Add the rice to a pot,with the recommended amount of water, and add spices, salt and cooked beans, give a stir, bring to a boil. Cover, turn heat to low and simmer until rice is cooked and water is evaporated, about 45 minutes. ( Some rice takes longer).While rice is cooking, prep veggies
Make the creamy cilantro sauce. Place tofu, cilantro garlic lime juice salt pepper and jalapeno ( optional) into a food processor and process until very smooth, scraping down sides as necessary.
This will make 1 ½ Cups. Use the leftovers as dip for veggies, or a flavorful spread.
When rice is done, assemble bowls. Place a bed of lettuce in a bowl, top with bean rice mix, and arrange veggies over top. Spoon or drizzle creamy cilantro sauce over top. Enjoy!
