In my years as a vegan, I have  enjoyed a variety of burritos in my day. In fact, the best vegan burrito, I have ever eaten other than in my home, was in Newport Beach, California. I must admit, I tried to replicate the infamous burrito many times.

Although my first attempts failed, I kept trying, and I finally did it. In fact, I mastered it. Throughout my quest for the ultimate burrito, the key was simplicity. The filling wasn’t where I failed; the combination of sauce and flavors I missed was the problem.

Once I figured out the combination, the rest was a breeze. Using my Oil-Free Nacho Cheese Sauce (click link for recipe),  a nut free avocado cilantro lime dressing, and simple Sriracha, the sauce combination came together. That, and a little pico de gallo and the use of a panini maker, and the ultimate burrito came to fruition.

I maintained the integrity of my health goal by not using any oil and making my cheese from potatoes and carrots.The lentil/black bean filling and refried vegan beans create an incredible filling. The secret is letting the black beans, lentils, tomatoes and spices slow cook and create a thick and hearty filling.

Although my Cuisinart Panini Maker is my favorite sandwich maker, I use it for a variety of purposes. The burrito is one of those purposes. A crunchy burrito is perfect to maintain the structure of the burrito, while assuring it doesn’t get soggy. No one likes a soggy burrito.

In order to drizzle the sauces, since presentation is important, I put the avocado dressing in a plastic quit bottle. The cheese sauce, on the other hand, went in a glass dressing dispenser, because of its temperature. The Sriracha is self explanatory; drizzle with ease. We love it hot, but use sparingly is you are new to the hot experience.

My husband LOVED this burrito. He said nothing during dinner, not because he was angry, but because he ate diligently without a word. All I heard was “Oh my God; this is good.” That is how you make a carnivore a vegan.

Kathy, the can of fire roasted tomatoes. Do you mean a medium size can? 14 oz? That’s what I’m going to pick up, but just making sure, since they come in larger sizes too.
