Healthy (Vegetarian) Southwest Bowl

September 3, 2013


  • 1 bag Morningstar Griller's Crumbles
  • 1 can  Black Beans
  • 1 container pre-chopped yellow onion
  • 1 container pre-prepared pico de gallo
  • 1 package Chobani original greek yogurt
  • 1 bag reduced fat shredded cheese
  • 1 bottle Bolthouse Farms Salsa Ranch Yogurt Dressing
The Morninstar crumbles are pre-cooked, so you just heat them up in a pan.  I heated them in a skillet with the onions exactly as I would if I were browning ground beef.  I rinsed the black beans and heated them in a separate pot, keeping them on low.  Once the crumbles and onions are thoroughly heated, make your bowl!  I stacked mine with black beans first, crumbles, pico, cheese, greek yogurt and then just a splash of the salsa ranch yogurt dressing.  This bowl was so incredibly satisfying!  Thanks to Sami for the suggestion of greek yogurt instead of sour cream!  I couldn't even tell a difference. (and of course you can tweak this with lettuce, rice, chicken, etc... those are just things I can't eat yet!)

The yogurt dressing can be found in your produce section.  It was something I just happened to stumble upon and was pleasantly surprised that it was very healthy!  And guys-  I love that I'm finding new and satisfying things to eat so that I don't feel deprived or on my own with food.  Ben ate this bowl with me and loved it!


  1. Sounds super yummy! I'm a big fan of "mexican" style dishes and I'll definitely have to try this out. I recently tried greek yogurt instead of sour cream and loved it! Couldn't tell the difference at all.

  2. this looks so good!! I wonder if I can sneak those crumbles past my meatatarian BF lol

  3. This sounds SO delicious! I am going to have to try it out. I'm glad you are enjoying the greek yogurt as sour cream. I am for sure going to try out that dressing soon!
