Burritos are a fun way to pack in some vegetables and nutrients in the morning! I love that these burritos are customizable and easy to prep the night before!
These are also a great option for Lent or Meatless Monday - there's no meat involved but plenty of protein (and options to add more protein if you want!)
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Step 2. Place the onions and bell peppers on the baking sheet. Drizzle the veggies with the lime juice and sprinkle with cumin, paprika, salt & pepper.
Step 3. Bake for 15 minutes, until the veggies are soft.
Step 4. At the 15-minute mark add the black beans and rice to the baking sheet. Toss to cover the rice and beans with the spices.
Step 5. Return the pan to the oven for 5 more minutes.
Step 6. Assemble the burritos: spoon the veggie mixture onto a tortilla, top with a handful of spinach, and any other toppings of choice, then fold the sides of the tortilla and roll into a burrito. Enjoy!
Everything in these burritos is gluten-free except for the tortilla.
You can use a corn tortilla instead (buy the largest size you can find) or look for gluten-free tortillas at the store. Often you can find gluten-free tortillas with the regular tortillas or in the frozen section.
I kept the ingredients pretty simple in this recipe, but you can go crazy with the vegetables if you want. A few ideas:
Beans have some protein and so does spinach, but if you're looking for a higher protein count you could add some crumbled tempeh or cubed tofu.
You could also make tofu scramble and add it to the filling.
Place all the ingredients on one end of the tortilla, then fold in the edges, and roll.
Thank you God for this meal. Thank you for fueling our bodies with nutrients that will keep us going throughout the day. Amen.
