Cooking Tip

Although this dish is vegan, you can add grilled chicken, fish or steak to make it more like a fajita bowl and increase the protein content. Uncle Ben’s Instant Brown Rice has all of the benefits of traditional brown rice, but it is partially cooked and can be prepared in as little as 90 seconds.



Performance Fact

Brown rice, which has only its husk removed during milling, is richer in fiber, trace minerals, and B vitamins than more processed white rice. The rice promotes sustained energy, fullness, and immune health. The avocado provides a nice source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Tomatoes and lime juice make this dish a great source of vitamin C.
