1 cup vegetable broth
3/4 cup water
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided

15 ounce can black beans, rinse and drained

In a medium saucepan, add broth, water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, stir in rice - cover, reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, about 35-45 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

In a large bowl, toss together remaining salt, juice, oil, pepper and garlic. Add rice and beans - toss well to coat. Let stand 15 minutes or until cool. Stir in corn and cilantro.
