Description

This Chipotle Tomato Rice Power Bowl calls upon a great foundation of zesty tomato rice, then builds upon it with Latin-inspired toppings, such as greens, black beans, corn, avocados, pumpkin seeds, and tomatoes.

Ingredients

Chipotle Tomato Rice:

Toppings:

  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small avocado, sliced into 8 slices
  • 1 bell pepper (orange, yellow, red, or green), thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup vegan ranch dressing (may choose Southwest or Chipotle flavor)*

Instructions

To make Chipotle Tomato Rice:

  1. Place olive oil in a medium pot and heat.
  2. Sauté onion and garlic in oil for 9 minutes.
  3. Add brown rice and toast it for 2 minutes, stirring.
  4. Add crushed tomatoes, water, bullion cube, chipotle seasoning, and salt (optional).
  5. Stir well, cover with a lid, and bring to a simmer. Cook over medium heat about 1 hour, until liquid is absorbed and grains are tender. May add additional water to replace water lost to evaporation as needed.

To make Chipotle Tomato Rice Power Bowls:

  1. Place one-fourth of the rice (a scant 1 cup each) into 4 individual serving bowls (or meal prep containers). Note: May serve rice hot, warm, or chilled in this recipe, as desired.
  2. Top each bowl of rice with: ½ cup chopped kale; 1/3 cup black beans; ¼ cup corn; ¼ cup cherry tomatoes; 2 slices avocado; ¼ bell pepper; 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds; 2 tablespoons vegan ranch dressing.
