Vegan Chickpea Burritos Recipe

These vegan chickpea burritos are a wonderful alternative to refried beans!

I love refried beans as much as the next person. They’re delicious, after all. But every once in a while, I like to mix things up to keep variety in my eating plan. So when it came time for burrito night, I opted for chickpeas instead.

A single unfolded, layered burrito shows the layers of these vegan chickpea burritos.

WHY CHICKPEAS?

  • They have a great nutritional value with tons of nutrients.
  • The fiber really fills you up.
  • They contain more of the essential 9 amino acids then other beans.
  • Low on the glycemic index.
  • May help stabilize blood sugar.
  • They aren’t expensive!

WHY CAULIFLOWER?

You may be wondering why I added cauliflower to this.

  1. It gave the beans some textural structure so they didn’t turn into complete mush. Hummus, anyone? (Just don’t overcook the cauliflower!)
  2. It snuck in more veggies without my kid even realizing it.
  3. With cauliflower added, the finial mixture had way more fiber and antioxidants.

So if burrito night is in your near future, give these a try and see if you enjoy it as much as I did. It’s tasty!!
