My Old Standby: Quinoa Bean Burritos



You know, I've made these burritos quite a lot in the past few months! I've posted about them here and here and I know I've made them plenty other times without bothering to post. I'd like to call it my old standby. It makes a lot and keeps well for meals throughout the week, or in this case, weekend. I've posted the recipe here. Feel free to change up the beans or veggies. I used red and green bell peppers, zucchini and spinach today because that's what I had in the fridge. I also switched the beans to kidney instead of black. I like to make them "enchilada" style by covering them in a chipotle tomato sauce with vegenaise drizzle. They would also be great with melted vegan cheese on top along with guacamole and dairy free sour cream.

Shannon has been looking for a good alternative to just plain bean burritoes. YAY I found a good link to show her. She'll be very impressed.

Her Burritoes usually consist of avacadoes, tomatoes, onions, salad reminents from the night before-haha-she cheats, maybe rice, and I don't know what else.

Thanks for the awesome fixture. Keep on cooking!

I made these the other night and they were awesome! There was enough filling for 8-10 good sized enchilladas, so we ate them for 3 days. I also doubled the sauce. Thanks for the great recipe!
