Vegan Meal Prep: Potato & Mushroom Tacos w/ Mexican Rice


This week, I was being lazy. I normally look around for recipes that I can meal prep, but I didn’t find anything this week that I had a taste for. I love Mexican food, so that was my go-to. This week I made potato/mushroom tacos with some rice and guacamole!

I started with the rice in the rice cooker. Found an easy Mexican rice recipe here.

While the rice was cooking, I chopped up a lot of potatoes and put them in the oven. I used spices that I loved, the recipe will be below, but go on your own taste. I put those in the oven and started cleaning up my kitchen.

After a while the rice was almost done, I decided to start the guacamole. I normally just use this one from Paleo Leap.

I love guacamole. I can’t wait to get the space to grow my own. They are becoming expensive.

The potatoes were getting close to finish, and I noticed, I simply didn’t make enough. I decided to slice some mushrooms and saute them for extra filling.


I had to try these before I packed them up.

The rice was a little mooshy, but otherwise I loved it. I used these grain taco boats. I normally don’t, but I thought they were cute.
