This method is based on 2 servings
  1. Preheat oven to 355°F and line a baking sheet with baking paper.


  2. Place rice, water and salt in a saucepan and simmer, covered for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.


  3. Whilst rice is cooking, combine beans with oil in a baking dish, mix well to coat. Add spices, season with salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat in spices. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crispy. 


  4. At the same time, scatter bell pepper over baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.


  5. To make the guacamole, combine all ingredients in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and set aside.


  6. Once everything has cooked through, it’s time to build your bowl. Divide rice between bowls, add beans, bell pepper and guacamole. Top with almonds, cilantro sprigs and squeeze over lime to serve.
