Ingredients
  • 1 15 oz can black beans
  • 8 oz frozen corn kernels
  • 2 cups instant brown rice
  • 12 oz jar Salsa (I like Trader Joe's Salsa Authentica, but use your favorite)
  • 1 red bell pepper (diced)
  • handful cilantro (chopped)
Creamy Avocado Dressing
  • 1 ripe avocado (smashed)
  • 1/3 cup vegan sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp non dairy milk to thin (if neccesary)
Instructions
For the Creamy Avocado Dressing:
  1. Combine all ingredients, except the non dairy milk, in a small bowl and stir well to combine. Add 1 tbsp non dairy milk at a time and stir until you reach your desired consistency. (I used 2 tbsp). Set aside.

For the Burrito Bowls:
  1. Cook the instant rice according to package directions (this usually takes about 5 -10 minutes depending on brand). When the rice is done, add to the same pot the black beans, corn, and salsa. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until heated through, about 5 minutes. Take off heat, add bell peppers and cilantro if using. Pour in Creamy Avocado Dressing and combine.

  2. Serve with tortilla chips or over chopped Romaine lettuce.
Recipe Notes

~To save an extra few minutes, start the rice first and make your dressing while the rice is cooking, then finish the rest of the recipe. Or you can skip the avocado dressing and just add chopped avocado for an ever easier and cheaper option.
