mexi-quinoa | no meat may | recipe 2 of 31

If we’re friends, or you just know me from my blog or my socials, you’ll know I’m vegan and I’m very bloody worried about the climate, what we’re doing to the planet and the future we are leaving our children/grandchildren, nieces and nephews/children of our friends {by looking at it that way, we’re including everyone – not just those of us who are parents!}.

The simplest and most immediate thing we can do as individuals to have an effect on climate change {which, to be honest, can feel insanely overwhelming most days!} is to stop eating animals and animal products.

No Meat May sets the challenge to each of us to go a month without meat. This is easy in our home because I’ve been vegan for almost 4 years and vegetarian for about 5 before that. A lot of people I know, however, wonder what on earth they will eat if they aren’t eating meat and dairy. So I decided to share 1 recipe every day for the month.

This one’s a favourite – super easy and ridiculously tasty. You can add more spice if you’re a spice hound like me {although, if you’re feeding kids you might want to leave it out and then just sprinkle chilli flakes on your serve once you’ve plated it up!}.

Tofutti {available at most vegan/cruelty free specialty stores} make a great sour cream which I like to dollop on top and squeeze some extra lime juice on for good measure. This photo and recipe link come from Damn Delicious, but you can play with the ingredients to suit the tastebuds living in your house.

We also sometimes make Mexi-Rice where I sub out the quinoa for rice or do a combination rice/quinoa. Also super tasty with riced cauliflower or broccoli.
