Make Ahead Super Green Vegan Quinoa Burritos

Burritos make good plane food. I remember seeing a woman twenty years ago on a flight with her husband and two children. They all had burritos. Foiled peeled back, five hours into a flight, I wanted to insert myself into her family. It was the moment I realized that a bit of extra craziness as you’re trying to get out of the house for a trip can be worth it. So, yes, burritos – they’re portable, you can eat a portion, rewrap, and save the rest for later. And the best part? You can fill them with whatever you like.

I made these vegan burritos to take on a flight from San Francisco to Honolulu, and froze the remainder to guarantee an easy meal when we got back. Each one is filled with quinoa, mung beans, and lots of shredded kale. Which might not sound appetizing, but(!) everything comes together with a creamy, serrano chile-spiked avocado dressing. Think feisty green goddess. The dressing is boosted with extra lemon, and the acid helps to keep the avocado bright, and loosens the kale up a bit at the same time. Double win.
