Plus, it’s super easy to customize with whatever veggies and protein sources you have on hand. So, let’s get cooking!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice (or your preferred grain)
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Cook your rice according to package instructions, or using your preferred method.
  2. While your rice is cooking, heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped bell pepper and zucchini to the skillet, and sprinkle with garlic powder and cumin. Stir to combine, and cook until the veggies are tender, about 8-10 minutes.

  5. Once your rice is done cooking, divide it into four bowls. Top each bowl with the veggie and black bean mixture, then add diced avocado on top.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add any optional toppings you like, such as fresh cilantro, lime wedges, or hot sauce.
