The Greatest Burrito In The World!

The T H Supreme Vegetarian Burrito

Recipe created by Missy Costello of Karma Chow

1 Red Bell Pepper, sliced into thin strips

1 Green or Yellow Bell Pepper, sliced into thin strips

1 Vidalla Onion or Maui Onion, sliced thinly

1 cup dry Quinoa or Brown rice, cooked

2 cups water

½ small red onion, diced

1 - 15oz. can Organic Black Bean

½ c. Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes

3 tsp ground cumin

1 TBL Chili Powder (Mexican style blend)

1 tsp Sea Salt

Pepper to taste

2 TBL. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

1 Pkg. Sprouted or Whole Wheat Tortillas

Extras (optional):


Cheese (preferably non-dairy)


Tempeh Bacon (if you are using this, put it inside the burrito before rolling)

To Prepare:

Rinse quinoa or brown rice, and prepare according to package directions.

While quinoa/rice is cooking, heat 1 TBL of the Olive oil in a large skillet.  Add peppers & onions and sauté until soft – about 3-5 minutes. Add 2 tsp. cumin, Chili Powder, ½ tsp. sea salt and continue cooking for 2 more minutes, stirring to incorporate all the spices with the peppers & onions. Add Tomatoes and stir to mix. Lower heat and cover, cooking for about 5 minutes until peppers are really soft.

To prepare beans, heat remaining TBL of olive oil in a saucepan and add red onion. Saute the onion until soft. Add remaining 1 tsp of cumin and ½ tsp. salt, stir together. Add black beans and stir to incorporate all ingredients. Let cook for 1-2 minutes longer until beans are heated through. Add 1 cup of cooked quinoa or rice to the beans and stir together. Season with fresh ground pepper and remove from heat.

To Assemble:

Heat Tortilla shell over low open flame on stove to soften. Place the tortilla on a flat surface. Spread a very small amount of grated cheese over entire tortilla. Add 1 scoop of pepper & onion mixture to bottom 1/3 of tortilla. Top with 1 scoop of quinoa/bean mixture. Add avocado (optional) and Roll!!!

Enjoy your burrito topped with heart healthy Salsa or a bit of guacamole!!

Makes 6-8 Burritos
