A stack of burritos on a plate



  • 300 grams white rice, rinsed and drained
  • 720 millilitre water
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 30 grams coriander

Hash browns & onions

  • 8 small red potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 – 4 tablespoons vegan butter or vegetable oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Black beans

  • 370 grams black beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • garlic powder
  • chilli powder

Avocado Slaw

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 180 grams of purple cabbage
  • green cabbage or radish
  • thinly sliced 2 jalapenos, seeds removed, thinly sliced


  • 4 large vegan flour tortillas
  • Salsa (optional)


  1. Add the rice and water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15-20minutes until all water is absorbed and the rice is fluffy.
  2. As the rice is cooking, heat a saucepan to medium heat and add the vegan butter. Chop potatoes into small pieces and onions into small rings. Add these to the sauce pan, season with salt and pepper and then cover. Cook these for 5 minutes before flipping and cooking for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the beans to a saucepan over medium heat and season with cumin, garlic powder, and chilli powder. When bubbly, reduce the heat to low to keep warm.
  4. To make the slaw, mash together the avocado and lime juice, then add the cabbage and jalapeno and toss to combine. Season with a pinch of salt and set aside.
  5. To the cooked rice, add the juice of one lime and the coriander. Toss to combine.
  6. To soften the tortillas, warm in the microwave for 30 seconds or in a 180 °C oven for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add the fillings in any order. Roll up, slice in half and serve. Serve any extra potatoes, black beans or rice on the side along with salsa or additional avocado.
