One thing I couldn’t figure out in the last 5 years is how to eat overstuffed sandwiches or wraps. I become very clumsy and self conscious when eating these big size sandwiches. I see myself constantly looking around to find any occasional giggles or stares. I figured the best thing to do is stay away from them in public places (make them to-go and eat at home or desk).

So you can imagine my ecstasy when I found this bare-burrito on Baja Fresh menu. All the ingredients in a burrito layered in a bowl instead of wrapping in a tortilla. This is my entry to Sweet nicks ARF/ 5-a-day Tuesday event. My first ever entry into any food blog event. 🙂

Roasted vegetable and Black bean BARE Burrito
Instructions
Roasted Vegetables:
  1. Pre heat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Cut the vegetables into big chunks and coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast them in the oven for 20-25minutes or until tender, but not mushy.
Black Bean Sauce:
  1. Heat olive oil in a sauce pan, when warm add garlic and sauté.
  2. Add chopped onions, jalapeno and sauté till onions turn transparent.
  3. Add the beans, tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Mix well. You can add water if the mixture is too thick.
  4. Let it simmer for about 10minutes. Keep aside.
Guacamole:
  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and pulse them couple of times. I like it smooth, but you can make it chunky too.
Putting them all together:
  1. Take a bowl, add a layer of rice then add the black bean sauce, roasted vegetables, guacamole and cheese. Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve.
Recipe Notes

Notes:

· Store bought guacamole and salsa will reduce the prepping time.

· Vegetables can be either grilled or sautéed instead of roasting.
