How to Make a Lentil Burrito Bowl
Mushroom Lentil Burrito BowlsCourse: MainDifficulty: Easy
This lentil burrito bowl recipe is the best plant-based lunch!
a few large handfuls of leafy greens, roughly chopped – I like romaine, arugula or spinach
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped leek or red onion
1 large clove of garlic, minced
4 button mushrooms, sliced
1 can of brown lentils, rinsed
Around 2 tbsp taco seasoning mix, I like the Simply Organic one or use a mix of cumin, paprika, chili powder and garlic powder
Spices: a dash of smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper
1 tomato, chopped into small cubes
1 red bell pepper, chopped into small cubes
the juice of 1 lime
1 handful roughly chopped cilantro
1 avocado, halved and sliced
a drizzle of tahini
- In a hot pan with the olive oil, sauté the leeks until fragrant and soft. Add the garlic, mushrooms, spices and the lentils and sauté for another few minutes.
- In two bowls, divide the greens and lentil mix evenly.
- In a small bowl, combine the tomato, bell pepper, lime and cilantro to make a “salsa”. Divide the salsa onto the two bowls and then add the avocado slices.
- Top with more salt and pepper and drizzle in tahini. Enjoy!
