Burrito bowls are one of our most favorite and frequent meals in our house because they’re so versatile, filling, tasty, and healthy. You can pretty much top rice and black beans with any vegetables you have on hand and top with some salsa and cilantro. This time I packed them with veggies that I had in the fridge, and I made a vegan ranch to drizzle on top. It was a little too sweet to taste like traditional ranch, but I thought it was a tasty mix with spicy salsa. It’s a meal that can come together in a few minutes and it actually fit the HCLF macros perfectly with 80/10/10. I made a huge pot of brown rice earlier in the week so all I had to do was chop the toppings and heat the beans. Fiesta in a bowl!
