Cilantro Lime Black Bean Rice

Brown Rice
2 tsp of Olive Oil
Pinch of Sea Salt
1 can black beans, undrained
pinch cayenne
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 crushed garlic clove
3 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan (follow the directions from the rice package). Add olive oil, rice, and salt. Stir just to make sure the grains are separate, then cover and simmer over low heat for about 45 minutes. While the rice cooks, go find a clean dish towel or a couple paper towels; when the timer goes off for the rice, remove the rice from the heat, remove the lid, place the towel(s) over the pan, and replace the lid. This will catch some of the steam and keep the rice from getting gummy. Let the rice sit for about 10 minutes.
