Vegetarian Burritos

February 15, 2012

I’m always on the hunt for great vegetarian food that leaves me feeling satiated.  Over the past year I have used the El Cheapo Burrito recipe from the Vegan Piggy blog.  The recipe is a great base, and I enjoy substituting one of the peppers with other (hopefully in season) vegetables.  During the summer this includes summer squash, corn and mushrooms and during the cooler months kale.

Here is the delicious recipe:

3 C. Black Beans
1 Can Organic Diced Tomatoes
2 T. Olive Oil
Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Half Red Onion, diced
2 Bell Peppers, diced (any variety)
1 t. Smoked Paprika
1 t. Cumin
2 C. Cooked Brown Rice
1/4 C. Chopped Cilantro
Salt and Pepper to taste
12 Whole Wheat Tortillas – Fajita size

In a food processor, process half of black beans and diced tomatoes until smooth.  Set aside. In large heavy skillet, warm olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper over medium heat until fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Add onion, and saute for 3-4 minutes. Next add the peppers, paprika and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until veggies are tender. Add processed bean mixture and whole beans.  Heat through, and add more salt and pepper to your taste.  Mix in brown rice and cilantro.  Heat tortillas on flat cast iron skillet, and add about 1/2 cup mixture to each tortilla.
