Ranch Dressing: I love Follow Your Heart Vegan Ranch.
Guacamole: Store bought or homemade work equally well here.
Additional Toppings: Use what you like: lettuce, pico, red cabbage slaw, etc.
Making or Purchasing Cauliflower Rice
I made my own cauliflower rice for the burritos.
A small head of cauliflower yields about 6 cups.
To make cauliflower rice: put a few florets into a food processor and process them until they looked like rice.
If you don't have a food processor, purchase cauliflower rice in the produce section of your grocery store.
But DON'T use the cauliflower rice from the freezer section. Frozen veggies loose a lot of their texture through the freezing process. So, the rice will turn out mushy.
The only thing that needs to be cooked in this recipe is the cauliflower rice. Other than that, its just assembly.
First, heat oil in a skillet, then add the cauliflower rice.
Then, when the cauliflower rice starts to brown add the buffalo sauce and cook a few more minutes.
Next, make the burritos by adding the cauliflower rice, black beans, a drizzle of ranch and a dollop of guacamole. Roll them up and eat!
Burrito Size Options
This recipe will make either 3 or 4 Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Rice and Black Bean Burritos, depending on the size of your tortillas.
I used 12" flour tortillas, so for me it made 3.
But, if you have the more standard 10 inch tortilla, you will get 4 burritos out of this recipe.
Store the components of the burritos separately.
Store the rice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
I don't recommend freezing.
