If there were ever a dish, let alone a side dish, that inspired me to write poetry about it, this would be it. I literally stood in my kitchen and ate so much of it I was worried I wouldn't have any left to photograph.
"Holy mother of carbs,"
*takes another bite*
"But...but it was so easy to make,"
*shovels more into my face*
"I'm in love."
Calling it a side dish feels wrong, because I'll give these rice and beans my whole heart and make it my main dish ANY DAY AND EVERY DAY. Find out for yourselves, I double-dog-dare you.
1 cup cooked rice (Jasmine used in photo)
1 cup black beans
1-2 tablespoons Sweet Viking™ Relish
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1. Dump everything in a bowl (or in the pot you made your rice in, if you didn't microwave--this is a judgment free zone.)
2. Mix, mix, mix.
4. Write a poem about your experience and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org because there *may be a coupon code in it for you.
