Happy August!! I know literally everybody says this, but where the heck is the time going?! Maybe that’s part of being an adult, you just constantly proclaim how quickly time is going by.

But seriously, summer is already halfway gone and I feel like it just started! Hopefully you’ve all been getting your favorite summery sweets in accordingly.

Between all the ice cream and fruity summer treats, there’s room for vegan burrito bowls, right? I mean, I guess we have to eat something savory now and then, cause ya know, dinner. Not that I’d be against dinner being sweet, but that’s a conversation for another day. Plus, these burrito bowls are sooo good that I’m okay with straying from the normal sweet path around here!

So vegan burrito bowls couldn’t be simpler, and most of the choices are totally up to you, making them even easier. Start with the base – for this one I used riced cauliflower, but frequently use quinoa as well. Go with whatever whole grain or veg base you like!

Next, we’ll quickly sauté some veg. No need for oil! Simply use a little vegetable stock or whatever if anything sticks. I like to use some bell peppers, onion, corn, and jalapeño, cause if we have the option to make something spicy around here, we do it.

Top your whole grain or cauliflower rice base with plenty of greens, the sautéed veg, beans of your choice, and some salsa! Oh, and don’t forget the guacamole, and cilantro, unless of course you have that horrible gene that makes it taste like soap. If that’s you, I’m so, so sorry.

That’s it! Told you this was easy peasy. This dinner is SO FAST and easy, literally the only work involved is sautéing vegetables which takes maybe 15 minutes, tops. It’s so satisfying, healthy, and the flavor combinations are so, so yum. This has been in our regular dinner rotation for awhile now, and it never gets old.

Hope you guys like this one as much as we do!
