This coconut lime rice with cilantro and black beans is the perfect summer side dish that’s ready in 15 minutes with only 5 minutes of prep. Make it a meal with a few yummy additions like jalapenos, radishes, and avocado.
Toss the rice, coconut milk, water, lime zest, coriander and salt in a pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer covered for 10-15 minutes or until cooked.
Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes before adding the black beans – mostly so they don’t stain the rice.
Serve with protein or garnishes of your choice.
