  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • ½ yellow onion
  • 5 cups mushrooms
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 can black beans (400g), drained and rinsed
    • ½ can sweet corn (300g can), drained
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 tsp garlic powder

      • 2 cups rice, cooked
      • 2 avocados, mashed
      • 4 handfuls of leaf lettuce
      • 1 cup salsa
      • Fresh cilantro
      • Lime wedges



      1. Using a food processor, chop up the carrots, celery, onion and mushrooms all individually. You can do this step by hand, but using a food processor makes everything more fine and “meaty”.
      2. In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm up the olive oil. Add in the carrots, celery, and onion and cook until soft and translucent.
      3. In a separate frying pan, cook the mushrooms for approximately 5 minutes. Add in the paprika, coriander, cumin, red chili flakes, soy sauce and tomato paste. Cook for another 5-10 minutes.
      4. Add the carrot mixture to the mushroom mixture. Set aside.
      5. In a medium-size frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add in black beans, corn, paprika, cumin and garlic and cook on medium-high for 5 minutes, until they are slightly charred.
      6. Prepare the bowls. To each bowl, add in ½ cup rice, ½ mashed avocado, handful of lettuce, ¼ cup salsa, mushroom meat, seasoned corn and black beans, and fresh cilantro. Squeeze fresh lime over the top and enjoy!
