cook with the rice if you prefer everything warm/sauteed. Tip: I add a tiny bit of pickled chopped Spanish red onions to the fresh salsa rice topper for a little kick. I pickle them with white wine vinegar and sea salt. I like to use jasmine, brown or black rice for mine- I love the smell and taste!🙃🙌🏼💣 Perfect side to your mains, or even doubles up as a main because it has a ton of plant protein!👊🏻🌱also great inside chicken or steak or veg 🌯 burritos or as the base to your taco rice bowls! ✓Follow @foodliife _ 🙏 ✓By @thedishonhealthy 🖤
