  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice of 1 lime

  • Saute mushrooms and spinach in olive oil. (This is optional if you are serving as a cold salad, but even in salad, I prefer my mushrooms and greens sauteed in this dish)
  • Layer the rice, beans, greens, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and green onions in 1 to 1.5 quart bowl.  (If you are eating this bowl hot, proceed to saute rice, beans, tomatoes and green onions as well)
