Kid Chef Healthy Burrito


Kids love burritos. Parents who have fussy eaters and Kid Chefs can make this healthy burrito to add veggies unobtrusively to their diets. A healthy burrito is good for overweight kids too. Organic whole wheat tortillas and brown rice are healthy whole grains. Beans are loaded with protein and fiber. Kid Chefs can soak ½ cup of organic pinto beans overnight in a pot of water to make four burritos. The next day, rinse and drain the pinto beans and pour back into the pot with 1 ½ cups of boiling water, and simmer 30 minutes. Using organic ingredients add to the pot a thick slice of red onion, 2 minced cloves of garlic, sea salt, return to a boil and simmer another 25 minutes. In another pot, Kid Chefs can put ½ cup brown rice in 1 ¼ cups of water and ½ tbsp butter, bring to a boil, and simmer 25 minutes. Add organic veggies, 1 chopped carrot, 1 cup chopped broccoli, 1 slice minced red onion, 1 clove minced garlic to the rice and simmer 20 more minutes. Kid Chefs can toast an organic whole wheat tortilla sprinkled with ¼ cup shredded organic pepper jack cheese in a 350 degree oven for 6 minutes. On the center of the tortilla put some of the brown rice mixture and top with the beans, and fold the tortilla ends in and fold the sides together. Kid Chefs can make healthy burritos for family picnics or lunches on the go.
