Directions

Click:

  1. In a medium pot on high heat, bring the brown rice, bouillon cube, and water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and partially cover with a lid, cooking until the rice is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover with a lid, and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large pot on high heat, add the oil and sauté the onions until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to de-glaze the pot and prevent burning.
  3. Then add the garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add the spice mix and mushrooms, decrease the heat to medium-high and sauté until all the water released from the mushrooms completely evaporates, about 8 minutes.
  5. Then add the tomatoes, soy veggie ground, bell peppers, and corn and cook for 5 - 10 more minutes.
  6. To prepare the guacamole, simply add all the ingredients to a small food processor and blend until smooth.
  7. To serve, add the rice to a bowl, top with spinach, the mushroom mixture, and guacamole. Garnish if desired and enjoy!

Notes

  • * If unable to soak ahead of time, increase water and cooking time.

Another one of my favourites that really helped me through my life as a student. I make this once a month and it is always so filling and nourishing. The leftovers work really great as a Mexican sandwich. Spread the guacamole on whole wheat bread, add in the burrito leftovers and toast the sandwich. I would then add spinach leaves to the sandwich. OOOOooo! It was so wonderful.

Love all of the ideas, Rincy, and so glad you're enjoying the guacamole! Wishing you an abundance of success with your studies 😃

I've made this several times and always make multiple batches of the guacamole because it's so good. Instead of spinach, I also like using collard greens! Thanks for the great recipe!

A lovely sub, Kathryn, thanks for sharing!

One of my favorites. Wish I could attach my bowls pic here. Spicy, flavorful and full of protein. And I love this quick Guacamole sauce, it takes the meal to a different level.
