Rice and beans 5 stars

The rice and beans 5 stars is a light dish, made thanks to the book Food for the heart written by Macro Editions, reading it I appreciated the variety of healthy recipes based on a plant diet, I customized this recipe used borlotti beans place of black beans, then as far as the spring onion and curly kale are not found in the summer, so I have omitted these ingredients, I have served it with a rich tomato sauce perfect both hot and cold.
