This vegetarian burrito recipe is so easy to make that you will never need to buy a packaged burrito again! Using fresh ingredients and making them yourself means you know exactly what is going into your healthy vegetarian recipes, you avoid preservatives and you get the nutrients from the fresh vegetables.
  Tortillas 6
  Canned black eyed peas/½ cup dried, fully cooked 14 Ounce (1 Can)
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Red onion 1 , diced
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Zucchini 1 , chopped
  Pepper 1 , diced (Green Or Red)
  Tomato 1 , diced
  Cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1 Teaspoon
  Sea salt 2 Teaspoon (Approximate)

If you are using dried peas in your healthy vegan recipes, they must be fully cooked before you begin. Black-eyed peas can be soaked overnight to make them more easily digestible, but this is not necessary. Drain the peas, and then add enough water to cover them by 2 inches.
Gently boil them for 1 hour with NO salt. You can add a bit of kombu (seaweed) to the cooking water while they boil for improved digestibility.
If you are using canned, look for a can that does not have any salt listed in the ingredients. Some varieties are actually cooked with kombu, which is ideal. Be sure to rinse and drain the beans before using them.
Heat a large pan to medium, add olive oil and saute onion until softened. Add garlic, and saute briefly. Next, add the zucchini to the pan and saute until soft. The pepper goes in next, then the tomato very briefly. As soon as the tomato is warmed, add the spices and 1 tsp of the salt. Stir the drained peas into the vegetables, and add the other tsp of salt. Stir to combine. I hope you enjoy this vegetarian burrito recipe, the latest of my healthy vegetarian recipes.
