I don’t know about you, but for me, one of the things that always got in the way of eating healthfully is time. After a long work or school day, the last thing I ever wanted to do was cook — and instead, I was one to just grab what was easiest from either our freezer or a local restaurant. We made this rice cooker meal to help with that!

save money– this is made with budget-friendly ingredients!
save dishes– it requires just one pot!
If anyone is interested in our rice cooker, it is from the brand Vita Clay. This post is not a sponsored post but we did get sent a cooker to try out and we have had great results with it and would highly recommend it! It is not only a rice cooker but it also a slow cooker, digital steamer, and yogurt maker. You can use the code “vegan10” for a discount 🙂
This recipe is made in conjunction with our healthy eating challenge we are doing for the month of January– have you joined along? It is never too late to join, and we encourage you to join our facebook group as it as made this month of healthy eating so much easier with a supportive community! It’s been such a fun experience to see everyone’s delicious meals on #SSVhealthy 2018 🙂 Looking for more one-pot recipes? Check out these other recipes on the blog:

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste

Fresh lime, sliced into wedges
