I love the easy straight-forward preparation in this veggie burrito recipe.

Tortillas: I used classic vegan flour tortillas in this recipe. You can use any type of tortilla that you have on hand.
Rice and Beans: You can use white or brown rice in this recipe and any type of bean that you have on hand.
I used black beans to make this a vegan black bean burrito recipe, pinto beans would also be delicious.
Roasted Vegetables: I roasted bell peppers, sweet potatoes, and red onions. I tossed them in olive oil and taco seasoning before roasting them for extra flavor.
Fresh Vegetables: The fresh veggies I used in this veggie burrito recipe are lettuce, avocado, jalapeños, cabbage, and cilantro.
Sauce and Seasoning: I used classic store-bough taco seasoning to make these vegetarian burritos. I find that it's super easy to use this premixed seasoning.
See recipe card below for quantities.
Start by washing and prepping all of your ingredients.
Then you'll toss the sweet potato, bell peppers, and red onion in olive oil and taco seasoning and next, roast them in the oven at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
While the veggies are roasting you can cook the rice and heat the beans on the stove top.
If you're starting with dried beans, check out this article about how to cook beans before getting started.
Once everything has been cooked and cooled slightly, assemble all of the ingredients in the tortillas to create your vegan and vegetarian burrito.
If you're using guacamole or a chipotle sauce to make a chipotle veggie burrito, add your topping of choice before wrapping the burrito up.
