Healthy Vegan Burritos

If you’re anything like me, than you love burritos. But I haven’t always loved them – in fact, I used to be afraid of them. When I’d hear the word burrito, I’d cringe and associate gross meanings with it. I’m not sure why, perhaps because they had beans and I used to think beans were gross? Probably.

Anyways, now I am obsessed. My friend and I go to our local burrito shop and get vegan burritos with all our fav things; rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, GUAC, salsa, black olives, corn, etc. I love getting this; the only problem is, it’s a bit expensive. So… I thought, why not just make homemade burritos? It’s much cheaper, AND I can have more than one without having to worry about an expensive price. And I do eat a lot so it works out perfectly. ALSO, leftovers.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups of rice
  2. 1 can of black beans
  3. 1 cup corn
  4. 1 jar of salsa
  5. 3+ avocados
  6. 1/2 cup black olives
  7. lettuce
  8. tomatoes
  9. optional; daiya cheese
Instructions
  1. Begin with cooking your rice. Everybody cooks rice differently so you could do it on the stove top or in a rice cooker.
  2. While the rice is cooking, open your can of beans and heat them up in a pot.
  3. I used frozen corn, so I poured some into a sauce pan and heated this up as well.
  4. While those things are cooking, cut up your avocados and mash them into a bowl. Add lemon and pepper until everything is mashed well into a guacamole.
  5. Pour some salsa into a little cup, or make your own (sun dried tomatoes, spices, water, etc)
  6. Wash your lettuce and tomatoes, and cut them up to place them on your burrito.
  7. You can either buy olives already diced, or like me, buy whole ones and just cut them up. (I like them fresh)
  8. Once everything is cooked and ready, spread out your wraps on a plate and begin burrito making.
  9. First add the guac, then the beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, olives, corn, and salsa.
  10. Fold them up into a burrito (the best that you can) and either eat like that, or you can heat it up or grill it somehow to more realistically resemble a burrito.
Notes
  1. Save the leftovers for dinner tomorrow night! Make another burrito, or use the ingredients to make a great burrito bowl (minus the wrap), or add to salads, etc.
