While I was enjoying the summer vegetable bibimbap for breakfasts last week I could not help but think about how similar bibimbap is to burrito bowls. They are bowl rice bowls filled with meats and/or vegetables and a spicy sauce, in one case a gachujang sauce and in the other case a salsa. With that thought I had to try burrito bowls with the same late summer produce including zucchini, corn, black beans and avocado along with a fresh pico de gallo made with some fresh field ripened tomatoes for breakfasts this week! Instead of going with rice this time I went for something a little healthier, quinoa, well I actually went with a blend of quinoa and sprouted brown and wild rice. These late summer vegetable burrito bowls certainly make for some tasty, filling and healthy meals!
Of course it tastes better once it is all mixed up!
