Vegetarian Burrito Bowl

I have been on this veggie bowl kick lately. I can’t get enough of them! This one was okay, but it was kind of bland. The beans were bland and so was the rice. I prefer this bowl or this one instead.

Vegetarian Burrito Bowl

serves 4


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup basmati rice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 15.5-oz. cans black beans, drained, rinsed
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 avocado, pitted, peeled, diced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen, thawed if frozen
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
Sour cream, shredded Cheddar, cilantro leaves, sliced radishes, chopped pickled jalapeños, and tortilla chips, optional


1. Warm 1 Tbsp. oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add rice and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups water and 1/2 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

2. Warm remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in 1/2 cup water, beans, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a simmer and cook until most of liquid has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring once or twice. Season lightly with salt.

3. Combine avocados and lime juice in a medium bowl. Divide rice among 4 bowls. Top with bean mixture, corn, tomatoes and avocados. Serve with garnishes and chips on the side, if desired.
