Directions

  1. In a medium pot, bring the rice, water, and bouillon cube to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer, partially cover with a lid, and cook for 20 minutes*. When the rice is cooked, remove from the heat, cover with a lid, and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large pan on high heat, add the oil and sauté the onions and garlic until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to de-glaze the pot.
  3. Add the mushrooms and spice mix. Decrease the heat to medium-high and sauté until all the water released from the mushrooms completely evaporates, about 8 minutes.
  4. Then add the bell pepper, spinach, tomatoes, veggie ground, corn, and beans and cook for 5 - 10 more minutes.
  5. To make the creamy guacamole, mash the avocado, crush the garlic, and mix the ingredients in a bowl. Alternatively, add all the ingredients to a small food processor and blend until smooth.
  6. For the chipotle yogurt sauce mix the ingredients in a small bowl.
  7. To serve, add the rice to a bowl, the mushroom mixture, guacamole, and yogurt sauce. Garnish as desired and enjoy!

Notes

  • If unable to soak ahead of time, increase water and cooking time.
  • * If unable to soak the rice ahead of time, cook according to the package instructions.

So yummy!

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.
