Happy Meatless Monday! It’s the last one of 2013, so I hope you’re enjoying it! This is the perfect time to think about going meatless on Mondays for 2014. It does so much good for your body, the animals, and our planet. I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer this close to NYE, so we’ll talk about it later, but going meatless for just one day a week would be a huge step in the right direction for our world.
In any case, I want to leave you with a really simple recipe. It can be a side dish or it can be added to tacos or burritos, but we eat it as a meal in a huge bowl. Haha! It’s easy, inexpensive, and delicious. YUM.
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. Happy eating!
- 2 cups cooked white rice, steamed
- 1-2 avocados, ripe, pitted, out of skin
- Lemon juice (just a squeeze)
- Garlic powder to taste
- Mixed veggies
- Cashew sour cream
- Coconut aminos/tamari
After you've steamed your rice, mash avocados into rice (or cut avocados into small chunks and mix into rice).
Add a squeeze of lemon juice to the avocado rice.
Sprinkle garlic powder on to taste.
Mix well and enjoy. Add optional toppings or add-ins if you'd like too!
*Optional extras: Add a splash of coconut aminos and/or some lightly steamed peas and corn.
