The one place that I LOVE to eat but haven’t been able to eat at is Chipotle. I LOVE that place.
However, they cook with soybean oil, and there is bell pepper in EVERYTHING. 😦
Boo. I saw MamaPea’s Almost Chipotle Guacamole, and I knew that I had to try it!
The recipe is here. Let me tell you… it is AWESOME! I left out the sriracha sauce. (peppers..) I could have eaten the entire bowl!
With the guac in mind, I wanted to make a mock Chipotle burrito bowl.
Since I had rice yesterday, I subbed millet in its place. Cilantro lime rice would be wonderful in this though.
Luv’s Mock Chipotle Bowl
- Millet (or rice)
- Adzuki beans
- roasted brussels
- roasted butternut squash
I started out by cooking my adzuki beans in my pressure cooker on high for 15 minutes. I cooked them with my Chinese 5-Spice seasoning. YUM!
Meanwhile, I chopped my butternut squash and brussels. I tossed them in a little sunflower oil and salt and peppered the brussels. I cooked them for 25 minutes on 450º.
I love making millet, because it is so versatile. I love to toast my millet first for a more nutty flavor. I almost reminds me of popcorn.
We topped our salads with fresh cilantro and fresh squeezed lime!
I hadn’t been creative in the kitchen in a long time! This meal was so good, and it made me feel very accomplished!
What a great start to the week!
I hope all you mom’s out there had a very happy Mother’s Day!!
