Healthy Veggie Burritos

Healthy Veggie Burritos

It’s actually quite easy to make veggie versions of your favourite foods, all it takes is a bit of creativity and a few spices! I almost never use recipes so I have to keep reminding myself to write these meals down but luckily for you, I just ate this so I remember it well..mmmm.  I wasn’t sure where this dinner was going to go but it turned out really tasty. Even the hubs called it a treat! I love Mexican food, almost as much as Thai food, so this Mexi-inspired vegetarian burrito really hit the spot!

I didn’t use the best wraps for this, I would recommend using a better quality, less processed wrap if you can get your hands on some. I’ve typically use organic Ezekiel sprouted grain wraps, but these were awesome but these were all I had today. Feel free to use your choice of cheese or omit it all together. I used soy cheese in this today, which I almost never eat but I really wanted something cheesy and melty for that extra comfort-food ooomph. I know a lot of people rave about Daiya cheese but I bought it once and found it terrible, I actually had to spit it out. Did I just have a bad bag or something?? Are you a fan of Daiya?

This healthy veggie burrito is very filling and easy to make with simple ingredients, making it a perfect weeknight dinner. Try varying the toppings, you could add grated carrot, sprouts, fresh tomato, whatever you like! Enjoy!
