Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • knife set

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 red or green bell pepper sliced
  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 10 ounces of frozen or cooked butternut squash cubes
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 flour burrito-size tortillas warmed

  • 1 large avocado pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • Cilantro (optional)
  • Salsa or hot sauce (optional)

Instructions
 

  • In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil and saute the onion and bell pepper for 3 minutes. Add garlic, butternut squash, and cumin and saute for 5 minutes, or until all the veggies are tender and the butternut squash is cooked all the way through.
  • Lay out your tortillas and add half of the butternut squash and veggie mixture to each tortilla.
  • Add a dollop of beans and avocado sliced to each tortilla, and add any other burrito fixings. Roll tightly into a burrito.

Notes

  • For a crispy burrito: After wrapping the butternut squash burrito, pan-fry it in a dry pan for a minute or two on both sides OR use a panini press. As a bonus, this helps to seal the vegan burritos, too.
  • Adjust the black bean texture: You can use whole black beans, refried beans, or lightly mash some of the black beans to your desired in-between texture. You can add the beans to a saucepan with a splash of coconut milk or vegetable stock for slightly soupier black beans. Add spices to taste (cumin, paprika, chili powder).
