WHY WE LOVE THIS HEALTHY RECIPE

Quick and easy to make: Fajitas are something that my family says they can have on the regular since they take about 30 minutes to put together.

Simple to customize: You can pretty much use any protein and veggies you like on hand to suit your family. The girls in our house always choose these Vegan Burrito Bowls while the boys in the family love these Steak Burrito Bowls or Chicken Burrito Bowls.

Lots of options for toppings and serving choices: You can even add some grain-free nachos for an added crunch or serve with your favorite rice if you’re not a fan of cauliflower rice.

Suitable for multiple dietary lifestyles: Naturally gluten-free, grain-free and can easily be made paleo, Whole30, low carb and keto with just a few swaps.

Works great for meal prep: Everything can be made ahead of time and stored in lunchbox or meal prep containers.

Ingredients you need:

For the healthy burrito bowls:

  • Veggies:
    • Sweet potato – cut into cubes and seasoned with smoked paprika
    • Red bell pepper – deseeded and diced
    • Mushrooms – sliced
    • Corn –  you can use frozen corn or canned  (leave out for paleo / Whole30 / low carb / keto)
    • Black beans – drained and rinsed (leave out for paleo / Whole30 / low carb / keto)
  • Aromatics: Onion + garlic
  • Seasonings: tomato paste, cumin, garam masala + coconut aminos

How to make Vegan Burrito Bowls

  1. ROAST THE VEGGIES: Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread out the sweet potatoes and toss with oil, salt and smoked paprika and roast in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until crispy and full softened, flipping halfway through.
  2. SAUTE THE VEGETABLES: Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet or pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, bell peppers, tomato paste, cumin, and garam masala. Cook for 5 minutes, until the vegetables soften. Next, add the mushrooms and corn (if using), cooking for 3-4 minutes more. Add the coconut aminos and black beans, if using. Squeeze in the lime juice, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the beans soften.
  3. MAKE THE SIDES: Cook the cauliflower rice until soft and make the guacamole. Mash avocado with the rest of the lime juice and some salt and pepper.
  4. ASSEMBLE THE BOWLS: Serve the sweet potato and black beans in a bowl together with the cauliflower rice, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, and extra lime juice. 

STORAGE AND REHEATING TIPS
