Meatless Monday: Easy Tomato Spinach Rice

Good Morning! Are you wondering what to eat for dinner tonight? Don’t worry, I have you covered!

IMG_3475How about a yummy bowl of chunky tomato and spinach rice? Doesn’t that sound pretty good right now? It’s so easy to make, and it’s super comforting for the whole family after a busy day!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook time:  45 minutes
Total time:  50 minutes
Serves: 4


  • Chunky tomato Primavera sauce; 5 cups (I used a favorite recipe from the book Better Than Vegan you can use store-bought, or your favorite recipe.)
  • Textured soy protein (TVP) ; ½ cup
  • Cooked brown rice; 2 cups
  • Raw baby spinach leaves; 8 cups
  • Pepper; ⅓ teaspoon or to taste
  • Nutritional yeast; ½ cup


  1. Start cooking a batch of brown rice until rice is tender, about 35-40 minutes.
  2. While rice is cooking, heat up your Primavera sauce in a 5-quart saute pan. Heat, and bring to a slow simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the TVP and simmer slowly for 5 additional minutes.
  3. When rice is done cooking, add it to the Primavera sauce and stir to mix well.
  4. Add baby spinach leaves and stir until just slightly wilted. If you prefer your spinach softer, cook longer.
  5. Serve immediately and sprinkle each serving with 1 to 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast.

It couldn’t be any easier to plantify your plate! It’s an easy clean up, it’s delicious and it’s a super nutritious meal your whole family will love!


Cheers, Karen
