Vegan Bean Burrito Recipe

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • onions
  • garlic
  • peppers (bell peppers and jalapeno pepper)
  • tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • brown rice
  • black Beans (no salt added)
  • spices: cumin, chili powders, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste

Adjust the spices to suit your spice preferences.

Using canned beans sure speeds up the prep and cooking time, but if you don’t mind the recipe taking a bit longer to prepare you can definitely use dried black beans.

Brown rice gives this whole food vegan burrito extra chewiness. However, if you prefer white rice, go ahead and use it instead. The rice is cooked separately, so no other alterations would need to be made.

deep, non-stick skillet or fry pan can really come in handy for recipes like this that have a lot of ingredients being mixed together on the stove top. A deeper pan helps ensure you don’t end up with filling going overboard.

  • can these be frozen?

    • I’ve never tried it. But, if you decide to give it a go you may want to make sure you wrap them up well. They’d be great for re-heating for lunch or a quick meal when you don’t want to spend a lot of time on prep. Let us know how it goes!
