Plant Based Burrito Bowls That Are Delicious

Better than Chipotle?

Yes.

Or Pancheros, or Qdoba…all of the above.

There’s something about buying, prepping, chopping, and cooking your own ingredients for something you know you’re going to love. You can practically taste the work you put into it- it’s satisfying it tastes incredible.

A Mexican blend of quinoa, black beans, and vegetables topped with fresh, crisp romaine, sweet tomato, spicy salsa, and ‘cheesy’ notes from the nutritional yeast. Burrito bowls are definitely one of our favorite meals.

I think the best part about this burrito bowl recipe is it’s versatility. It can be switched up in so many ways to make it just what YOU want! Which makes it a great option for cooking in bulk or for meal prepping. That way the ingredients can be heated up, and used in different ways.

Bowls are always easy, but you can also make a burrito or tacos with shells.

This is great if you get bored of meals easily, to feel like you’re having “something different”.

Healthy Burrito Bowl Recipe Tips:

  1. Don’t be stingy with the spices (quinoa and beans are bland, spice it up!)
  2. Try to use romaine lettuce or a darker green if you’d prefer, iceberg lettuce holds little to no nutritional value
  3. Top with plenty of Nutritional Yeast– trust us and thank us later.

And you’re off!

Enjoy this healthy and super tasty burrito bowl.
