Easy Burrito Bowls

This is sort of like the bowls you can get at Chipotle or some of the other restaurants these days. You could add fresh or pickled jalapenos or some raw chopped onion. This is a very flexible dish. I loaded up leftovers for work the next day.
For the bowls:

  • 1 cup uncooked rice (I used basamati)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 3 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped

For the chipotle cream sauce:

  • 1 cup vegan sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle peppers, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Make the chipotle cream sauce: whisk all ingredients together; set aside.

Cook rice according to package directions; let cool.

Stir in the salsa; set aside.

To assemble the bowls: divide rice among bowls.

Top rice with Romaine.

Add black beans.

Top with corn.

Next add your tomatoes.

Toss on the avocado.

Garnish with cilantro leaves.

Drizzle with chipotle cream sauce.
