staples and spice day 2: mexican.

Spices: Chili powder, cumin, onion powder, oregano, paprika

Staples: Kidney beans, brown rice

Chili Powder

Today's south-of-the-border inspiration requires just four spices and two staples. This healthy take on the classic rice-and-beans is not only easy to throw together, but also a great example of the benefits of macrobiotic eating [check out how grains and legumes pack a powerful punch of energy!]

And now, the how-to:

1. Combine cooked kidney beans and all spices.

2. Warm up the rice with a little oil or water, plate, and top with beans.Oregano

That's it! Really!

This easy combo is great fuel in the middle of a workday or a nourishing, refueling dinner. Feel free to top with cilantro, chives, or salsa and a vegan sour cream for extra flavor and color.
