Vegan Roasted Cauliflower Burrito Bowl

Roasted cauliflower burrito bowl

This Vegan Burrito Bowl is loaded with Brown rice, Roasted cauliflower, Pico De Gallo, Sweet corn, Avocado, and a good lime drench. They are filling, delicious but not heavy at all. 

What I really love about Burrito bowls/Buddha bowls is that they are versatile, colourful, healthy, and nutritious. This recipe is very easy to put together, however a little extra time is taken in prepping the veggies.

A typical burrito bowl consists of a Grain, raw vegetables, legumes, cooked vegetables, and an optional sauce. Prep all the elements and store it in the fridge in advance, if you want to meal prep for lunch/dinner for the week.
