Vegan Burritos

Burritos are one of the most popular Mexican fast food. This version is packed with good carbs, healthy fats and plant-based protein, and therefore a super healthy alternative without compromising on taste. Use wholegrain rice and/or tortilla wraps to increase your fibre intake.

Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time: 30 mins

Total Time: 50 mins

Servings: 4 people

Portions: 8 burritos



Tomato rice:

225 g rice

2 tbsp tomato paste

4 tsp chipotle paste

2 tsp smoked paprika powder

5 spring onions

2 garlic cloves

1 tsp lime zest

1 tbsp lime juice



Black bean chilli:

1 garlic clove

1/2 red onion

1 tin black beans

150 g sweet corn

1 red pepper

1 tin tomato cubes

3 tsp dried oregano

3 tsp paprika powder

2 tsp cumin




2 ripe avocados

1 garlic clove

2 tomatoes

1 lime (juice)

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika powder



8 tortilla wraps

200 g vegan crème fraiche

vegan cheese (optional)



1. First make the black bean chilli: finely chop the garlic and red onion. Cut the paprika into small cubes. Heat some olive oil in a small pan and fry the vegetables for 5 minutes. Add the spices and fry for another minute. Then, add the black beans, sweet corn and tomato cubes. Let simmer for at least 25 minutes. Season to perfection with salt and pepper.

2. Prepare the tomato rice: finely chop the spring onion and garlic. Heat some olive oil in a pot and fry the vegetables for 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chipotle paste and smoked paprika powder, and fry for another minute. Last, add the rice and double the volume of water, and let simmer covered for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let soak for another 5 minutes. Add the lime juice and zest, and season to perfection with salt and pepper.

3. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Use a fork to smash the avocadoes. Finely chop the garlic and cut the tomatoes in very small cubes. Add both as well as the spice and lime juice to the smashed avocadoes. If you want to make the guacamole, you can add 2 tbsp of natural yoghurt to it.

4. Last assemble the burritos: Heat the tortilla wrap according to instructions. Cover the wrap tomato rice, black bean chilli, a generous serving of guacamole, crème fraiche and some vegan cheese if desired. Wrap it up.
