Vegan Burrito Bowls with Avocado Rice

These vegan burrito bowls have all the fixings of a burrito, like bell peppers, black beans, pico de gallo, and corn – minus the wrap! The brown rice is tossed in a zesty cilantro, lime, and jalapeno avocado sauce to make a green rice that you’ll want to serve with everything.

The real star of this recipe is the green avocado rice. If you’ve never tried “green rice”, let me be the first to introduce you to this creamy, flavorful rice that elevates the flavor and texture of any dish. Green rice is simply any cooked rice mixed together with a creamy green sauce, made from avocado. In this sauce, we’re using cilantro, lime, jalapeno, and avocado for the perfect zesty and spicy kick these burrito bowls need.

With the help of your Inspiralizer, prep is easy on the bell peppers! With simple pantry basics like corn and beans, these burrito bowls come together quickly. The corn is briefly cooked in the bell pepper juices for extra flavor in every bite.

I love changing up the tomatoes in a pico de gallo by using cherry tomatoes, especially if you’re a tomato lover – you get more tomato flavor, with that same zesty pico de gallo.

I can’t get enough of meals like these – I have them weekly, especially on the nights when I don’t feel like “cooking,” but want to get something healthy on the table.

How much onion should be spiralized? You mentioned cooking onions w the peppers but onion is not listed in the ingredients except the white onion for the Pico de Gallo. Also, can you clarify the amount of cilantro? It says 1.4 cup cilantro which I’m guessing is a typo. It sounds yummy!
Donna says:
Because I'm a diabetic this recipe doesn't work. It looks and sounds wonderful, but 52 carbs is a no no. I need to stay around 32-36 carbs. Any suggestions how to turn this recipe around. I think I'm going to have to let this one go and find something else.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it
