Vegetarian Burrito Bowl | IndMex style

Have you had days where you start out saying I am not going to make anything fancy for dinner today and end up just making one? Well this was one such day for me.
That said , Vegetarian Burrito Bowl is a very quick and easy to make with ingredients in hand. with just some left over rice, veggi’s and avocado in the fridge, you can prep your bowl.

Most of the time these bowls have more rice and cheese than vegetable and guacamole when ordered and are filled with calories. As I always say when you control what goes it tastes better and is healthier. My take on Vegetarian Burrito Bowl, IndMex style:
