  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt

Optional Additions 

For serving

  • 6 large flour tortillas (For a gluten-free option, use collard leaves or Ezekiel brand rice tortillas.)


  1. Prepare the Cauliflower Walnut Taco Meat
  2. Make the Spicy Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes: Place the diced sweet potatoes in a steamer basket and steam for 15-20 minutes, until fork tender. Alternatively, if you do not have a steamer, boil until fork tender and drain.

  4. Make the Avocado Tomato Salsa: Add the diced avocados, tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper to a bowl and stir to combine. 
  5. Prepare any other toppings you might be using. 
  6. Assemble the burritos by adding desired amount of spicy black beans and sweet potatoes, taco meat, avocado tomato salsa, and optional fillings to a tortilla and wrapping.
