If you want to eat well, save money, and save time, you need to get into meal prep. Specifically, Vegan Meal Prep.

If you crave the ease of boxed mac-and-cheese, this is just as fast, because you made the sauce on the weekend. Instead of grabbing takeout, you have saved lots of cash by making your own.
Because you planned ahead and cooked the chickpeas yourself, you shaved the costs down even more. Even if you use canned, you will be spending less than you would at a restaurant. Cooking a pot of quinoa is a smart way to keep meal prep in the fridge.

Whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Stir until the sauce thickens, then take off the heat. To serve, keep warm and add to the wraps, pasta, or cooked veggies. To save as prep, let cool, then transfer to a storage container and chill. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 4 days. Take two foods we love, put them in the same bowl, and you have Taco Rice. No, this delicious bowl-ification of the tender rice we love in sushi and the spicy filling we love in tacos was invented in Japan.
Like some of the best food fusions, this one came from an occupation. In , a restaurant owner named Matsuzo Gibo wanted to serve more of the American soldiers living on a nearby base, so he created a dish that used ground beef and taco seasoning mix from a packet, a favorite comfort food that the soldiers craved. It was a big hit, and was soon copied in other restaurants. It was designed to be quick and easy, making Taco Rice a dish you can make at home, too.
Just eat all the goodies you love on a taco, on soft rice. I love sushi, and the slightly sweet and sour seasoned rice is designed to be a supportive player under fish and vegetables.

If you look at taco rice menus in Japan, some of them even go so far as to offer bowls with ketchup on top, because, you know, Americans put it on everything.
The usual lettuce, tomato and cheese work, or you can use the avocado and microgreens that I did. Prepare or thaw seitan. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat for a few seconds, then add the onions and stir. Saute, stirring, until softened. Add the tomato paste and sherry and stir to mix well. Add the smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, smoked salt and tamari and mix.
Add the seitan and stir to mix and coat the crumbles thoroughly. Keep stirring until thick and browned, and heated through. First, cook the rice. Place the rice and water in a small saucepan and put over high heat. When the water boils, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and cook for 12 minutes.
Check to see if all the water is absorbed, then fluff and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes, before scraping out onto a plate to cool. Scoop the rice into 4 bowls and top with taco meat, avocado, tomatoes, peppers, greens, lime juice, and Sriracha sauce.
