Make your taco bowl a meal by adding in Mahatma® Organic White Rice and hearty plant-based ingredients like black beans, roasted delicata squash and all of your favorite toppings.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, cut delicata squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds with back of spoon and cut into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Toss with oil, honey, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Arrange on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and tender.
Divide rice among 8 bowls. Top with lettuce, black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. Serve with lime wedges.
Sprinkle toasted pumpkin seeds and crumbled queso fresco over top if desired.
Enjoy savory flavors with quality ingredients starting from a base of organic white rice to the toppings. This simple recipe takes just 20 minutes to put together for a filling Meatless Monday (or any day of the week) lunch or dinner. It’s perfect for when you want a delicious and hassle free meal!
This recipe is truly a vegetarian meal that everyone can enjoy and personalize! We suggest topping with lettuce, black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, lime wedges and sour cream. But, you can get creative with cheese, crushed tortilla chips or other proteins like chicken or ground beef, if desired.
And, using the ingredient amounts, you can serve a crowd around the table or save to enjoy throughout the week! If you need to switch things up to make different meals using the ingredients, use lettuce leaves or tortillas to make a wrap or use other toppings like the ones we listed above.
If you want to give this rice bowl a hearty whole grain touch, simply swap in Mahatma® Organic Brown Rice. Tip: To add a simple touch of flavor, cook the rice in half water and half high-quality vegetable broth or season the water with your own taco seasoning.
