Wild Rice Burrito Bowl + Creamy Avocado Dressing

I haven’t posted a savoury recipe on the blog since this Shredded Tofu Pasto Sandwich, more than a month ago. Since one of my blog goals was to share more lunch and dinner recipes, I figured it was high time I got started on that. So today, I decided to kick things off with this Vegan Wild Rice Burrito Bowl topped with Creamy Cilantro-Lime Avocado Dressing.

You may have noticed that I share mostly breakfast, snack and dessert recipes around here. I have a massive sweet tooth and love all things breakfast, so obviously I’m going to gravitate towards those foods. Plus, in my opinion, baking is a lot more fun than actual cooking.

So I get to make what I love, have fun while doing it and then actually get to eat it. I should be in foodie heaven, right? Not quite.

What actually happens, is that I end up eating the same thing over and over, day in day out until I get it right or decide to scrap the recipe. And as much as I love smoothies, muffins, cookies, oatmeal and the like, there’s only so much of them I can eat

Plus, I’m pretty sure my body occasionally needs some other nutrients, like the ones found in a wild rice burrito bowl, for example.

So, in an effort to actually eat some ‘real’ food, lunch and dinner recipes should be showing up a little more frequently around here. And obviously, I’m starting today with this wild rice burrito bowl, which, incidentally, was perfect on the first try. Oh, the irony.

Anyway, wanna know why I love burrito bowls? Cuz they’re super simple to make and so damn customizable. Don’t like lettuce? Use kale or spinach. Don’t like wild rice? I think it adds a little something to the dish, but you could totally use white or brown rice or even quinoa instead. Not a fan of refried beans? Skip ’em or just use regular black or pinto beans.

Hate avoc…okay now you’re just being ridiculous.

Avocados are actually the only things that are really essential to this burrito bowl because they’re key for the freakin-amazing Cilantro-Lime Avocado Dressing. It’s ridiculously creamy and combines avocado, olive oil, cilantro, almond milk, lime and a couple spices perfectly. Plus, it’s an awesome alternative for the usual dairy-filled, sour cream based burrito bowl dressings.

But even if you’re not sold on the wild rice burrito bowl, I highly recommend making the dressing and putting it on all the things.
