I love food that is simple to cook, clean and healthy, and exploding with flavours. I particularly like one-bowl meals.

Do you ever wonder which dish you would pick if you had to eat it for the rest of your life? If I had to pick just one meal to eat, it may as well be a burrito bowl. Easy! I realize this question is totally hypothetical, and that this is a fairly bold statement to make, but for a good reason. Today’s recipe will be a real treat, as this burrito bowl will have your taste buds craving more and your body thanking you for such a balanced, nourishing meal.

This dish is my go-to lunch lately. I love food in one bowl, so I thought it would only be fitting to share this recipe with you. Every bite is an explosion of flavours—primarily greens, spicy salsa, buttery guacamole, crunchy corn, and satisfying black beans topped with zesty lime juice! But perhaps the most wonderful thing is that you can add any of your favourite ingredients: vegetables, herbs, spices, or anything else you like! So here we are with a gluten-free, vegetarian, protein-packed meal that is simple, clean, and easy to prepare!
