  • Summary

    This Easy Vegan Mexican Burrito Bowl has the flavors mixed of a burrito and taco. It is vegan, dairy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and made with corn tortillas, black beans, rice, salsa and homemade vegan queso cheese sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
    • 2 3/4-3 cups water (use 2 3/4 for fluffy rice and 3 if you prefer yours more sticky)
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 8 corn tortillas, cut into 4ths (I use Food For Life Sprouted in the frozen section, only ingredients is corn, water,salt & lime) OR just use storebought or omit if not eating tortillas b/c of diet
    • Two 15 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/4 cup mild salsa (I wouldn't use a spicy one or it will make the bowl too spicy)
    • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt (if your beans have added salt, use 1/4 teaspoon, if no salt, then use 1/2)
    • 2 cups sweet corn (I love Trader Joes)
    • Extra salsa for assembly or instead, use the Enchilada sauce for an Enchilada style bowl
    • Optional: shredded lettuce (I like a fresh green in my mexican food, but it's not crucial for flavor)
    • 3/4 cup raw cashews (108 g, soaked overnight in water if you don't have a high-powered blender)
    • 3/4 cup salsa (I used Trader Joes medium heat, this makes it spicy, if you don't want it too spicy, use a mild salsa)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 6 tablespoons nutritional yeast (36 g, I use this yeast , which is milder/better flavor & non-fortified, no nasty vitamin taste)
    • 2-3 teaspoons ground cumin (If you are unsure, start out with 2, blend and taste. I used the FULL 3 teaspoons and absolutely loved the smoky taste, but start with less if you like)
    • 1/2 teaspoon + 1/16 teaspoon fine sea salt (weird amount, but what I found to be just right)
