This post is sponsored by Minute® Ready to Serve Organics, and I’m so excited to share their latest products with you! When I get home from work, I’m hungry. As much as I love making dinner, sometimes I’m just ready to eat and I don’t want to spend a lot of time prepping, chopping, and cooking. That’s when I look for shortcuts. These burrito bowls only take a few minutes to throw together so you’ll have dinner ready in no time!
I’ve used Minute Ready to Serve rice before (try this stir fry recipe!) but I was really excited to find out that they now have a brown rice and quinoa blend! As much as I love quinoa, I don’t always think to make it ahead of time, so it’s nice to be able to have these microwaveable bowls for a quick and easy meal! They’re in single serving cups so it’s also great if you want to bulk up a leftover lunch or you’re making dinner for one! Honestly, one of these cups would be perfect topped with a fried egg and some avocado in the morning!
For this particular recipe, I used the Minute® Ready to Serve Organic Red Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic which is a blend of organic red quinoa and brown rice with a little garlic and onion. It is 100% whole grain, a good source of fiber and gluten free.Print
Quick and Easy Burrito Bowls with Avocado Lime Sauce
- 1 cup black beans
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 avocado
- Juice from 1 small lime
- 2 tbsp mayo (we used vegan mayo)
- 1/2 cup pico de gallo
- 2 Minute Brown Rice Instant Packs
- Handful of cilantro
- In a small pot, add the beans, cumin, oregano, and salt and bring to a bowl.
- Let the beans simmer for 5 minutes.
- In a small dish, mash the avocado and stir in the lime juice.
- Stir in the mayo and add a pinch of salt.
- Microwave the rice for 1 minute.
- Add the rice into the bottom of the bowl, top with beans and pico de gallo, then drizzle on the avocado sauce.
You could obviously add any of your favorite toppings to this. Cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc. I had mine with a little bit of the avocado lime sauce drizzled on top and that was all I needed! Of course, I scooped up some of my bowl with chips… because that’s the best part of a burrito bowl!
