Drool-Worthy Vegan Potato Bean Burritos with Vegan Cheese Sauce

These skillet-grilled, hearty vegan burritos are stuffed with roasted and seasoned white and sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and my special cheeze sauce. They are the perfect meal to prepare during the week, when you’re short on time, but positively hangry from running yourself in every direction all day. These filling burritos are ready in about 30 minutes and will make any Wednesday (or Tuesday, Thursday, Friday…) feel like a fiesta.

These are fast but not at all freaky because they’re made with real food that will nourish your body and fill you up.

Healthiest Vegan Recipes


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. Combine potatoes with oil, spices, and season with salt and pepper and spread out on the pan. Remember, the smaller you chop your potatoes, the faster they’ll bake. Bake for 10 minutes, shake the pan or stir/flip the potatoes and bake another 8-10 minutes or until crispy, browned and very tender.
  2. Make the cheese sauce in your blender.
  3. Also, prepare your other ingredients. I like to warm the beans in a small pot.
  4. Assemble the burritos. Lay out the tortilla shells and spread with beans and top with potatoes, onions, cheeze sauce, and other toppings, then fold the sides over.
  5. Warm a flat saute pan over medium heat and add a tsp of coconut or avocado oil. Once hot, add a burrito one at a time, and heat on each side for a couple of minutes, until brown and slightly crispy on the outside. I use a spatula to gently press down on the burrito. Serve with more cheeze sauce and cilantro and green onions.
