This complete meal in a bowl requires very little cooking and has a lot of textures and flavors. Use any beans, grains, or vegetables you like—it will all come together wonderfully with our Cilantro-Cashew Dressing.
1. In a medium saucepan combine beans and ½ cup water. Cook over medium heat just until heated through, stirring occasionally.
2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan cook frozen vegetables in a small amount of boiling water 5 minutes or just until tender; drain.
3. Divide spinach among soup or salad bowls. Add beans, vegetables, and rice. Top with tomatoes and green onions, and drizzle with Cilantro-Cashew Dressing. Sprinkle fresh cilantro over the top. Serve warm.
