Vegan Rice Bowls–Yummy!

I’m obsessed right now with vegan rice bowls! These rice bowls are so simple and a great way to eat your greens! Well, yes, I really do like the idea of eating my salad first before eating cooked food, if I’m eating cooked food. But, honestly, it just doesn’t seem to happen. So I was inspired by Chipotle Mexican Grill’s veggie fajita bowl, the only thing I order there since I’m mostly vegan and gluten-intolerant. So here’s my fave rice bowl recipe. It’s quick and easy as long as the rice has been cooked earlier.

– brown rice seasoned with Spike seasoning
– mixed spring greens
– marinated tempeh sauteed in a little EVOO, Bragg’s Amino Acids, and water
– 1/2 avocado
– tomato

That’s basically it! You can add more ingredients if you like. You can add as much rice as you please, just be sure to add enough seasoning if you add a lot of greens. I use a big bowl and just mix it all together. It’s a quick and easy vegan meal that is very satisfying. You don’t need to worry about adding salad dressing either, so it’s a low fat meal. If you want to make it lower in fat, skip the avocado. But for me, this natural fat is a good thing and it really makes it taste even better. Enjoy! Chirp, chirp!
