I used to love chipotle. It was the first place I went to after I got my license when I was 16. Almost every week for school, I would stop by on Thursdays and get a burrito bowl topped with everything I could possibly fit into that little tinfoil bowl. Unfortunately for me however, I was one of the victims of Chipotle’s e.coli incident. Let’s just say I didn’t return to a chipotle for many years after that.

In that time though, I did miss my hearty burrito bowls. I set out to make my own and quickly discovered how easy they were to make. Not to mention, a whole lot cheaper than a $15 bowl of mostly wilted romaine.


These vegan burrito bowls are cheap, easy, and customizable option. These vibrantly colored bowls are on a base of shredded cabbage and a cilantro lime cauliflower brown rice mix. I like the mix of cauliflower rice with regular rice for some added nutrients as well as volume. Feel free to use all cauliflower rice to make this lower carb, or all brown or white rice for a heartier option. This is topped with fresh vegetables like bell pepper, red onion, and corn. You can swap any of the vegetables out for what you have on hand though!


These vegan bowls are protein rich from the seasoned black beans. If you’re not a fan of beans though, you can swap them out for sofritas, smoked tofu, or grilled chicken if you’re not vegetarian.
