Want a healthy and tasty recipe that'll be ready in less than 20 minutes? Then you NEED to try our vegan take on Taco Rice. Originating from Okinawa in the 80's, this was a very popular dish for U.S. military personnel stationed in Okinawa at the time and is a fusion of Japanese and Tex-Mex flavours. We've put a healthy twist on this delicious dish and have topped it with our Dibble Wasabi Mayo to give it that extra kick. And if you're feeling super lazy, you can replace the Taco Mix recipe with packet taco mix. Enjoy this blend of flavours and happy cooking!
