Last week, when my boyfriend and I made all the mediterranean food, I was creating a shopping list and I realized how all the dishes were made up of predominatly all the same ingredients. Chickpeas, parsley, oregano, garlic, lemon, onion and olive oil were in almost everything we were making. He then said, “its the same with Mexican food too. And well…, most ethnic cuisines.” I realized he was right. This might not seem like a profound revealation but I guess I just hadn’t thought about it before. When I was buying ingredients for this burrito bowl, I realized cilantro, lime, garlic, paprika or cayenne, cumin, onion, beans, and avocado make up so many of the dishes I love from Mexian restaurants. It streamlines things for sure and I realized how there are just certian combination of ingredients that work and now matter how you combine them together you will (most of the time) end up with something that tastes good. So on to this bowl, I adapted the recipe from Claire at The Kitchy Kitchen, one of my favorite bloggers- and it is so good. I have never made a bad recipe from her blog, they all turn out great. If you did not know, now you know. This recipe serves four people and is super easy to make and so fulling, even your meat eating friends will enjoy it. I decided to make it paleo friendly by substituing actual rice for cauliflower rice and you can find the recipe here but you are welcome to use real rice if you want.
