Vigo Black Beans and Rice
Vigo Black Beans & Rice
I’ve been eating this dish for years, so I was happy to find out that it is gluten free. There is no gluten free claim on the label but I found a list of Vigo products that are gluten free at Celiac.com here. This is an old post so I’ve contacted Vigo myself and created a PDF of Vigo gluten free products here.
I’ve made this a lunch time staple for years, but I’m going to have a hard time reviewing it because I’ve been loading it up with chicken, salsa, and quinoa for so long. Here’s my recipe.
The good and the bad
This rice dish is high in fiber and low in fat and cholesterol, but high in sodium. The rice is vitamins enriched.
It’s good, but how do you make it more gooderWhat do you mean gooder is not a word? Have you never heard of a do gooder? Someone who steps into a bad situation and makes it gooder?
The package suggests topping this dish with olive oil, vinegar and chopped onions. I haven’t tried that but a spoonful of green salsa is delicious.
How about some other suggestions thanks to facebook
- Oil and vinegar with thinly sliced red onion and feta cheese.
- Andouille sausage.
- Layering with taco seasoned turkey, sour cream, cheddar cheese and served with corn chips.
