Hearty, low-glycemic and chock full of 12 grams of plant protein, the bowl combines Lotus Foods Regenerative Organic White Basmati Rice with the perfect mix of flavors from black beans, crunchy carrots, cabbage, radish, lettuce, pink pickled onions from beet juice, a creamy cashew nacho cheese sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime.

Its exceptional aroma, flavor and texture are perfect in salads and bowls, making it an ideal choice for this tasty new meal.
Lotus Foods Regenerative Organic White Basmati Rice is currently also in Urban Remedy’s Organic Chickpea Coconut Curry with Kale. Lotus Foods has supplied organic rice to Urban Remedy since 2018 to be used in various organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan and dairy-free menu items. The January 4, 2023 episode of the Food is Healing™ podcast, hosted by Urban Remedy Founder Neka Pasquale, features a discussion with Lee and Levine about how they source rice from small-holder farmers using regenerative organic practices, benefitting both people and planet.
“Lotus Foods is all about bringing heirloom rice varieties to US consumers and sourcing in ways that benefit people and planet. Working with Urban Remedy has been a perfect fit, from the care they take creating healthy and delicious meals to how they select organic ingredients that bring health to all” said Caryl Levine, Lotus Foods Co-Founder/Co-CEO.
“Urban Remedy’s mission is to create foods that are healing for people and the planet. We use organic and regeneratively grown ingredients to promote fertile, nutrient rich soil to support your microbiome and help the earth thrive. We’re proud to launch the Organic Burrito Bowl with Lotus Foods Regenerative Organic White Basmati Rice to help show the world how food is healing,” said Urban Remedy.
In 2020, Lotus Foods’ Organic White and Brown Basmati Rice became the first rice to achieve the rigorous Regenerative Organic Certified® standard, which promotes farming that enriches rather than degrades soil and values both animals and workers. Since 2008, Lotus Foods has been working with farmers who practice System of Rice Intensification (SRI) methods, which Lotus Foods calls More Crop Per Drop®. These methods minimize water usage, improve soil health, empower women, increase farm incomes, and reduce climate impact. More information about Lotus Foods’ efforts to change the way rice is grown globally can be found in the company’s latest impact report on lotusfoods.com and is featured in a recent video produced by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
