I don’t know about you, but for me I’m always up for a burrito!  This comforting vegan burrito recipe is made quickly and so easily.  Our ‘meaty’ filling is comprised of tempeh, onions, peppers, mushrooms, rice and some classic Mexican spices.  These burritos taste super delicious, and will satisfy any hungry belly!

Here’s how we make these simple and yummy burritos..  If you don’t have any cooked rice, then cook some up.  Chop up the tempeh and vegetables, and cook them with the spices, on a pan for about 5 minutes.

Then put the cooked food into a food processor, along with a chopped tomato (and some lime juice & cilantro if you like).  Pulse it for just a few seconds a couple of times until the texture is how you want it.

Return the pulsed food into a pan to cook for another 1-2 minutes before spreading it onto tortillas and adding any additional toppings.  We only added avocado, and they were SO GOOD!

You could also use the mixture as a base in tacos or bowls.  It would be amazing in a bowl with crushed tortilla chips, salsa, vegan sour cream, avocado, lettuce, olives, and cilantro!
