Meal Ideas are a general idea of things to put together to make a meal, without having to worry about following an exact recipe. I’m doing a series of these to help myself on the days when I simply don’t know what to make or have a limited number of items on hand.

Since I learned how to make Izzy Proof Brown Rice, I have been using it a lot. I made big batches of it, and froze portions for ease of use. I love it, it makes my life a heck of a lot easier! I froze them into about 2 serving portion sizes, which fit perfectly into a sandwich baggy.
Sautee onions, bell peppers and garlic until soft. Throw in some jalapenos too if they’re you’re kinda thing.
Stir in some cooked rice, a can or two of black beans (drained), a packet of taco seasoning* and a can of diced tomatoes.
Season with salt, pepper and other spices to taste (smoked paprika, not-chicken bullion, etc)
Cook until all liquid is absorbed.
Eat this as is, on a bed of lettuce, or wrapped up in a warm tortilla with vegan sour cream, salsa and lettuce and fresh tomatoes for a yummy burrito.
* If you don’t have a packet of taco seasoning on hand or prefer not to use it, use some spices like Chili Powder, Cumin, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, etc.
