I honestly love buying frozen vegan burritos, especially from Amy’s. I often grab three or four when they’re on sale and keep them around for quick, hearty snacks or emergency work lunches. BUT, one of my goals for 2019 was to eat homemade food for more of my meals, so I spent a weekend in January making dozens of vegan burritos, freezing them and reheating them. For science. Science and financial benefit.
I’ve included instructions for making, freezing, reheating, and customizing your own homemade vegan burritos. Making my base recipe will save you an average of $2.10 per burrito as compared to store-bought burritos.
Vegan burritos: store-bought versus homemade
I wanted to be able to compare the cost and taste of my vegan black bean burritos to the ones available in the store, so I kept the fillings for this base recipe super simple.
