Meals in 30 Minutes or Less: Vegetarian Black Bean Burritos
For the college vegetarian that has few options in the cafeteria, here is a recipe that you can whip up in no time! With all the essential nutrients you need without meat, this recipe is also perfect to take on the go. This meal is made with all fresh ingredients, so you can’t go wrong!
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup cooked brown rice
12 6-inch flour tortillas
1 cup shredded leaf lettuce or spinach
1 tomato, diced
Combine the black beans, salsa and rice in a saucepan and simmer gently for three minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover and let it sit for five minutes.
In an ungreased skillet, heat a tortilla until warm and soft and then spread a line of the bean mixture down the center. Top with lettuce, tomato and more salsa, if desired.
Roll the tortilla around the filling and then repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Note: If you are partial to substitute meat products, you can include diced tofu or Morningstar Griller Recipe Crumblers to add more substance to the recipe.
