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.
Vegan Burrito Bowls with Avocado Rice
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.
