Vegan Burritos

Finally! A Vegan recipe, and a dang tasty one too. What a great way to start 2018. Starting it off with something fresh and new, Vegan Burritos. I’ve wanted to do a vegan recipe for a while because I knew I had to do one sooner or later. However, I didn’t really know where to start. To be completely honest, this is more my cousin’s recipe than it is mine. She is staying over here in Perth, Australia for a while and she has also been a vegan for a while. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have even thought of this recipe. So big thanks to Lea for taking this blog to another level, feel free to show her some love on Instagram: @leahortense8

Healthy Vegan Burritos

Every time I eat a really good vegan or even vegetarian recipe, it just makes me realise that meat is not necessary every single day. And although I don’t know if I could ever become a vegan, I most certainly am a believer that many of us should try to cut down on meat. At least going without it one day a week. I think it is a healthy habit that encourages you to have a balanced diet. And for me personally, it forces me to be a more creative cook and helps me to understand that there are more options than I think when it comes to what ingredients to use. 

Tasty Vegan Burritos

But I want to know what you guys and gals think. If you were to make a vegan burrito, what would you put in it? Would you make it spicier? Would you use white rice instead of brown rice? In fact, that brings me to another point. This recipe isn’t only super healthy. It is also great for people who want to cut down on carbs. So if you are like me, and you go to the gym on a regular basis, you should definitely try this. 

Delicious Vegan Burritos

I was actually very glad to have someone help me when making these burritos, not only because it made my life so much easier in terms of preparing everything and taking photos. It’s also because there is guacamole in this recipe, and I am not sure if I have mentioned this before. But I am actually allergic to avocado (I know, it sucks). And since Lea has made guacamole many times before and was able to taste and alter it. It ended up helping a lot because I didn’t have to worry about whether the recipe was good and whether it needed more salt or spices etc.

Finally, thanks so much for reading this post. I hope you all had a wicked New year!!

  1. Ingredients: (Serves 6-8)
  2. 800g of tinned black beans drained and rinsed
  3. 10-12 tortillas
  1. 4 tomatoes quartered and de-seeded
  2. 2 green chillies de-seeded and roughly chopped
  3. 1 lime juiced
  4. 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  5. ½ a red onion roughly chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon of cumin
  7. A bunch of coriander stalks
  8. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  9. 1 teaspoon of salt
  10. A pinch of black pepper
  1. 3 avocados
  2. 2 limes juiced
  3. 1 tomato de-seeded and finely diced
  4. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  5. 1/2 onion peeled and finely chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  8. A bunch of coriander chopped
Brown rice
  1. 2 cups of brown rice
  2. 2-3 cloves
  3. 1 teaspoon of dried herbs
  4. 1 teaspoon of salt
Criminalised onions and peppers
  1. 1 red onion roughly chopped
  2. 2½ red peppers
  3. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  4. 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  5. A pinch of chilli flakes
  6. Salt and pepper for seasoning
  7. 2 garlic cloves chopped
  1. Put all of your ingredients in a blender and blend for 2-3 minutes until smooth and well combined.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  1. Half the avocados, remove the stones and then scoop out the flesh (keep one of the avocado stones for later).
  2. Put the avocado flesh and lime juice in a bowl and mash together with a fork.
  3. Next, add all of your other ingredients and stir through until well combined. Once your guacamole is done, add the avocado stone. This will help to keep the guacamole ripe. Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge until ready to use.
Brown rice
  1. Cook the brown rice to packet instructions, but make sure you also add the cloves, dried herbs and salt.
Caramelized onions and peppers
  1. Pre-heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
  2. Add your olive oil, then add your onions and stir them occasionally.
  3. After about 10-15 minutes, the onions should start to brown. At this point add your garlic and peppers.
  4. Fry in the pan for about another 5 minutes, then turn the heat down low and cover with a lid. Cook the peppers covered for a few minutes. Then, take the lid off, add your chilli flakes and your smoked paprika, turn the heat off then set aside.
  1. Pre-heat a griddle pan, or if you don't have a griddle pan use a frying pan (if you are going to use the pan you used for the carimalized onions and peppers, make sure you clean and dry it first).
  2. Add your tortillas one at a time and toast for about 30 seconds to a minute on each side until slightly colored and heated through.
  3. Transfer the tortilla to a board, and start adding your beans, rice, peppers, gauc and salsa in which ever order you like.
  4. Fold in the tortilla on both sides then roll it all up nice and firmly (watch the video in this post if you are having trouble with the wrapping).
  5. Finally, serve your vegan burritos and eat them!
