Postpone Meatless Monday to Taco Tuesday this week with these vegetarian black bean burritos. It’s a super easy and super quick recipe that will please veggie-heads and meat-eaters alike.
The heart of this meal is a simple black bean base and creamy avocado-lime sauce. There are only 8 necessary ingredients, making this recipe perfect for your college student budget. I absolutely recommend adding in some extra classic ingredients like hummus, corn, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese—go wild.
Vegetarian Black Bean Burritos
- Prep Time:10 minutes
- Cook Time:10 minutes
- Total Time:20 minutes
- 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 5 tortillas
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon agave
- 1 pinch salt
Add the beans, salsa, and cumin into a large sauce pan and heat on medium for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
To make the sauce, add avocado, lime juice, olive oil, agave and salt to a blender and mix until smooth.
Build the burrito as you please with any additives you choose. I added hummus, baby spinach and corn for the win.
Wrap up that black bean goodness as though you were gently swaddling a precious baby child. First, fold one side towards the middle.
Wrap the bottom flap upwards.
Fold in the other side for tortilla-wrapped perfection and let the fiesta begin.
