This is one of the few meals I crave on a regular basis. I love veggie burritos. The first time I made these for my sister, she sat down, took a quick look at what I was presenting before her and quickly spat out “ wheres the meat “ . I reassured her she too would love them and would not miss the meat at all and she didn’t. In fact she had two and was so full she could barely walk home ( she lives next door ) I can now happily say Dan has added these to the list as one of her go to meals…no meat added.
Choose your veggies. You can use any of your favourites in this recipe..or simply what you happen to have on hand. I chose butternut squash, sweet potato, carrots and onion. Now chop.
Get together your oil and spices. I use 2tbl of safflower oil and 1 pack of burrito seasoning ( I know in the pic it’s fajita but thats what I had so… ) You can also use your own mix of seasonings like cumin, paprika, chili powder etc. – just use whatever makes you happy!
Pour on the oil and spices.
You can now mix it around to coat the veggies or as I do if you are using a bowl with a lid, pop the lid on and SHAKE!
Spread the veggies out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 350 for about 40 min or until a fork can easily puncture the veg.
Now for the beans! You can use whatever kind you like. I used a can of white kidney and a can of mixed beans. Black beans would also be yummy. Rinse with cold water.
Get the garlic. I used two cloves but again you can use as much or as little as you like.
And 2tbl oil. I used a chili pepper infused oil but you can use any old stuff, it will do the same thing but without the spice.
Dump the oil and garlic in your food processor and give it a quick pulse. Now add the beans and mix until smooth. I also add about 1tbl of cumin to the mix. If the beans are not mixing to your desired consistency try adding some veg stock or water to smooth it out.
Get together the fixins. I like lettuce, tomato, peppers, avocado, cheese, salsa, yogurt and hot sauce!
Assemble and enjoy.
