Nutrition Packed Burrito Night

Dinner can get a little overwhelming for me at times, so I like to have a bunch of ingredients in the fridge that I can pull together quickly for a nice dinner.  This meal is the perfect example of that!  It's incredibly filling, full of nutrients and delicious.  It's perfect when you just got home from a bike ride or yoga class, and you need a good meal.

The preparation is really simple, and in no time, you'll have a great dinner.

Nutrition Packed Burrito Night


1 sprouted grain tortilla
1/2 cup organic refried black beans
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
3 cups raw kale
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tbs nutritional yeast
1/2 jalapeno, chopped small
1/4 - 1/2 avocado
1 ear of corn, soaked in water with husk on

  • Preheat your oven to 350 d F.  
  • Take soaked corn husk and place inside oven directly on rack.
  • Cook for 30 minutes, then let cool for 10 minutes.
  • While corn is cooking, heat refried beans in a sauce pan and cook quinoa, unless you are using leftovers.  If left over, simply reheat in oven.
  • Heat a skillet on medium high.  
  • Add coconut oil.
  • Add in kale and nutritional yeast.  Saute until wilted, or about 15 minutes.
  • Once corn is cooled, remove husk.  It should pull off easily.
  • Assemble burrito:  tortilla, beans, quinoa, kale, jalapeno, then top with avocado.
  • Top corn with chili powder or a squirt of lime juice.  No oil or butter needed!
  • Wrap together and enjoy!

 I had to smash it all together before I could roll my burrito, and even then, the burrito had a hard time containing everything.  This was the first time I'd used the sprouted grain tortillas, and they were a little dense.  They weren't bad, though.

It's easy to make a bunch of these ingredients to make leftovers, or if you are feeding a family, it's great for multiple servings.  Burrito bars are great, because everyone can add different things they like.  This would be great with cashew cream, vegan cheese, or salsa on top!
