Chipotle style burrito bowls

Happy Friday everyone! Today is actually an extra special Friday because today is Cinco de mayo! And What better way to celebrate than with some healthy and delicious Mexican cuisine?

I love this recipe because it is loaded with tons of natural plant-based protein & carbs so it’ll keep you full and satisfied for hours. I like to use sprouted brown rice for this recipe for great flavour and texture, but plain brown rice or quinoa will work just as well.

This bowl is great made on the spot, but it’s also an amazing dish for meal prep! Simply layer all your ingredients in Tupperware or container and take this chipotle style burrito bowl on the go with you.
