Lentil Burrito Bowls

What I find stunning about this recipe is the deconstructed aspect of the burrito bowl in that all the veggies look as if they are on display. Tossing out out the tortilla allows for the same yummy mix of flavors to shine! I’ve found too that this recipe is easier to eat when it is in this form. No need to get your hands dirty like you would with a classic burrito, a simple fork and knife will do. For an added kick, try amping up the flavor with a bit of homemade salsa on the side to truly make this dish come together.
