whole-grain veggie burrito bowl

Happy Spring, y’all!

After a weekend of wine, eating with out friends, and pizza I was more than ready for meatless Monday.  This veggie-filled bowl starts with a base of brown rice.  The brown rice is sautéed with garlic and cumin for a smoky flavor.  On top of the rice, lots of toppings!

Let’s start with the tomato salsa!  In a bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, diced red onion, chopped cilantro, a little salt and diced jalapeño for some heat.

The black beans are simply canned beans that are only partly drained and chipotle chiles.  More smokiness, more heat.

And to cool it all off, creamy avocado and goat cheese plus a fresh squeeze of lime.

I adored this burrito bowl not only because of all the flavors but also all the different textures.  Every bite was different from the last bite.  My favorite bites included the tomato salsa and avocado.

Burrito bowl FTW.
