Qmee Recipes – Bean burritos
Our recipe this week is for vegan burritos. In the UK, January is considered by some to also be ‘Veganuary’. This is an annual charity challenge that involved 580,000 people in 2021. The challenge involves people trying to not use or consume any animal sourced products for the duration of January. There are many reasons people get involved with this challenge, such as for health, environmental, or animal welfare reasons.
Whatever the reason, we’ve got you covered! This delicious combination of chipotle black beans and lime and red onion rice will make eating plant-based seem a breeze!
What you’ll need…
4 large or 8 small tortilla wraps
2 large handfuls spinach leaves, shredded
1 avocado, thinly sliced (optional)
hot sauce, to serve
For the chipotle black beans…
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp oil
2 cups black beans, drained
1 tbsp chipotle paste
bunch of coriander, chopped
For the lime and red onion rice…
1 cup wholegrain rice, cooked and drained
1 lime, juiced
½ red onion, very finely chopped
⅓ cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
To make the burritos…
-Heat the oil in a pan and fry the garlic for a minute, then stir in the chipotle paste.
-Tip in the tomatoes, stir and bring to a simmer.
-Season with salt.
-Simmer until thick, add the beans and cook briefly (make sure any water gets cooked off), then stir in the coriander.
-If you are using cold cooked rice, then warm it through, stir in the lime juice, red onion and nuts and season well.
-Lay out the tortillas and sprinkle over some spinach.
-Add some avocado slices and some rice, then top with the bean mix.
-Add a shake of hot sauce to taste.
-Roll the bottom up, then fold the sides in to stop the filling falling out as you roll.
-Wrap tightly in foil, if you like, and cut in half.
