Best Burrito Bowl
1 medium red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 cup, packed and chopped kale
1 cup carrots, coarsely chopped
2 cans low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can low sodium diced tomatoes
1 cup salsa
3 tsp chile powder
1 tsp cumin
Combine onion, garlic, kale and carrots in a food processor and pulse until everything is chopped pretty small. In a large saute pan, cook the veggies in a few tablespoons of water until very tender, about 10 minutes.
Add the beans, tomatoes, salsa and spices and stir well to combine. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, giving it a stir every few minutes.
To assemble a Burrito Bowl:
Put some cooked brown rice in a bowl. Next, add the bean mixture. Top with fresh pico de gallo, tofu sour cream, and/or guacamole if desired.
