Tex-Mex Rice for Buddha Bowls


  • 1 1/2 Cups Brown Rice
  • 2 3/4 Cups Water
  • 1 Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 Tsp Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  • Cook rice according to instructions on package. Once half of the water is absorbed, add in the can of tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients. Leave rice uncovered, simmer and stir occasionally.  
  • Allow to simmer until rice is thick and has a creamy consistency. You don't want a soup here, you want it to be thick. Add 1-2 tbsp of water at a time as needed until you reach desired consistency and rice texture.
  • Add rice to plate or bowl and enjoy!
