 Happy New Year!  Did you guys do anything fun for New Year’s Eve?  I wish I had a fun and exciting story to tell you, but we stayed at home, ate pizza and watched a movie.  I also wish I could tell you that the only reason we stayed home was because we have a 5 month old, but I’m pretty sure we would have stayed home regardless!  We’re very much homebodies and I have no plans of changing that in 2017 :)

Whether you are wanting to eat a little healthier this year, get into meal planning to make your life easier, or you just want a tasty recipe, I’m pretty sure you will enjoy these Vegetarian Mason Jar Burrito Bowls!

I wanted to start 2017 off with a recipe that is very much me.  If you know me know, you know that I love Mexican food and I love my sweet potatoes.  And, if you’re lucky enough to live with me 😉 you know that I have way too many mason jars!  So, these burrito bowls pretty much combine all my loves into one jar.  Now, it isn’t a requirement that you have to eat these out of a mason jar, but they make it really easy to store and portion these burrito bowls so you can take them for lunch.  

As we start the new year, I would love to hear from you all!  Please let me know if there is something you would like to see more of, or any recipe ideas you would like me to tackle.  Happy 2017 :)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried rice, white or brown
  • 1 medium sweet potato, small diced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup corn kernals
  • 1/2 cup salsa or pico de gallo
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Guacamole
  • Lettuce

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the chopped sweet potato with 2 teaspoons olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake sweet potato until fork tender, 35-40 minutes.
  2. Cook rice according to package directions. Once rice is finished cooking, stir in the chopped cilantro and lime juice.

Notes

If making these burrito bowls ahead of time you can leave out the lettuce and guacamole until ready to serve. If you want to heat the burrito bowls warm, you can just stick the mason jar in the microwave for about 1 minute and then add in the lettuce and guacamole once warmed.

    These are genius, Izzy! I’m obsessed with burrito bowls and it’s so much healthier (and time savvy) to prep your own. LOVE.

    If it makes you feel any better we stayed home on NYE too and we don’t have a baby to use as an excuse, lol!

    We went to a basketball game and were home by 8:00 watching a movie and eating pizza — best of both worlds! Staying is pretty much what we always do on NYE. I’m loving these mason jar burrito bowls — everything I love in one delicious jar! Great way to start of 2017 Izzy. :)
