Veggie Burrito

Sharing is caring!

I often refer to my veggie burritos as an easy lunch or a back up meal. It occurred to me that some of you may think I make a really elaborate thing. Trust me, this is not the case. I don’t really do elaborate these days. This Veggie Burrito recipe is as easy as they come.

The basic Veggie Burrito can be made with whatever you have on hand. This plant-based (vegan) recipe is quick and easy to make.

I wanted to show you just how easy this basic veggie burrito is. I’ll also point out that when I refer to an easy black bean salad it is basically this burrito with extra lettuce and no tortilla.

I make it when I have beans already cooked but I’ve been known to use canned beans on occasion.

Basic Veggie Burrito


  • 1 tortilla per burrito
  • lettuce
  • cooked black beans
  • diced tomatoes
  • frozen corn
  • salsa
  • guacamole


  1. Heat beans and corn (and anything else you want hot).
  2. Layer all ingredients into a burrito (or ditch the tortilla and put everything on a bed of lettuce).

This is a quick and easy meal and can be made using whatever you have on hand. If you have potatoes, peppers or rice use them, if you are missing tomatoes or guacamole that’s ok. Use what you have.

  1. We tried this tonight. I threw salsa in with the rinsed beans and frozen corn to give it some liquid while heating. Made guac with avacado, lime, and garlic salt. Added cilantro and green onions that I cut with scissors, and added baby spinach instead of lettuce, and whole cherry tomatoes. My goal was to prep as little as possible because I had active toddlers running around and needed to be fast! I admit I was skeptical how good this would be without cheese or greek yogurt/sour cream, but we gave it a try, and we were pleasantly surprised! It was much more satisfying than either of us expected. We will definitely be making again!

    • WOO HOO! I love to hear that. It seems so simple and plain but it really is good and such a time saver when you have little ones running around.

    Hi! Are these tortillas gluten free? Which ones do you recommend?

    • The tortillas associated with this recipe are not buy some of my other recipes are. We usually just try the most affordable tortillas we can find and don’t have a specific brand we stick to.
