How to make delicious veggie burritos

How to make delicious veggie burritos

Making dinner after a long day isn't always what we look forward to the most, especially if the fridge is empty. I totally get that and I am often tempted to take shortcuts and order crappy pizza that makes me feel like a whale afterwards! Shortcuts are so often not worth it. But of course there are exceptions, sometimes we just need to let ourselves go and become whales that devour whole pizzaz and chocolate like we are feeding for the next 4 months. But normally that's not the case and that's why I love easy, fast and healthy recipes that only make me feel like a baby whale...that is awesome and in super good shape. (I think the whale and dolphin documentaries on Netflix have had more effect on me than I realized). 

We’ve been making veggie burritos very often lately and they have quickly become one of our favorite dinners to make. Today we decided to make delicious guacamole and fried vegetables, but we bought ready made whole flower tortillas, chunky salsa and chickpeas for our Mexican fiesta.

So here’s what you need:

- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 red onion (regular works fine as well)
- 1-2 teaspoons of lime/lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper (we like it spicy)
- 2 tablespoons cilantro (coriander for us scandinavians)
- A dash of freshly grated pepper
- 1/2 ripe chopped tomato

Mix and “voila”

Fried veggies:
Here we like to mix it up and we rarely use the same vegetables, but this is what we used today.
- 1 bell pepper
- 1/2 broccoli head
- 1/2 big red onion
- 4 garlic cloves 
- 8 small mushrooms

We cut the veggies into desired size, then fry on a pan on medium heat for 3-5 minutes and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

We also add fresh lettuce, rucola, spinach and chickpeas when we assemble our burrito.

There you have it! A healthy, fast and easy to do veggie burrito that will make both your face and body smile. Now who’s a happy, healthy baby whale? You are!
