Burrito Salad Bowl – ready in under 20 minutes
This burrito salad bowl is a personal favourite that I will often make for lunch when I am working from home.
It can be ready in under 20 minutes, and taking some time to step away from the computer and disengage can be really helpful for keeping the focus going through the rest of the afternoon.
If spending time in the kitchen at lunch isn’t an option for you, make a big batch at dinner. If you store the meat (or bean) mixture separately from the raw veggies and dressing, everything will stay nice and fresh.
Then just combine all the components at lunchtime and you’ll be done within minutes!
If you’re sensitive to certain ingredients, like onions and garlic, you can swap out the onion for the green top of a leek, and use garlic infused oil to still get that flavour.
Feel free to add components, like whatever you have in the fridge at the time. Maybe some avocado, some fresh herbs… this recipe is not one that has to be strictly followed.
