Quarantine Eats: Cauli-Rice Veggie Burrito Bowl

I’m not going to lie…I was missing my go-to fast-food Mexican spots like Illegal Pete’s (my fav) and Chipotle (Matthew’s fav) when whole quarantine started.

But when I realized that I can make my own healthy versions of my favorite burrito bowls, I wasn’t missing them so much anymore.

I love burrito bowls because you can make them your own with all of your favorite ingredients.
Here’s my version of a super easy healthy veggie burrito bowl:

  • Frozen cauliflower rice
  • Canned Black Beans
  • 1/4 of an Onion
  • Fajita veggies (frozen from the store or create your own!)
  • A handful of Spinach
  • Protein of choice (I used Quorn Meatless Steak-Style Strips)
  • Cheese of choice (optional)
  • Avocado (optional)

& here’s how easy it is to make:

  1. Chop up the onion and start grilling the pieces in a pan over medium heat
  2. Add the fajita veggies, Quorn steak strips, cauliflower rice, and black beans
  3. Simmer and mix for a few minutes
  4. Add spinach to a bowl
  5. Top the spinach with your steaming burrito mixture
  6. Enjoy with cheese & an avocado on top!

I love using chips as my fork to scoop up my burrito bowl (highly recommend the Late July Chia & Quinoa Chips or the Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips from Trader Joe’s). Then, I add salsa and as much spice as I like to enjoy with it – it’s like nachos with the perfect amount of deliciousness on each bite!

What do you like to put in your burrito bowls?

frugal & free,
