This makes enough for 4 servings

Spanish Rice, Quick Guac, and Fajita Veggies

This is what I made tonight, but you can of course modify like crazy!

Spanish Rice:
Two boxes of Near East Spanish Rice mix (I added in cilantro to taste)
1c frozen organic corn
1 can organic black beans
1/2 jar of organic corn salsa
1 can no salt tomatos
Chili powder to taste

Boil it all together in one pot. If you do not have Spanish rice, just use brown rice and season a bit more with salsa, cumin and chili powder.

Fajita veggies:
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 red onion all sliced.

Spray a pan with coconut oil and stir fry with salsa or any seasoning you like, to taste. I like my veggies crisp!

Quick Guac:
2 avocados
2-3tbsp red onion, minced
Dash of sea salt
1 tbsp cilantro
Sprinkle of cumin and chili powder
(You can also add tomato and lime but I was out)

Eat with organic corn chips or in a bowl by itself!

Chickpea Curry, Inspired by Kripalu’s Fall Cookbook

chickpea curry

2 Cups cooked or canned chickpeas
1 tbsp ghee or veggie oil
1/2 red onion, diced
1 1/2 tsp of all of the following: Garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, garam masala, chili powder plus more garlic, to taste, if needed
2 cups crushed tomato
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
Sea salt, to taste
fresh cilantro optional

Saute the onions and spices until softened, add tomatoes and salt and simmer for 30 minutes. Then add coconut milk and chickpeas until heated through.

I served this with 2 cups of brown wild rice. You can also add diced onion, carrot and peas if you want!
