Step by step:

  1. If you use dry beans, soak them overnight, afterwords discard the water. Cook in salty water until soft. Instruction: bring the beans with water to boil, reduce the heat to medium low, and cook with a lid a bit open until beans are soft. Add salt in half time of cooking, which is around 30 minutes. Mix them from time to time for even cooking.

  5. In a bowl, put a layer of brown rice and top it with kale, refried black beans, fresh tomato, onion, fresh parsley and avocado.
  6. Sprinkle it with a bit of olive oil.
