Burritos are categorized into ‘quick meals’ at our house when I simply don’t have the time to make anything else. I usually stuff the burritos with beans, spinach, corn, cheese, tomatoes, and avocado. But this week, instead of having our traditional burritos, I decided to make this recipe from Vegetarian Times. It seemed simple enough to make to be able to categorize it as a ‘quick meal’, but had new flavors as opposed to our traditional burrito.
Right away, my husband and I both loved this tasty, simple, and healthy alternative to our traditional burrito. Not only did it make use of some yummy veggies, but it also had the black beans and cheese for that traditional burrito flavor. I even had some of the filling without the tortilla and enjoyed it very much. Not to mention, it was also an excuse for me to buy some Queso fresco, which I love!
For the Gluten-Free option, use gluten-free tortillas, corn tortillas, or simply eat the filling by itself.
For the recipe, head on over to Vegetarian Times website – Corn, Zucchini, & Green Chile Burritos (gluten-free option, vegan option). I used zucchini when making this recipe. For the vegan option, simply omit the cheese. For the gluten-free option, use brown rice tortillas, corn tortillas, or simply enjoy the filling by itself.[subscribe_box]
love this dish! my husband doesn’t like zucchini, but didn’t even notice it was in it. feels light, but filling.
Made this tonight…Loved it! still has proteins with the black beans, and is a good healthy option for a burrito! I added broccolini and mushrooms. Topped it with cholula sauce and was yummy!
Just made these tonight as they were on my list for months now. They are really delish!! We used vegan Daiya cheese which melted well and none in top. We will def be making these again. So quick and tasty:)
Aren’t these fantastic? Awesome that you loved them…I’ve simply even omitted the cheese and it still tastes great. Try my special black bean burritos with Tofutti brand vegan cream cheese next…nice twist on an easy burrito. =) Thank you!
