Meatless Monday - Avocado Rice

Monday, December 30, 2013

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. <3



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.

Avocado Rice

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups uncooked white rice, steamed
  • 2 avocados, ripe, pitted, out of skin
  • Lemon (or lemon juice) - just a squeeze
  • Garlic powder to taste
Directions:
  1. After you've steamed your rice, mash avocados into rice (or cut avocados into small chunks and mix into rice).
  2. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to the avocado rice.
  3. Sprinkle garlic powder on to taste.
  4. Mix well and enjoy.
Optional extras: Add a splash of gluten-free soy sauce and/or some lightly steamed peas and corn.

If you try this rice, let me know. We enjoy it a lot over here, and it all happened because I really wanted to try some rice and avocado together. Actually what is really good is rice and avocado with some mixed veggies (carrots, broccoli, green/red pepper, mushrooms, etc). Mmmm. :o) 

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

This is one of my all-time favorite dinners, I swear I've gone weeks eating this everyday, with the addition of greens and other veggies to change it up a tiny bit!
