From the author, Toni Okamoto: My friend Michelle Salemi shared this sweet potato burritos recipe with me years ago. She originally made it as a filling for quesadillas, but since I no longer eat cheese, I decided to turn it into a burrito. If you’re into Daiya cheese, that might be pretty tasty, too.
From Plant-Based on a Budget: Burritos have become some sort of a universal language. Everywhere you go, you’ll always find a delicious burrito option and people who swear by them. Not only are they insanely delicious, but they can be prepared in so many different ways! From the classic bean and rice burrito to this amazing sweet potato burrito! I just can’t get enough.
The secret ingredient for this special burrito is the sweet potato, but the key is... to grate it. The fine slices of sweet potato caramelize while cooking and bring out the sweetness even more, while the spices give it a kick! You could also replace the sweet potato for grated butternut squash but they might not get as tender.
Grating veggies always makes them taste better and fit into dishes they might not normally fit into. Give it a try! You can grate cucumber and add it to your salads or grate some beetroot and add it to your favorite buddha bowls! It’s a great idea to add more veggies to your diet.
This sweet potato burrito would be a great option for a quick lunch on the go! Just prepare the filling the night before and assemble your burrito in the morning before heading out! Don’t forget to add a squeeze of lemon to the avocado to prevent it from getting brown!
