Chili Lime Rice (Vegan, Gluten Free)

My husband made this Chili Lime Rice the other day.  He shared a picture in the Facebook group I run and everyone asked for a recipe.  So he made it again and measured everything out this time.

This recipe is for spicy food lovers!  The first time he added black beans, but forgot to add them the second time, so feel free to add black beans to this if you like.

This flavorful rice is vegan and gluten free.  He used green Serrano chili peppers, but you can really use any peppers you like.  If you want a little heat, but not too much, you can remove the seeds from the peppers after roasting.

Fall Rice Bowl (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Fall Rice Bowl.  I am loving that fall is here.  Cooler air and all the yummy fall produce!  Squash is my favorite seasonal vegetable.  It went so well in this healthy vegan Rice Bowl.

Then again, squash goes so well in just about anything!  Sweet or savory.  I used butternut squash, but I also think kabocha squash would work nicely.

If you don’t eat rice, this can also be made with quinoa.  I chose wild rice because I think the earthy flavor goes so well with the squash. I think kale or even mushrooms might be other nice additions.
