As a dedicated, Southern vegetarian, I am always looking for healthy, quick, and affordable meal options for my busy days on the go. This time of year is especially exciting with fresh tomatoes, squash, corn, zucchini, green beans, and peppers popping up in the garden almost daily. After a couple of trial meals with my homegrown veggies, this one is by far one of my favorites!
Mexi-Veg Brown Rice and Beans
When I am busy traveling for work I like to meal prep in advance, but I realize that we all do not have that luxury. This recipe is great as both a pre-made meal that you can heat up, or for those of you who don’t have any meal prep time, but do have a quick five minutes to throw it together.
