Before I went fully raw vegan, going to Chipotle for a vegan burrito was a favorite past time. So delicious and satisfying. I was slightly devastated when I had to give it up. No lie. However I tried my hand at making a version that would work with my new raw vegan lifestyle and guys, let me just tell you, it did not disappoint. This recipe is SO much healthier and extremely tasty! All of the ingredients are refreshing, hydrating and won't put you in a burrito coma. Give it a try. Seriously a game changer!
