This healthy, oil-free bean burrito recipe is from Forks Over Knives.
Burritos make a quick and easy vegan meal that can become a weekly staple at your house. And beans are an excellent source of protein that’ll leave you with a full and satisfied feeling.
For this Vegan Bean Burrito recipe you’ll need:
- 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.
A 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.
Once the rice and beans are all cooked up…
Add lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, or whatever veggies you like.
Wrap the burrito filling up in sprouted whole grain tortillas or your favourite gluten-free wraps. Or you can make this bean burrito recipe into a burrito bowl by going wrap-free.
No substitutions necessary, burritos are naturally a perfect vegan meal with a bit of everything… beans, grains, veggies, and spice!
