This vegan daal and brown rice dish incorporates tomato, ‘cheesy’ nutritional yeast, gluten-free, wheat-free tamari, broccoli, carrots, and the unexpected sweet-savory flavor pairings of maca and fresh mint. I often use maca in raw smoothies and desserts, so it’s fun to add it to this otherwise pretty simple daal and rice dish.  Here’s the recipe–let me know what you think!


Daal (lentils)

Brown rice

Tomato powder concentrate (or fresh or canned tomatoes)

Wheat-free tamari, Nama Shoyu or Braggs Liquid Aminos



Nutritional Yeast



Fresh Mint

Raw Maca Powder


Cook brown rice in a rice cooker or on the stove. Cook daal on the stove, then add all seasonings except maca and mint.

Garnish with fresh mint and maca. Enjoy!
