I have to admit – a lot of my recipes have a solid foundation in pure laziness. This recipe is a perfect example! I had all the ingredients I needed to make burritos but I was too lazy to make the tortillas from scratch like I’ve done in the past. Solution? Chuck all the ingredients into a bowl and make a burrito salad! The only extra addition required is some basmati rice for an extra carb hit. You can omit this if you are watching the calories but I’m asian, so I can never so no to rice! If you want to make this meal completely clean, I would suggest you swap the refried beans over for canned black beans and add some avocado 🙂
Warm Burrito Bowls with Lime Rice (Serves a hungry 1)
1/2 C Basmati Rice
1 lime (plus an opptional extra lime for garnish)
1/4 can of vegetarian refried beans
Jarred jalapenos (use as much as you like)
1/2 corn on the cob, boiled and kernels removed (alternatively, used canned corn kernels)
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Chopped Lettuce & baby spinach (as much as you like)
Fresh coriander to garnish
1. Cook rice by absorption with the juice of one lime added to the water. If you want your rice to be crunchy, let it overcook slightly.
2. While the rice cooks, heat up your beans and corn.
3. Assemble your burrito bowl! First add rice, then your greens, corn, tomatoes, jalapenos and a dollop of beans. Garnish with lime and coriander. Add avocado if you have some. Enjoy!
