Zucchini Burrito Bowl


September and April are two months when Blogging marathon goes a step further and becomes mega marathon. That means an entire month of blogging with Sundays off. 26 recipes in a month. The theme for this month is a generic protein rich foods. 

With almost a two month long summer vacation where I neither cooked or clicked, I wasn’t a 100% confident that I would be ready to participate this month. Somehow between old drafts and some simple everyday recipes, I am here finally! 

The first recipe in the series is a simple black beans and zucchini burrito bowl. Burrito bowls are very easy to make and it’s a favorite at home. Black beans is loved in almost all recipes and so I always have some in hand. I served the beans preparation with cooked brown rice, grated cheese, sour cream and homemade guacamole

Read on for the simple preparation and the pictorial.
