Ingredients

Cauliflower Rice

  • 1 head of cauliflower cut into small florets (or 6 cups riced)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • ¼ cup taco seasoning

Burritos

  • 12 large tortillas
  • 19 oz can of black beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups shredded cheese mozza, cheddar, monterey jack all work
  • 16 oz jar of salsa

Other toppings

  • avocado slices
  • sour cream or greek yogurt

Instructions

  • To rice your cauliflower, either use a box grater, or pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor until uniform and fine.
  • Heat oil in a large pan and cook the onions and bell pepper until soft, roughly 5 minutes.
  • Add the cauliflower rice and taco seasoning and cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously so everything is coated in the seasoning.
  • When cauliflower rice is slightly soft (not mushy), remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  • Assemble burritos: roughly ½ cup of the cauliflower rice mixture, topped with 2 spoonfuls of black beans, 2 spoons of salsa and ⅓ cup of shredded cheese.
  • Roll and wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
  • Storage:Store wrapped in plastic and in a storage container or large freezer bag. They are good in the fridge for 2-3 days and the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • To Re-heat:Unwrap and heat in the microwave on a paper towel in 30 second increments, flipping each time, until heated through. Crisp up in a frying or grill pan, or on a George Foreman grill.

Notes

After thawing, these burritos can release a bit of water, and are best crisped up on a sandwich press/indoor grill/frying pan.
