Lentil-Zucchini Buritos


Lentil-Zucchini Burritos

Yum

The other night I was craving Mexican-y food, but I absolutely did not want black beans.  I decided to use lentils as the protein, sauteed up with some onions and zucchini.  It was amazing!


In frying pan, you simply saute up all the ingredients, then simply layer into your burrito and enjoy.  It's really easy to make.  If you make the lentils ahead of time, this would make a really nice meal to make in a short amount of time.


I topped my burrito with fresh tomatoes and red onions.  You could finish yours off with whatever you happen to have on hand: salsa, guacamole, scallions, fresh cucumbers, etc.


Serves: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, quartered & sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups cooked lentils
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. In a saute pan heat up your oil over medium heat.  Add the onions and saute, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add in the zucchini and garlic and saute, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is tender (about 3 minutes).
  3. Stir in the lentils, cumin, paprika, oregano, parsley, cayenne, and salt.  Cook until heated through.
  4. Spoon into burrito and top with fresh veggies.
