Take-out Fake-out Chipotle Burrito Bowl

Want to eat Chipotle Mexican Grill without having to go out and order it? Try my #chefdux Cheezy Beans and Greens Veggie Burrito Bowl. I made this recipe myself from scratch because I wanted to take a shot at making a healthy burrito bowl without all the carbs, cheese, and tortillas/chips we typically eat when we go to Chipotle. My intention is to prove that it is possible to eat healthily and crowd out the unhealthy foods while still maintaining flavor. My nomtastic recipe is as

The Veggies/Beans

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped fajita style
  • 1 red pepper, chopped in long strips
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed
  • 1 can of pinto beans
  • greens on greens on greens (I used spinach and collard greens, but feel free to use as
  • much of these as you'd like and which ever greens you like
  • 1 bag of Trader Joe's frozen cauli rice (or rice one head of cauliflower yourself by cutting it into florets and blending them on low)
  • top with cilantro and guacamole

The Sauce

  • 6 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • salt + pepper
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 4 tbsp of nutritional yeast (feel free to add more or less depending on how much you want)
  • 1/4 cup of salsa

To Prepare:
1. Chop your veggies and put them in a pan with some EVOO. Saute until all of the veggies are nice and soft
2. Saute the cauli rice until it's soft in a separate pan and set aside when it's done
3. Add your pinto beans and continue to saute for another 5 minutes
4. Add your greens and saute until they wilt
5. Add the cooked cauli rice to your main pan
6. Stir all ingredients of the sauce together
7. Top with guacamole (I used wholly guacamole for time's sake) and cilantro
8. Enjoy your delicious homemade veggie bowl
