Vegan Fat-Free Smashed Sweet Potato Burrito

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Recipe

This burrito is an ode to my favorite dish at Candle Cafe, the Paradise Casserole. Leftover grains and/or a leftover sweet potato make this a particularly fast dish to whip up, but starting from scratch will still have dinner ready in less than 30 minutes.

You can substitute any grains, greens or beans you have on hand.



Cook spinach according to directions, pressing out any excess water once fully cooked. Sprinkle spinach with garlic powder and salt and set aside. Sprinkle cumin, onion powder and garlic powder over black beans, stirring to evenly coat beans with spices and set aside. Sprinkle mashed sweet potato with cinnamon and stir to combine. Then combine sweet potato mixture, spinach mixture, grains and black beans in a large bowl, stirring to evenly incorporate, and scoop mixture into the center of the shell. Drizzle with hot sauce if desired.
