Some days nothing is more satisfying that a bean-grain-veggie combo served in a cute little bowl. Today, my friends, was one of those days. I had some leftover kidney beans after making my dog's favorite Snoopy's Great Pumpkin, Rice, & Beans dinner (from The Vegan Dog Book).
And I had a leftover avocado half from the last of my Veggie Ceviche (from Vegan in 30 Days). I don't know what inspired me to top my red beans with avocado, but it sounded really, really good! So I cooked up a half-cup of brown rice, topped that with beans, and then a layer of fresh avocado:
I seasoned the whole thing with Bragg's, chipotle hot sauce, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, ground dried garlic chips, and Cajun seasoning. And I actually topped my bowl with way more avocado than what's pictured. I used all of the half avocado, but I didn't want to cover up the beans in this shot.
I know it sounds like the simplest dish ever, but this has got to be my favorite bowl combo of all time. I'll never eat kidney beans without avocado again.
What are your favorite lunch (or dinner or breakfast) bowl combinations?
