Here's a recipe for Megan-simple taco beans with rice. This is something that will please everyone, veggies and meat-eaters alike, and it's SO FREAKING EASY. It also stores and saves well, so you can dish up three or four portions and stick them in the fridge and you have lunch for part of the week.
These Guacamole Tacos are so simple, delicious, vegan, and full of rich, velvety avocado and sweet corn that I just had to share with all the Offbeat Homies! Plus they can be made with just five ingredients — or you can top them with as many things as you'd like!
Maybe you are starting to make Meat-Free Mondays a regular at your dining table. Or maybe you are one-half of a vegetarian/meat-eating couple. As a vegetarian, I want more adventurous dishes, and my partner wanted meat. So over time, we have started cooking meals that are what I call "meat adaptable."
Because rice and beans is, in my opinion, a staple of a whole-foods vegan diet, I'd like to share with my homies another variation that, while not Megan-simple, is still delicious and will still please everyone — and it also happens to be pretty healthy. So here we have: Rainbow Brite rice and beans.
I have to have protein or I get cranky and tired. It seems the best non-meat protein option is the musical fruit… beans. After doing some research I heard that a natural cure for gas is cumin seeds. So I got to work on a recipe that incorporated cumin with the beans to come up with a dish that had fewer musical side-effects.
I am yearning for the delicious smells of dinner in the crock pot that I remember from childhood.
