Lentil and Plantain Vegetarian Burrito
Hope everyone is doing well during this unusual time. I don’t know about you, but we’ve had some extra time to cook at home recently. After a week of self-quarantine, we were in the mood for something to spice things up. So, we made this vegetarian burrito recipe with delightful flavors packed into the filling.
A fun twist on a typical taco night, this recipe changes up the usual ground beef and cheddar tacos that adorn families tables on Tuesday nights. We modified the recipe featured in chef Shay’s original video, so feel free to take similar liberties finishing your taco. For example, you can finish with a dollop of créme fraîche or some fresh baby kale. This is one of our go to favorites when we need a guilt free Mexican fix.
If you’re a bit skeptical, I understand. The first time the chef said he was making a lentil and plantain burrito, I was certain it was going to be unappetizing. But, I was pleasantly surprised by this sweet and spicy vegetarian burrito. They are so delicious, and pretty easy to make at home!
