Here's a healthier take on a Mexican burrito - a burrito-inspired grain bowl! Hearty, protein-packed and flavourful, perfect to take on a busy weekday.
1 cup The Little Rice Company brown rice, freshly cooked
1/2 cup black beans (able to use canned) or black lentils
1/2 a bell pepper, sliced
1 small avocado
1/2 cup edamame, shelled
1 tomato, chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
If using raw beans or lentils, boil until tender.
Meanwhile, mix tomatoes with lime juice, honey and minced garlic. Set aside in fridge for 30 minutes if possible.
Heat a pan, add oil. Stir fry bell pepper and beans or lentils until warmed through. Add paprika and salt.
Mash avocado and season with salt and pepper.
Assemble bowl: Dish rice into 2 bowls, top each with seasoned tomatoes, beans/lentils and peppers and avocado.
