Here we are again, another week of meal prep! Seriously, these last few weeks have been so great as far as lunches go. I’ve been on top of my ish! Which is great because being on top of it makes me want to stay on top of it. So here is another yummy, yummy lunch that I made for the week. It’s super easy and the ingredients are super cost effective – saving you time and money! Luckily for me, the items were also on sale at my local grocery store so that’s always a plus too. I actually made this particular lunch set on a Monday morning before work – that’s how easy it is!
For this recipe, as with most of my recipes I share here, all items can be substituted if you don’t care for specific ingredients. Furthermore, all of these items could also be subbed for fresh ingredients as well, I just did cans this time around because they were easier and on sale. This meal is great because it has the protein you need but is still super tasty and keeps me full until dinner. Pair this bowl with some tortilla chips and you have a real winner!
Vegan Fiesta Bowls
White or brown rice (I didn’t have brown rice on hand or I would have used that. You could also use quinoa)
1 can sweet corn, drained
1 can whole black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can rotel, drained
Guacamole (I like using premade guac because it doesn’t brown as fast)
Add rice, corn, beans, rotel and guacamole to your container. Top rice with cilantro and cover all ingredients with fresh squeezed lime juice and salt and pepper. When ready to eat, you can either eat cold or microwave. I like to take the guac out before microwaving and then add back in. Stir everything together and enjoy. It’s that easy!
