This week my burrito in a bowl recipe includes some steamed broccoli, leftover baked winter squash, fresh cilantro & scallions from my garden, and avocados sent from a friend in Southern California. A note on winter burrito in a bowl...Salsa: since tomatoes are not in season and therefore no fresh salsa...during the winter I use canned salsa that I find in the Hispanic food isle of my market.

Burrito In A Bowl with Winter Squash & Broccoli
First, is this meal for you or more?
Second, get the appropriate sized "big bowl"
Third, ingredients...(these measurements are purely approximate)
1/2 cup cooked organic short-grain brown rice
1/2 cup vegetarian refried beans
1/2 cup shredded organic cheddar cheese
1/2 cup salsa
I throw all that in my bowl and microwave it until until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Then I add to the bowl:
1/2 cup cubed cooked winter squash (butternut, delicata, acorn...)
some steamed broccoli spears
I top it off with:
a ripe avocado, sliced or diced
a spoonful of organic lowfat sour cream
a handful of chopped cilantro and scallions, fresh from my garden
Mix it all up or leave it orderly--either way eat while warm. Mmmmmmm... Yeah, any way you mix it, burrito in a bowl rules!
