Vegan Burritos Even My Boyfriend Loves
Being a vegan in a relationship with a meat-eater can be a difficult sea to navigate. I so badly would love him to give up meat (he’s lactose intollerant, so dairy is already out). However, I would never want him to think I’m pressuring him into anything, and most days, I’d really prefer not to cook him meat. Now, let me stop you there, because I know some of you are sitting there saying, “But Halli, you don’t have to cook for him.” You are so right. You are so so so right. I know I don’t need to. Many nights I don’t. And my great guy truly doesn’t expect me to. But, I adore making food for both of us. It’s one of my many love languages. For me, feeding someone is an amazing way to say, ”I love you. I love you so much I wanted to feed you. And not just that, but I fed you with something I made that is wholesome and nutritious.”
Today, I wanted to see if I could make a vegan burrito he and I would both adore. I am please to announce it was an absolute success! He even thought I had put egg in the burrito. Hehe, nope.
Whether you are dipping your toe into the vegan work, a seasoned vegan veteran, or just want to diversify your food, this burrito is fantastic.
