10 min Vegan Burritos
I try to avoid all processed food. Processed vegan is still processed and likely to contain the same fillers, chemicals and preservatives as any other packaged food. Regardless of the diet you choose to follow the main goal should always be to consume most of your nutrition from foods that are real with your maximum calories coming from vegetables.
I think it’s amazing that there are an increasing number of restaurants and choices at stores that honour a plant-based/vegan diet, however I also feel that in terms of eating for health these choices should be the exception not the norm.
Personally I only eat out a few times a year or if I’m travelling. A huge part of this lifestyle is a commitment to cooking, and I take a great deal of pride in feeding my family and myself food that I make since I’m in control and aware of everything that goes into it.
However as a busy, working, single mom I am also aware of those days where you just need a break and can’t spare more than 15min to get dinner on the table. Life happens but that doesn’t mean you have to give in to the drive thru…. you are far better off to make a modestly healthy and quick meal at home. These vegan burritos were quick (like 10 min quick!), tasty andddddd perfect for the kids school lunches the next day too! Can’t beat making supper and packing lunches in under a half hour.
All you need to do is add the following to a large skillet and cook on medium heat for about 10 min or until heated through and at a low boil. Let mixture cool down to warm and then scoop onto wraps and serve:
1 full package of Veggie Grounds (as shown above)
1 box/can organic refried beans
1 can organic brown beans
1 can organic black beans
2 diced red bell peppers
1 diced large white onion
1 extra large mason jar of canned diced tomatoes (I used what I had canned from my garden tomatoes this past summer but you can substitute for store bought canned organic diced tomatoes instead)
Spices to taste: cumin, turmeric, Italian seasoning and salt/pepper.
* I also used some chili lime olive oil and sriracha to really spice it up but this is totally optional depending on how you feel about spice 🙂
