Preparation

To Make the Burrito Filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat casserole dish with oil to prevent burritos from sticking. (I don't recommend using parchment paper as they will stick to it
  2.  Place the brown rice and 1 cup of veggie broth in a small sauce pan. Place on stovetop and bring to a boil. Reduce and let simmer, adding water as needed to prevent rice from drying out.
  3. Place 1/4 cup veggie broth, garlic, onions and cumin in a large pot over medium-high heat for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and pepper to the pot and saute for 6 minutes, or until veggies are lightly cooked. Add additional veggie broth as needed.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of cilantro and great northern beans. Saute for about 2 minutes.
  6. Add 1/4 cup tomato sauce and nutritional yeast to pot and stir. Remove pot from heat.
  7. OPTIONAL: Remove about one third of contents from the pot and puree with a blender or hand-held immersion blender. Add pureed contents back to the pot.
  8. Add corn to the pot and stir.

To Make the Sauce:

  1. Combine 1 1/2 cup tomato sauce, garlic powder, cumin and cilantro together and mix well.

To Assemble the Burrito:

  1. Place 1 tortilla in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. Next, lay the tortilla on a plate and place ~1/2 cup burrito filling, ~1/4 cup rice, and ~1/8 cup diced avocados in the center of the tortilla.
  2. Roll the tortilla into a burrito tightly and place in the oiled casserole dish, seam down. Do the same with the next 5 burritos.
  3. Cover the 6 burritos with the tomato sauce and bake for 25 minutes.

Notes

If you're not a burrito fan, or would just prefer to forgo the tortilla, that's A-OK. The filling is amazing over a salad or just on its own. Or you can go taco-style with some corn tortillas. There's really no wrong way to enjoy this recipe.
