Recipe Time

Prep: 30 Minutes


1 1/2 cups MAHATMA Brown Rice
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 lime
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves
1 cup loosely packed baby arugula leaves
2 garlic cloves
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 (15 1/2-oz.) cans cannellini beans, drained


Prepare rice according to package directions with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, grate rind from lime into a small bowl. Cut lime in half, and squeeze juice into bowl.

Pulse cilantro, next 3 ingredients, lime rind, and lime juice in a blender until combined. Gradually add olive oil, salt, and pepper, and process just until blended, stopping to scrape down sides.

Microwave cannellini beans in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in hot cooked rice. Add cilantro mixture, and toss to combine. Serve warm.
