Burrito Bowls

Burrito bowls are a super tasty affordable option for plant-based meals! Most of these ingredients are bulk or canned foods, meaning they are cheap but also shelf-stable! This means burrito bowls make a great last-minute meal when the fridge is totally empty!

Below is the recipe that I love to make but feel free to switch it up! Burrito bowls are highly customizable, so you can adjust to your liking! 

Burrito Bowls


1 cup uncooked white rice

1 can pinto beans

1 can corn

1 bell pepper, sliced

20 grape tomatoes, halved

1 teaspoon avocado oil

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

sea salt and black pepper to taste
