Vegan Chorizo Black Bean Burrito Bowl, Make it Mexican

Vegan Chorizo Black Bean Burrito Bowl, Make it Mexican

#MeatlessMonday: Make it Mexican

Vegan Mexican style chorizo burrito bowls are an easy healthy weeknight one bowl meal. For best results make the mushroom walnut chorizo a day in advance so the spicy chorizo seasonings can develop. Save leftover chorizo for tacos, stuffed sweet potatoes or tostadas. You can purchase soy chorizo but I prefer making my own without soy. I’m sensitive to soy so I try to avoid it. I’ve seen lentil and quinoa taco meat recipes which would also work well.

I used black beans but any legume would be fabulous in this burrito bowl. I prefer to cook my own beans besides you don’t find many canned beans in rural Mexico. Dried pinto and back beans are a great vegan protein source and they are readily available and so inexpensive. Many homes keep a pot of pinto beans stewing on the stove all week long for quick snacks or meals. I make vegetarian pinto beans in my crockpot almost every week. If you are a vegan and you eat out in Mexico you shouldn’t assume that the beans are animal free. I suspect lard is added to most frijoles so make your own and be certain. If I want refried frijoles, I use olive oil.

Sauté any vegetables for your burrito bowl. I had bell peppers, onions, avocado, jalapeño and fresh tomatoes. I occasionally make a large batch of brown or white rice to have ready for weeknight meals.

I’m not sure that this warrants a recipe card but here it is Google search engine. 🤔
