Easy Burrito Bowls

I finally made a burrito bowl at home. Well, I guess it’s more of a burrito plate. But still. Burrito bowl, burrito plate – I’m in love.IMG_7958edit2

No, but really, with fresh veggies and just 10 min prep with a creamy chipotle drizzle, what’s not to love?


Plus, this is completely customizable to add in your favorite proteins. Or if you’re like me, you can keep it vegetarian. There’s plenty of goodies to go around here!IMG_7887edit

And if you really want to go that extra step and make these even healthier, you can use quinoa in place of the rice.IMG_7921edit

You’ll get that extra kick of protein, and be full for hours on end! So who still wants Chipotle for dinner tonight?
