This was my first time trying one of Amy’s burritos. The bean and rice burrito sounded like a good bet for a vegan version. I was a little surprised at the calorie count for it though because at 320 calories it’s way more than a snack, but the burrito is fairly small so it looks more like a snack or part of a meal.
Nutritional Info and ingredients.
It tastes pretty standard for a pinto bean and rice burrito, good, but not amazing. It’s a little too high in fat and sodium for my liking, but maybe for a small meal it will work for others. It reheats really easily which makes it an easy meal. I think I will make a recipe for this myself because it’s pretty simple to create. 🙂
Here’s my overall review score.
Basic Nutritional Info: 300 calories 8 grams of fat 24% fat by calories 10 g of protein
Price: $1.98 USD In Canada about $4
Texture: 4/5, tortillas is a little dry but that’s to be expected in lower fat tortillas
Healthfulness: 2/5 (high in fat and sodium)
Low fat: No, medium fat recipe
Gluten Free: No
Soy Free: Yes
Nut Free: Yes
GMO Free: Yes
Would I eat it again? Yes, but I think I’m more apt to make one myself.
What could be improved? Use less oil in the recipe and lower the sodium content. It’s a little too high to be considered health food.
Disclosure, I’m doing this review of my own accord, I was not given any free product nor was I paid to do this review.
