Say hello to this healthy, no-fuss meal that takes a mind-blowing 15 minutes to make and is so so delicious. This burrito bowl came about when I had next to nothing in my fridge or pantry, but was still determined to make something delicious out of the little ingredients I had. So I took out a can of black beans, frozen corn, peppers, and Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dressing. And now here we are. 

This vegan burrito bowl is so easy to make and great for weekly meal prep!

This veggie burrito bowl is made with a handful of simple pantry ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

Best Veggies to Use

Loading up your burrito bowl with vegetables is the best way to get flavor and protein. My favorites to use are sautéed peppers, frozen fire roasted corn, black beans or white beans, and lettuce/greens. Use toppings like chopped tomatoes, avocado slices, and cilantro for flavor.
