Cheezy Black Bean Burrito Bowl

Print

I created this due to the fact that I am ALWAYS in the mood for a good burrito bowl; so why not make it an easy one that I can whip up at home AND is fresher than anything I can buy?

Further Food Commentary:

This vegan-friendly burrito bowl is loaded with as much nutrition as it does flavor! The black beans, quinoa, and veggies in this bowl provide a great deal of fiber and protein, which is the dynamic duo when it comes to keeping you full. This dish is also a great source of heart-healthy potassium, iron and vitamin C, as well as bone strengthening vitamin A and calcium.

The healthy fats from the avocado helps your body absorb all of these great nutrients more readily, meaning your body can utilize them much faster.

Stars ( Reviews)

  • Prep Time:10-15 minutes
  • Cook Time:15 minutes
  • Servings: 1

Ingredients

1/2 cup organic black beans, rinsed
1/4 cup organic white quinoa
2 cups greens mix
2-3 mushrooms, sliced
1/4 to 1/2 avocado, sliced
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of sea salt
1 to 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
Diced cherry tomatoes
Organic salsa

Instructions

1.Begin by cooking your black beans on the stove. Rinse first, and then add to a small pot to heat the beans. As they are heating, add a touch of water, and then begin adding spices such as cumin and chili powder. These give the beans some flavor. Simmer.
2. As the beans cook, begin the quinoa. Add 1/4C quinoa to about 3/4C water and bring to a boil.
Let the quinoa simmer with a lid for about fifteen minutes.
3.While the quinoa and beans are cooking, prepare your bowl of greens, dice the tomatoes and mushrooms, and slice your avocado.
4. Once the quinoa has been cooked, mix in the nutritional yeast to give it a cheeeeeezy flavor! I also add a little chili powder and flakes to give the quinoa a spicy kick!
5. Add the beans, quinoa and all the toppings to your bowl of greens. This includes all the chopped veggies and avocado, as well as the salsa.
6. Now go crazy and face plant! I usually drizzle mine with tons of sriracha, but feel free to eat it with whatever you like!
