Here’s the second Match-centric recipe in the lineup. Also a “Busy Vegan” feature, dirty rice is a fave at our house during the week. Granted, our version isn’t exactly traditional (the black beans, for example), but we like it.
This stuff is pure comfort food. Savory, satisfying and filling. Also super easy and cheap.
So we’re clear: this is not a particularly healthy meal. You could certainly do worse, but there’s no getting around this being a giant sodium bomb. That said, it won’t kill you to indulge every now and then. I’d just keep this one out of heavy rotation.
Vegan Dirty Rice
- Partially thaw Match and crumble into a small skillet. Add Bragg’s and pepper, to taste. Brown over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes
- Meanwhile, prepare rice according to package directions, adding Match when prompted
- Stir in beans 5 minutes before rice is finished simmering to warm
