  • 1 cup chopped red, yellow or orange pepper
  • 1 chopped red onion
  • 6-8 medium sized white mushrooms or button mushrooms
  • 2 medium zucchinis roughly chopped (larger chunks)
  • 1 can of pinto beans (can sub for kidney or black beans if desired)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup corn (optional)
  • 1 cup of uncooked brown parboiled rice
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 romaine hearts chopped into bite sized pieces (to form your salad base)
  • vegan cheese, cheese sauce or any other type of cheese you enjoy
  • 1 lime
  • 1 ripe avocado (mashed)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (for topping)


  1. Cook your rice in your instant pot, rice cooker, microwave or on the stove as it will take a while to cook.
  2. Chop the romaine hearts, 1 per bowl or how ever much chopped romaine fills up half your bowl as this is a very lean green burrito bowl (you will want to use a bowl that is larger than a cereal bowl, a shallow bowl more suited for buddha bowls and salads).
  3. Water-fry your chopped onions and minced garlic on medium-high heat until translucent and fragrant.  **See notes**
  4. Add in your red pepper and sauté in a small amount of water for a few minutes until tender.
  5. Wash your canned beans and add them into your pan.  Also add chopped mushrooms, zucchinis, corn, and spices.  Mix well.
  6. Allow burrito mixture a few minutes to cook together allowing flavours to combine.
  7. Mash 1 ripe avocado in small bowl or cup.
  8. Fill each burrito bowl with 1/2 cup to 1 cup of cooked rice at this time.  Add 1 to 2 cups of burrito mixture to each bowl.  Squeeze juice from 1/4 to 1/2 lime into your bowl.  Top with mashed avocado, chopped fresh parsley, and vegan cheese (if you are using any).
  9. Enjoy!

    **Water-fry**  Water-frying means to fry your food with water instead of oil.  Place 1/2 cup of water in the bottom of the non-stick pan or rock pan (non-stick or rock pans are best for this) and cook as usual.  This will allow your food to fry the same as usual without the greasiness and non-nutritious calories that oil provides.
