This easy burrito bowl is quick, nutritious and really tasty!
Although burritos are often quite meaty affairs, I’ve made this burrito bowl a veggie version, as I find it’s filling and satisfying enough without the meat.
If you feel your burrito bowl just isn’t the same without meat, you can easily add in some cooked chicken, or maybe some leftover pulled pork.
One of the things I love about burrito bowls, is that they almost feel like a mini buffet.
A selection of all of your favorites – you get to pick and choose whatever you feel like.
Today I was in the mood for some tangy feta cheese – I love the feta-avocado-roasted pepper combination!
Sometimes I’ll swap out the feta for shredded cheddar (works great with some added bacon bits!).
Keep a big bowl of it on standby in the refrigerator to work as a quick lunch, side salad for dinner or just something to graze on during the day.
If you’re short on time, use ready-cooked rice (I used a mixture of short grain and wild rice), then it’s just a case of chopping and arranging!
The chipotle drizzle is a simple mix of mayo, chipotle sauce and just a touch of water to make it more pour-able.
Super simple and super tasty!
