Sides for the Jamaican Jerk Seasoned Burgers

These are such simple dishes that, with a little bit of love and attention, can be an integral part of your meal. 

Yellow Rice with Coriander
1 large package of yellow rice mix, cooked according to package directions.  Mix in 1/2 t. ground coriander and place in serving bowl or on platter  Top with a few pats of butter and a 1 t. lime zest.

Citrus Cole Slaw 
2 cups shredded cabbage
1/4 cup chopped red onion
Pinch of fresh thyme
1/4 t. ground coriander
3 T. mayonnaise
2 T. orange juice
1 t. orange or lime zest
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, gently mix all ingredients.

Black Beans with Cumin
You can either use canned black beans (rinsed and drained) or cook dried black beans for a few hours in beef stock.  

If using canned, put in a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add 1 t. minced garlic, 1 t. ground cumin.  Top with lime zest before serving.

If using dried beans, soak for a few hours or overnight in cold water.  Drain and place in a medium or large saucepan and add enough beef stock to cover.  Add 1 t. minced garlic and 1 t. ground cumin.  Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until beans are soft and cooked through.  Add salt to taste.  Top with lime zest before serving.
