Vegan rice bowl packed with protein

This rice bowl incorporates a rich inclusion of nutrients that help with muscle repair and immune function. It is a perfectly complete meal for the vegan or vegetarian. The edamame and tofu pack in the protein in this meal. And the Bok Choy and Bunapi mushrooms add the antioxidants and vitamins C and B which help boost the immune system. The red and brown rice mix further power this bowl with essential minerals and fiber as well. If you can’t find bunapi mushrooms then try this recipe with enoki mushrooms instead. I have used miso and brown rice vinegar to give it an umami taste. You can make it more spicy and if you want to give it a kick try adding fresh thai chillies.

Ingredients :

  1. 1 cup shelled cooked edamame
  2. 1 cup diced hard pressed non-gmo tofu
