Ananda Burrito Recipe (w/variations): Only $1.67! (Made in 3-5 Minutes)

Written by:

I have made dozens of versions of this super easy “burrito” and in fact, it is a usual lunch food for me, after a green salad. It is tasty, and instead of using a refined white flour tortilla, you can prepare this using a nori wrapper, which has so many beautifying minerals OR a gluten free tortilla (brown rice, teff, organic corn even), if you want something that feels more substantial.

And just like the Raw Taco Salad Recipe, this recipe is super easy and really affordable; it breaks down to only $1.67 per burrito! And so fast to make- under 5 minutes for sure.  How many meals can you say costs less than that?! Well ones that are made of whole, healthy foods- not fake junky foods to avoid while pregnant.

This is also a great recipe for those who like to pack their lunches.  Simply pack up the filling and bring the nori wrappers or tortilla separate, and assemble there.

Ingredients
  • Dressing:
  • 1 Tbs. organic Dijon mustard = $0.35
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice = $0.10
  • ½ tsp. nutritional yeast = $0.31
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Celtic or Himalayan sea salt, to taste (optional)
  • Base Mixture:
  • 1 cup of diced celery (about 2 long stalks) = $0.75
  • ⅓ cup diced white onion = $0.25
  • ⅓ cup chopped parsley = $0.50
  • 1 avocado = $2
  • Untoasted nori wrappers (available at a health market or online) = $0.60 OR gluten-free brown rice or teff tortillas, or organic corn tortillas (often in the refrigerated section of health stores) ( 1 = $0.75 )
  • Optional add-ons:
  • Handful of baby spinach or a few kale leaves
  • A few Tbs. of Probiotic & Enzyme Salad
  • Sprouts

Instructions
  1. Mix the dressing of the mustard, lemon juice and nutritional yeast together in a medium bowl and sit to the side.
  2. Dice the onion, celery and parsley, and add to the dressing bowl. Mix everything together very well. Season with black pepper and a little bit of sea salt (optional) to suit your taste.
  3. Cut an avocado lengthwise and remove pit. Scoop out the flesh and cut in lengthwise strips.
  4. Lay a nori wrapper or the tortilla flat on a plate, and lay some avocado strips right down the center (the long way), avoiding a few inches from the top and bottom. Next spoon some of the mixture from the bowl on top of the avocado strips. Top with any add-ons you like. Wrap up as you would a burrito, by folding the bottom end up then wrapping the sides towards the middle. Hold in your hands so all the folds are held securely in place. Beginners- or anyone really!- should definitely eat over a plate! Enjoy and experiment to find your own favorite combinations. :) And share with us what you invented!

  1. L.O.V.E. I made the Ananda Burritos two days in a row. Yesterday, for a group of friends at my gluten free lunch soiree and today for dinner – everyone agrees, it’s delicious! It’s quick and easy. Next time I’d like to try it with the nori wrapper. The gluten free tortilla was OK when heated up in a frying pan with coconut oil. I’m saving the last burrito for tomorrow’s lunch :) I so cannot believe I’m preparing amazing and healthy meals AND posting about it. Just year ago, a chalupa at Cafe 28 on Fifth was a typical lunch! Or a dirty dog from the vendor across the street. I never prepared anything at home and never thought about what I was putting into my body. Very happy I found Kimberly Snyder. I feel so much better now that I’m eating clean and green.

  2. These are sooo delicious. I eat them almost every day. I do use toasted nori though. Filling is avocado, broccoli and carrot sticks, sprouts, lemon juice, low sodium tamari and sriracha sauce. Hooked:-)))

  3. Hi Kimberly:

    I love you and your plan. I don’t have access to celery, what would be another alternative for anything with celery that you suggest? (live in a far away country!)

    xo

  4. This recipe inspired me to create a nori avocado wrap to satisfy my sushi craving. No more takeout sushi for me! The filling for the nori wrap included: a small amount of grated ginger combined with low sodium gluten free tamari mixed with cooked brown rice (next time I’ll try quinoa), layered with avocado strips, cucumber matchsticks, shredded carrot, sprouts, sesame seeds and a squeeze of lemon on top. Thanks Kimberly for your inspiration and expanding my repertoire of healthy and delicious meal options. The result is a new found abundance of energy and a more vital and full life! :)

  5. Love it looking forward to making it .

  6. This sounds great – I was looking for something to take to a day long seminar and this
    fits the bill perfectly ( also will be taking a glowing green smoothie but wanted something
    to crunch on)

  7. Where can I find nutritional yeast? BTW, just got your book, loving it. You are an inspiration for me to get healthy again. Thank you so much.

  8. Hi Kim!

    I am always playing with wraps and their ingredients. I am also always looking for ways to eat more sea veggies!

    Thank you for the great idea!

    Also, have you tried the Ezekiel brand sprouted (oil and flour free) wraps. They are awesome. I find them to be easy to digest and really filling :)

    All the best,

    Jen

  9. Hi Kimberley
    I have just gotten your book out of the library.
    I notice in a lot of your recipe you use Braggs amino acids or nutritional yeast…. sadly I have antibodies to the yeast in both of these and soy sauce and marmite,, vegemite… any foods that contain bakers yeast ( Saccharomyces cerevisiae)… what could I use in place of these products in your recipes.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Cheers

    • After looking up nutritional yeast (as I have never heard of it), I found that it is inactive as in dead and is not baker’s yeast. So maybe you won’t have any side effects with this.

      Good luck.

  10. I am not sure what nutritional yeast is?? is there a difference between it and regular yeast?
    I purchased The Beauty Detox Foods and have been trying to follow the recipes as closely as possible. Lots of the dressings call for nutritional yeast, wanted to make sure i was using the correct yeast.

  11. I am allergic to Mustard. Many dressing call for Mustard. What can I use to replace it. This Recipe sound delicious but need something to replace the Mustard.

    Thanks

  12. How many “burritos” does this make? 1 cup of celery seems like a lot for one burrito…can you make a few? How long does the filling keep if you don’t eat it right away? Thanks for the fun recipe!
