What Is Vegan Burritos Made Of?
Vegan bean burritos are made of beans, rice, and corn (maize)!
Rice is a great addition to a balanced diet, especially if you use unprocessed brown rice and an Instant Pot for cooking. Rice carries many healthy properties such as essential carbohydrates and aids in increased energy.
Beans are super healthy, especially if rinsed and cooked in an Instant Pot. Protein is the main benefit that Beans have to offer; however, if you have issues with your digestion, you will want to choose lighter beans such as lentils instead of your standard kidney, black, or pinto beans.
Corn has many health benefits that people may not know of. Corn contains B vitamins, zinc, magnesium, copper, iron and manganese, and fiber. The fiber in the corn can help with your digestion and can aid in overall health.
What To Add To Vegan Bean Burritos
Vegan bean burritos can actually include many things in addition to beans, rice, and corn! You can simply add mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and don't forget to add cilantro and lime!
Adding mushrooms would be a delicious and healthy choice because they are full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as B6, iron, and potassium while being low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
