If you enjoy 5-minute Mexican meals, you must try this nutritious recipe! The brown rice is a good source of fiber, the black beans and yogurt contain protein, and the avocado is a healthy fat that will keep you full during your blood plasma donation! You can also add any other protein like chicken, tofu, or beef for an extra boost. Here's what you'll need and how to make a 5-minute vegetarian burrito bowl:
1 cup cooked brown rice (you can use frozen pre-cooked to save time)
1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
2-3 tablespoons salsa, or to taste
1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon shredded cheddar or Mexican-blend cheese
1 avocado, diced
Prepare brown rice according to package instructions – if you need to cook it, let water boil in a pot then add dry rice. If you've opted for frozen rice, heat in a microwave according to instructions.
Combine beans, salsa, yogurt, and cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until cooked through. Garnish with diced avocado or any other desired toppings.
