Meatless Monday: Cilantro Lime Quinoa Collard Green Burritos


Cilantro Lime Quinoa Collard Green Burrito

 This week’s Meatless Monday meal is brought to you by my craving for a healthy burrito.  I am not sure the last time I had a burrito though I vaguely remember a stop at Burrito House the last time I was in Chicago for a girls weekend and I may or may not have shoved the entire baby size Mexican bundle down my throat in less than 30 seconds…that story is for another time though.

Back to this burrito which is not only loads healthier than any burrito you can buy at 2 AM on the streets of Chi-Town but also vegan.  Plus it has sriracha and sriracha automatically makes anything delicious. Right? 

Right.  This is also especially delicious because  stuffed with super yummy cilantro lime quinoa with black beans, fresh diced tomatoes and avocado then topped with the special sriracha hummus.  

Oh and I know you’re wondering why all my photos are of the burrito pre-wrapped…it’s simply because it just looked prettier before I rolled it up. And I’m bad at rolling…I’m more skilled at shoving my face with food as we have already established.Collard Green Burrito Cilantro Lime Collard Green Burrito
