Daily Vegan Lunch for 1 February, 2013: Taco Rice

IMG_2461

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup walnut meal (finely ground walnuts)
1/2 cup TVP, reconstituted in 1 cup water for 3 minutes
1/4 cup tomato puree, sauce, or spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon taco seasoning

Oil for frying

Lettuce, shredded
Cooked rice
Tomatoes, chopped
White onion, chopped
Red bell pepper, chopped

Other ingredients that I didn’t have but would have wanted to put on there!

Avocado (I ate all the ones I had the night before, oops) or guacamole
Black olives
Salsa or green mole
Refried or black beans

Fry the walnut meal in a little oil in a pan until the walnuts become fragrant, then add TVP mixture and simmer for three minutes or so until any excess water begins to cook off. Add 1/4 cup tomato puree and taco seasoning, stir and set aside.

Create your bowl by putting rice on the bottom and walnut/TVP meat next, spreading the veggies on the top.
