Units Scale

For the Spicy Black Beans

For the roasted veggies

  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion sliced

For the guacamole

For the pico de gallo

  • 2 medium tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red or white onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander
  • 1/2 jalapeno or hot chilli finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Cooked rice of choice
  • Chopped lettuce


  1. For the beans, add all the ingredients to a pan over medium heat. Mix well. Add about a tablespoon of water and mix it in. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until the beans are hot. 
  2. Roast the veggies. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Spray oil on the pan and place the veggies on the pan. Cook both sides until most have brown edges or marks.
  3. Make the guacamole. Mash the avocado well, add the rest of the ingredient mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Prepare the pico de gallo. Mix everything, taste and adjust and keep aside.
  5. Assemble the bowl. You can assemble it up to you, I like to have the cooked rice, beans, guacamole, and veggies separately, others like to have them stacked up or mixed up. You can serve immediately before the beans get cold.
  6. If you are not keen on guacamole you could just have sliced avocado on top?
