Greens and other veggies are topped with protein/fiber packed beans, rice, BBQ sauce and ranch in this Ultimate Vegan BBQ Bowl.
I'm so excited to share today's recipe with you. It is one of my favorite weeknight, weekend, anytime meals. It takes about 20 minutes to put together (or less if you have leftover rice on hand) and the flavors are awesome.
Which is why I had to call this the Ultimate Vegan BBQ Bowl. Because I don't think it gets any better than this bowl right here.
How to make the Ultimate Vegan BBQ Bowl
Tons of greens and other veggies are topped with protein/fiber packed beans, rice, BBQ sauce and ranch. Yes...vegan ranch.
If you've never had vegan ranch you can check out my recipe here or buy it pre-made.
BBQ sauce is one of my favorite vegan condiments. It adds a ton of flavor and is easy to find at any grocery store.
Note: most BBQ sauce is vegan by nature - just make sure to read the ingredients for good measure.
