Oh these Mexican wraps, I am simply in love with them. Plus the fact that they can be customized as per your taste. Burritos are healthy and loaded with tons of vitamins, good fat, carbohydrates, and fiber. You can easily modify them as a vegetarian or vegan burrito. Simply by adding ingredients of your choice. What else can one ask for?
However, a few years ago I thought that there is no vegetarian version of it. But a veggie mind always knows that it is possible to make everything meat-free. So I explored the internet and found awesome results. I let myself inspired by various recipes and made my first burrito which turned out very delicious. The star of the dish was obviously guacamole.
The addition of rice is optional, I know it is an essential part of a burrito, but it was not well appreciated by my family. You can go all wild and experiment with the ingredients in this recipe to suit your taste. But honestly the simpler you keep them, the better they will taste.
When it comes to picking tortillas, you can choose either between corn, whole wheat, and white flour tortillas. If you want to pick a healthy option, opt for either corn or whole wheat tortilla.
One corn tortilla (24gm) contains 52.3 kcal providing 10.7 gm carbohydrates out of which 1.5 gm is fiber (net carbs 9.2 gm); 1.4 gm protein and 0.7 gm fat. Comparatively, one whole wheat tortilla (28gm) contains 66.9 kcal, providing 11 gm carbs of which 1.2 gm is fiber (net carbs 9.8 gm); 2 gm protein and 1.8 gm fat.
If you are looking for a gluten-free, go for corn tortillas. Whole wheat tortillas are definitely a better bet than white flour tortillas since they contain more fiber, aiding in digestion and making you feel fuller for longer.
