One of this weeks recipes from The Splendid Table's Weeknight Kitchen newsletter was Peasant Bowls. This was a bowl layered with black beans, rice, spices, Monterey Jack cheese, tomatoes, and green onions. I've had other layered bowls similar to this, but the small amount of cheese in this one really set this one apart. The flavors were excellent, and it was a filling and healthy supper. This would be great packed up for lunch. I forget how delicious a simple bowl of rice and beans can be when it is properly seasoned.
