“in a world that is filled with anger and hate, today choose to be the light and do something positive, make someone smile or offer a compliment to someone who looks down” 😉 those are my thoughts for today!
Alright, because I love this recipe SO much I have decided to share another meal from my eBook, Simple Clean Vegan Lifestyle! again I am sure you are wondering why I keep sharing these, and asking why would I buy the book then? well quite simply, it’s just more convenient to have everything in one place for those who actually like to use the recipes on a regular basis! So if you want more simple healthy meal ideas be sure to check out the eBook, if not I hope you enjoy this recipe anyways!
I have also been trying to add videos to YouTube so sharing something with you that is not only useful and delicious it also lets me have more time to add more quality to some of my other/older blog posts! 😉
ok, so…ok! on to the recipe!!!
In the winter I really love warming foods like this especially when you give it a little bit of heat from the seasonings!
Rice or quinoa is definitely one of my go-to’s when I want to have something easy and fast to prepare!
Today I think you will really like this healthy mushroom broccoli pepper rice because it’s not only easy but it’s packed full of warming spicy flavors.
First, I know I say all the time BUT, cook a batch of rice or quinoa so you can store it in the fridge and have it ready to go for things like this… otherwise you have like 40 minutes to prepare rice! That is definitely NOT something I call quick and easy!
When you have the rice (or quinoa) prepped you can just toss it in a skillet with some veggies and spices and have a really fast lunch with a salad on the side or a really fast dinner!
I didn’t use any high salt soy sauce on here, instead I used a few spices and let the flavors of the veggies really shine here! It’s amazing how great food can taste when you can actually taste each individual food, instead of only tasting salt! 😉
Speaking of the foods and their flavors, you can 100% swap these two suggested peppers for a more mild flavor if you wish, this recipe is actually what Nick has been taking to work for lunch lately and it is kinda spicy so if you don’t love spicy feel free to do bell peppers or sweet peppers instead it will still taste delicious!
This Healthy Mushroom Broccoli Pepper Rice is:
Great for making in advance and packing for lunch
Perfect warming dinner
