Warm Rice Salad

This is a quick lunch I threw together in just a few minutes. I had leftover black rice so I heated that for a minute then topped it with hummus, salad greens, carrots, snap peas, zucchini strips, and a few pieces of papaya. This was a very satisfying and healthy lunch. I like to have cooked grains or beans in the fridge most of the time, this has been a huge time saver for me time and time again. I also like to have cooked kale on hand, in addition to fresh veggies. Dress with a little olive oil, dried or fresh spices, a little vinegar and you’ve got yourself a meal in no time!
