Why you’ll love this vegan burrito bowls recipe:

  • Like almost all bowls, this burrito bowl is flexible! If you see an ingredient on the list that you don’t like – remove it. If there’s ingredient you want to toss in – do it! Nothing in the recipe is absolutely necessary, except for the foundational ingredients of beans and rice.
  • Flavor wise, this recipe will rival your favorite meal at Chipotle. This bowl recipes makes the perfect flavor blend using natural flavors and textures with an additional flavor kick of herbs.

How to make this burrito bowls recipe perfect:

  • Turn it into a burrito: This recipe makes two burrito bowls, perhaps you’ll want to turn one of them into a burrito? If so, just add the ingredients to a tortilla and wrap it up. I recommend wrapping the tortilla in a wet paper towel and heating it for 10-20 seconds in the microwave before wrapping it.
  • Store the ingredients separately, if meal prepping: If you’re going to use this recipe to make multiple meals, I recommend storing the ingredients separately in airtight containers and combining them before eating. If you don’t want to keep all of the ingredients separate (and create more dirty dishes) then at least separate the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients. This will ensure the dry ingredients keep their texture and don’t become soggy.
  • Consider replacing the rice: Rice can dry out when refrigerated. If you’re meal prepping, consider using quinoa or a different grain of your choice.
