28 Day Challenge.... Day 6

Plant based diet, Vegan, Gluten-free

Keep it simple, Starshine!  Sometimes life is too busy for lots of time to cook.  And sometimes I just need to take it down a notch.  My go to recipe at those moments is rice bowls.

Fire up the rice cooker and make enough brown rice to satisfy you or your crew.  While the brown rice cooks, heat up some black beans mixed with onion chunks, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder.  I like this spice mix for 2 cans of drained black beans.  Chop up tomatoes, thin slice red onion, mince cilantro, pop some sweet roasted frozen corn into the microwave.  
Fill your bowl with fresh spinach or whatever greens you like.  Mix cilantro into the hot rice and then spoon that in.  Black beans, corn, tomatoes, onions and a generous spoonful of salsa should finish it up!  If you want to feed a crowd, then put it all out buffet style and let each person make their own bowl.  Hearty and satisfying, hard to beat.  The guys in my household tell me they would eat this everyday and be happy!
