Brown Rice Salad Recipe with Beans-Brown Rice Double Beans Salad

Brown rice salad with double beans is one of my favorite dish with brown rice. It is filling, nutritious and also very tasty. Whenever my husband (he does not like brown rice) is away, this is my lunch. It hardly takes 15 minutes to prepare this. You do not need any side dish for this. It makes a complete meal loaded with vitamins, protein, fiber and antioxidants. Today we will learn how to make brown rice salad with double beans following this easy recipe.

Brown Rice salad with beans

Brown rice Salad with Double Beans

Prep time - under 15 mins
Cook time - under 10 mins
Serves - 1

Ingredients needed

Brown rice cooked - 1 cup
Onion finely chopped - 1/3 cup
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece finely chopped
Garlic - finely chopped - 1 tbsp
Green chilli - 1 finely chopped
Double beans cooked - 1/4 cup
Vegetables - 1/2 cup (mix of carrot, beans and cabbage)
Capsicum - 1/4 cup (mix of all colors)

Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Salt and pepper powder to taste
Lemon juice - 1 tsp


Cook brown rice, fluff it with a fork and let it cool. Check out how to cook brown rice

Chop all the vegetables finely.

Soak double beans in water overnight and pressure cook with a little salt for 3 whistles.


Heat oil in a pan/kadai, add finely chopped onions, garlic and ginger. Saute until onions turn transparent.

Now add all the vegetables except capsicum, saute on high heat for 2-3 minutes stirring continuously.The vegetables should retain its crispiness, so it is enough if you cook for 2-3 minutes on high flame. That is the reason we are chopping the vegetables finely.

Then add capsicum and saute for a few more seconds on high heat.

Reduce the flame, add double beans, cooked rice, salt  and pepper powder to taste. Toss gently and switch off the flame.

Add lemon juice, mix well and serve hot immediately.

Note - You can use leftover brown rice for this recipe.

You can use any bean seed you like instead of double beans.

This is my way of making this salad as I do not like eating the onions raw.
