  • Summary

    This burrito bowl is a veggie-fied remix on the classic. Cauliflower rice fills in for brown/white rice, and it gets a hearty twist with the addition of black beans and a sprinkling of cilantro. Sautéed peppers and onions offer a tender bite and a substantial quality to this bowl. A quick pico de gallo offers eye-catching colors and brightness. A dollop of guacamole brings a bit of richness. And the final touch? A tangy plant-based sour cream made by blending raw sunflower seeds with water, fresh lemon juice, and sea salt. The sour cream weaves throughout the other elements and melds the flavors together.
