Vegan Lunch Recipes: 10 Minute Mexican Lunch Bowl

This Mexi Lunch Bowl will kick your weekly Chipotle habit and not only save you major money, but will leave you feeling full, energized, and excited to make one again. The secret is my 5-minute vegan queso. This queso is gluten free, soy free, and can be made nut free (No cashew soaking needed!) I use rice, beans, and my 5-minute vegan queso as the base of this Mexi bowl and then load it up with fresh veggies. You can continue to mix and match your favorites to constantly reinvent this tasty recipe.
