The ultimate vegan burrito! A flavor-packed plant based lunch or dinner idea, it’s stuffed with Mexican rice, seasoned black beans and peppers, and avocado.




  1. Start the Spanish Rice (aka Mexican Rice).
  2. Meanwhile, remove the stems from the mushroom caps and thinly slice them. Thinly slice the red onion. Thinly slice the bell pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Saute the veggies for 6 to 7 minutes until tender. Add the black beans (drained and rinsed), garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, paprika, kosher salt, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons water. Cook for 2 minutes until heated through and the liquid evaporates.
  4. Pit the avocado. Mash it and sprinkle it with kosher salt.
  5. When the rice is done, finish it with the seasonings per that recipe. Then get ready to roll!
  6. Place the tortillas on individual plates. Spread 1/2 cup rice on each one, at the center. Top each with about a quarter of the vegetable and bean mixture, and a quarter of the avocado. (Add any optional sauce if desired.) Fold the tortillas in half over the filling, then tuck them around and underneath the filling, forming a tight roll. Fold in each side of the burritos, then roll them up. Cut in half and serve.


*You’ll have lots of leftovers, which you can use throughout the week or make into Spanish rice and beans by adding black, pinto, or kidney beans.
