I'm a simple lady who likes simple recipes with simple, healthy ingredients. Additionally, I like recipes that take little time but yield delicious and satisfying food. These are the recipes I enjoy creating and sharing the most. They are also the recipes I enjoy eating the most.
Luckily, my husband shares the same sentiment. He is a fan of subtle flavors and textures. His favorite meals are ones with a variety of toppings and flavors. Because of this, I often revert back to making him veggie burgers and tacos for dinner several nights a week. But then I feel guilty, and try to come up with new ways for him to enjoy these types of meals.
Notes: The refried beans I used were from Trader Joes and the only ingredients were beans, water, and salt. Make sure you read the ingredients to make sure they are healthy and minimal. I have also made Richa's refried beans, slightly adapting the recipe by eliminating the spices, and have had great success.
Refried Bean, Rice, and Corn Burritos
inspired by Clean Foods
10 corn tortillas
1/2 c rice
1/4 c frozen corn
1 c water
1 15oz can refried beans(see notes)
1 c(+ more if desired) salsa
1/2 c shredded vegan cheese
toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, avocado, vegan sour cream
In a medium pot, combine rice, corn, and water, and bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is done.
Lightly grease a 9x11" casserole dish with Earth Balance. Preheat oven to 375.
Create a production line with one plate, rice, and beans. Lightly grease a skillet with Earth Balance and place over medium heat. Place one tortilla on the skillet, flipping after about 30 seconds, to soften. Place on plate. Scoop two heaping spoonfuls of beans into the center of the tortilla, lengthwise. Next, scoop two heaping spoonfuls of rice next to the beans. Tightly roll in the two sides of the tortilla so that the beans and rice remain in the center. Place seam down on the casserole dish. Repeat with the remainder of the tortillas. Spoon salsa over each burrito, completely covering the entire exposed side. Sprinkle cheese on top.
Cover casserole dish with aluminum foil and place in oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and plate with additonal toppings. Enjoy!
