Vegan Sweet Potato Black Rice Wrap - 3 Vegan Lunch Ideas - Easy - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

 

Vegan Sweet Potato , Avocado & Black Rice Wrap

These flavors!!!! Sweet potato in a wrap is amazing. I used vegan buffalo wing sauce but green salsa would be amazing! You can totally leave out the rice and this would still be legit.

This is the main course. I trust you can figure out what kind of side to put with this. Fruit, chips, smoothie…. two wraps!!!!!  I had some black rice that I wanted to use but use whatever rice you have.

The flatbread (from aldi!) that I’m obsessed with seems like it would get soggy easily. If you’re pre-making these I’d suggest making a moisture layer of some sort. I think spring mix or butter lettuce might be good for that.

Vegan Sushi Roll Bowl - 3 Vegan Lunch Ideas - Easy - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

Vegan Sushi Roll Bowl
This was THE BEST THING EVER. Thanks pinterest for letting me know that these types of things exist. I could totally eat this everyday. Rice + Veggies <3

This recipe was inspired by Savory Tooth.

If you watch the video you’ll see my sushi came out yellow. Twice actually. Rage! I made Indian food yesterday and the tumeric just would not leave the pot!!! I made sushi rice, it turned yellow so Mark took pity on my mega frown and cleaned the pot so I could try to remake it. Second batch turned yellow so I just covered it up with toppings.

Vegan Pasta Salad with Lettuce - 3 Vegan Lunch Ideas - Easy - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

Vegan Pasta Salad with Lettuce
You can chill the pasta and eat it cold. You can serve it straight from the stove. Either way it’s soooo good. I’ve hooked on aldi’s brand of “fit” balsamic dressing. The reduced fat one. It’s still good and greasy! That dressing with toppings from the olive bar at the fancy food store make this lunch recipe addicting. From the olive bar I got a couple of fancy olives, a pepperoncini & some roasted tomatoes in oil. I thought I got roasted peppers but I’m pretty sure I grabbed tomatoes by accident. So good!

    • Dude, thank you for the support! I think you’re the first person who’s said something on that level. <3 sending some love your way.

  1. They all look great, and dang, I keep forgetting to check out the Aldi store here in Naples, Florida! I haven’t even been to the Trader Joe’s down here because it’s on the north side of greater Naples and far from where we typically hang out. I have to tell you, your enthusiasm comes across so well in your writing that I totally know what you rave about will be really good!

    • I hear ya. Yeah, I wish I was in walking distance to the stores I like to shop at. I’m in walking distance to a couple of stores but their prices are higher than I would like to pay. The struggle…. ha ha ha

        • Oh sad face. I LOVE adventuring on foot to some food or groceries but we end up driving 99% of the time. Dallas is a very spread out city. I want to move back to the suburbs because I think I could walk or bike to more things. And NOT for some hippie reason. I just straight up love walking from A to B.
