 On to another KID-FRIENDLY VEGGIE HIDING MEAL – BEAN BURRITOS!

Mexican food in my house is a pretty good sell. I love it because the spices can run from mild to smoking hot! It’s entirely up to you. I find it best that children don’t have too many spices because they seem to steer away from bold flavors. Again, you know your family the best! I do know one thing, it is hard to get veggies into my little ones mouths! What is it? The color? The texture? That it’s actually good for you! I feel I have to fight this battle a lot, so this time I have added it to our burritos and disguised it with lots of love from cheese….yet again.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 cup organic vegetarian refried beans
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 onion: diced
  • 1 cup cauliflower: chopped
  • 1 carrot: peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup vegan cheese or shredded sharp cheese
  • 8 tortillas

Recipe:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Spray a 13×9 inch pan with cooking spray

3. Place cauliflower and carrot into blender and blend until forms crumbly pieces but not puree

4. In a large saucepan, add olive oil, onion and carrot mixture. Saute for a few minutes.

5. Add remaining ingredients and simmer.

6. Meanwhile, over medium heat place tortilla in a saute pan. Pan fry both sides 1-2 minutes.

7. Place bean mixture in middle of tortilla and fold sides in and wrap over, seams down. Place in prepared baking dish.

8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until tortilla is crispy. Serve with avocado or salsa.

 

Let’s just say they were all gone by the time I got back to the house. The kids thought it was a regular bean burrito, but they don’t know their mom very well yet! Ha!

    Anything kid friendly is very welcome in our house :) Thanks for sharing! This is a great idea. We’re struggling with balanced meals with our 4 year old son and we can’t wait to give this a try.
