Fiesta Rice Bowl (V, GF, Winner Dinner)

1 cup dry Basmati Rice
3/4 cup Refried Beans
1 head of Romaine
1 Yukon Gold Potato
1 orange Capsicum
2 ears Yellow Corn
1 cup of spicy Salsa
1/2 medium Onion
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1/2 cup of Water
1 tbs Turmeric
1 tsp Cayenne
1 tsp Cumin

Soak rice for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, chop your veggies. Make sure the potato is cubed small so it cooks quicker.
In a large non-stick pan, add the potato and a small amount of water. Cover and steam for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add your onions and salsa and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add the rest of your veggies to the pan. Stir and simmer until slightly soft. Add lime juice and remove from heat.
Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add the rice and boil for 6 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
In a small pot add your refried beans, spices, and water to desired consistency. Stir over medium heat for 5 minutes.
In a large serving or salad bowl, chop your romaine. Pour rice on top and fluff. Add your veggies and refried beans. Toss now or mix as you eat (I prefer the latter).
Enjoy :)
