Quick Fix Dinner Idea!

Dirty Rice, BBQ Beans, Potato Salad! 

This meal was good, easy, and 99.9% vegan.  We still eat honey, and I used it to help "doctor" up canned vegetarian beans.  Also-my beloved Worcestershire sauce is technically not vegan.  It contains a tiny amount of anchovy in it!  I had a full bottle in the pantry, and rarely use it...We will finish this bottle and then try to find a vegan version to use.

Dirty Rice 

2 c cooked white rice (cooked and cooled)
1/2 package Boca crumbles
1/2 green bellpepper, 1/2 white onion, 1 large celery stalk, 1 garlic clove-all chopped and    sauteed
1 tsp Tony's seasoning
Worcestershire sauce-to taste (Gonna see if I can find a vegan version at Whole Foods)

Saute veggies/garlic, add Boca "meat" crumbles and heat.  Add Tony's and Wor. sauce.  Stir meat and rice together.  I let mine sit in the fridge, and reheated several hours later so the flavors could blend.  Is GREAT for leftovers!

BBQ Beans

1 large can vegetarian baked beans (Bush's are great!)
several drops of liquid smoke 
2T honey (*technically not vegan, but not an animal product.  I love honey!)

Potato Salad

3 organic Russet Potatoes-I peeled 2, and didn't peel the last to keep some of the nutrients
1/4 cup Veganaise
2T yellow mustard
S&P to taste
4 baby kosher dills pickles, chopped

Chop potatoes, boil, and drain.  Mix ingredients and chill :)  Easy peasy!
