Healthy Vegan Green Rice Bowl

in vegan •  last year

It's been a while since I posted any recipes, research has been crazy lately! 12 hour days have not been permitting me to be on steemit, which means I've been missing out on all of the delicious recipes you amazing steemians have been posting! I'm happy to be back and hoping to keep posting at least once a week :)

This recipe is our go-to Sunday dinner. It's filling, delicious and is great for leftovers. Don't be deceived by the ingredient list, it may look like a lot of work but it's actually pretty simple! What's even nicer is that we only use one pot! I love recipes that require minimal clean up :) Let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy!



  • 3 cups brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth

Sweet Potato

  • 1 large sweet potato

  • pinch of salt


  • 2 cans undrained black beans

Toppings (optional)

  1. Cook rice in rice cooker, or pot as instructed.

  3. Add 2 tbsp water small pot (or frying pan, we use the same pot for cooking the veggies and warming the beans) and add red onion, garlic, spinach and jalapeño pepper. Cook until onion is soft then add to blender. Add cilantro and vegetable broth to blender and blend until smooth.
