Spanish Cristianos Y Moros ( Beans and Rice Sidedish)
15 mins (prep 15)
13 ingredients
6-8 servings
Another variation on the medieval Spanish classic of the black bean and white rice hot dish traditionally known as cristianos y moros. As much a delicious side dish as is the interesting historical significance of the recipe's name. This is from the Beans and Grains cookbook by James McNair. My rule of thumb is to serve warm as a side dish or at room temperature as a salad.
