Burritos are like tacos, you can stuff them with almost anything. Although, I’ve noticed that in my house we stuff them with the same thing over and over again. Which is why I decided to try something different by using seasonal vegetables and that’s how I came up with this burrito stuffed with lentils and kale. I added sweet potato and its sweetness helped to bring out the flavor of the lentils. Roasted red pepper combined with garlic and sour cream gives this dish the final touch. To make things easier, use bottled or canned roasted peppers; you can usually find them in the dressings isle of your supermarket. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • To save time, prepare the kale the day before. Wash it and remove the stems. Let it dry and then store it in a plastic bag or container.
  • The sweet potato adds a slight sweetness to the lentils. For a different flavor add mushrooms or squash.
