Fun Fiesta Meatless Monday Bowl

My favorite kind of meal...

It’s a fun fiesta Meatless Monday! Mexican rice, simmered black beans, tangy orange jicama slaw, tomato salsa, avocado, pineapple-glazed Brussel sprouts, a dollop of Tofutti Brand sour cream & jalapeños.

So yummy, and the best part is it was assembled using all the veggies we prepped yesterday!

Recipe type: Dinner, Salads, Veggies
Cuisine: Gluten-Free
Ingredients
  • 12 oz pineapple juice
  • ¼ tsp gluten-free tamari
  • ¼ tsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (you can add more if you want it spicy)
  • Brussel sprouts
Instructions
  1. Combine pineapple juice, tamari, brown sugar, crushed red pepper flakes in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer until sauce thickens.
  3. While glaze thickens, flash fry the brussel sprouts, then blot them with paper towels. (I used a deep fryer at 375 degrees for 4 minutes)
  4. I haven’t done so but I assume you could roast the brussel sprouts instead. Pour the glaze over the cooked brussel sprouts and gently stir in.
