Vegetarian Burrito Bowls


When I'm in the mood for burrito bowls but not in the mood for one that is a days worth of calories. I turn to this great vegetarian option! Its satisfying, clean, and packed with vitamins. 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of cooked rice (white or brown, your choice)
  • 2 cups of dried black beans, soaked overnight (you can also used canned seasoned black beans)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 16oz jar of salsa 
  • 6oz of cheese (I leave it to you how cheesy you want it)
  • 12oz frozen spinach
  • 1 cup of frozen (thawed) or canned corn
  • sour cream (optional topping)


How to Put It Together:

  1. Place black beans, undrained, in a small sauce pot. Add cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30mins-1hr 
  2. Cook rice according to the package direction... or if you're like me, use your handy dandy rice cooker!
  3. Microwave frozen spinach for 3-4 minutes, stir half way through. 
  4. Heat the corn in the microwave as well
  5. Once rice is cooked, build the bowls:
    • 1/2 cup rice
    • 2 oz spinach
    • 1/3 cup black beans
    • 3 Tbs corn
    • 1/3 cup of salsa
    • Tbs sour cream (optional)
    • 1 oz shredded cheese
