Easy Lentil Burritos

Looking for a new lunch or dinner idea? I have the quickest, easiest, tastiest, and no cooking required recipe for you! I whipped up this recipe on a “study break”, and as you can probably imagine my brain wasn’t all there by that point. 😉 That’s how easy it is! Lentils are awesome because they absorb whatever spices or seasonings you’re using so they taste great! They’re also a good source of protein, fibre, folate, many minerals, and B-vitamins which us vegans always welcome. These burritos are a good lunch option for work or school and since they’re protein and fibre loaded they will definitely keep you full all afternoon.

  1. Combine half of the lentils and the remaining filling ingredients into a food processor. Puree until ingredients are well mixed but still a little chunky. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a few times
  2. Transfer the pureed mixture into a bowl and stir in the remaining lentils
  3. For the avocado sour cream, combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth

Enjoy!
