I think this recipe is a great example that eating clean and plant based, can still be incredibly satisfying if you incorporate starch based foods. Clean starch based foods won't make you gain weight! I lost weight eating this way! I wasn't eating salads when I first went vegan. I was eating potatoes, brown rice and broccoli.
The Starch Solution by Dr. John A. McDougall is an incredible book. I highly recommend it to anyone that has always enjoyed starch based foods like rice, beans potatoes but felt worried they were too "high carb" to be "healthy". This book totally debunks that myth by showing numerous historical examples of slim centenarians eating high starch diets...Examples of Japanese, Chinese, and other Asians eating sweet potatoes, buckwheat, and/or rice, Incas in South America eating potatoes, Mayans and Aztecs in Central America eating corn, and Egyptians in the Middle East eating wheat.
1 cup of short grain brown rice
1 can of black beans
1 sweet potato
your favorite salsa
First cook your brown rice since this takes the longest.
Dice up your sweet potato and drizzled with 2 TBS of cooking oil, salt, pepper, and bake at 420 for about 20 minuets.
Get you black beans, avocado, tomato, and cilantro ready to go.
Top your bowl with pickled jalapeno, salsa and enjoy!
