Meatless Monday: Wild Rice Veggie Bowl

Meatless Monday Wild Rice Veggie Bowl

This is it...the only recipe you'll need for Meatless Monday this summer! Filled with creamy avocado, crunchy veggies, sweet mango, and wild rice, I instantly fell in love with this bowl as soon as I dug in. One of the best parts about it is that it all comes together in under 10 minutes!

I think you can make this bowl with whatever vegetables or add-ins you like - I added kale for extra fiber and green goodness but you can mix in spinach, arugula, or any sort of leafy green. Don't like red peppers? Try yellow or orange! Switch out black beans for garbanzo - the combinations and deliciousness are endless.
