These Vegetarian Burrito Bowls are quick, easy, healthy, one-pot and most importantly (to me at least) absolutely delicious! They are obviously vegetarian, as well as gluten free and nut free and whipped up in an Instant Pot making them an awesome family friendly weeknight dinner.

Recipes like this one are literally life savers. The kind of recipe that you remember when it’s 5 o’clock on a Tuesday and you don’t have anything planned for dinner. It’s made in an electric pressure cooker like an Instant Pot with only five minutes of prep time, so you can have dinner on the table in less than 40 minutes. Instant Pots are definitely a game changer for the weeknight dinner push. Check out Katie’s Instant Pot Veggie Curry and Instant Pot Cream of Cauliflower Soup.

Healthy Instant Pot Cooking Tips

Use a recipe specifically developed for the Instant Pot, especially if you are new to using this device

Read the instruction manual carefully

When pressure cooking make sure the steam release valve on the lid is turned to sealing while the Instant Pot is cooking

It takes about 10 minutes for the pressure to build up and the actual cooking to start

At the end of cooking follow the recipe instructions for carefully manually releasing the pressure or for allowing it to release naturally, which can take approximately 10 – 40 minutes

Tips For Healthy One Pot Eating

Rely on foods that are located in the grocery stores perimeter and are sold without a label

When you do shop the inner aisles for items like canned beans, broths and spices read the labels carefully and avoid chemicals and artificial flavors and monitor for salt and added sugars

Buy the best quality ingredients that you can easily afford, buy organic produce when it makes sense (check out the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen) and buy meat, dairy and eggs from sustainable and local sources

Cook with healthy fats, herbs and spices to add flavor

Lauren explains that clean eating doesn’t mean you have to live off salads. She describes foods to enjoy, limit and avoid. Enjoy minimally processed, whole foods without limitation and don’t worry about counting calories. Limit foods (meaning enjoy them in moderation) that can quickly add a lot of calories to your plate like added sugars, healthy fats, whole grains, starchy vegetables, dairy and processed meats like sausage or bacon. Avoid foods like high processed snacks, convenience foods like French Fries and chips and sugar drinks. Portion control is also important to a clean eating lifestyle.

Guide to Portion Control For One Pot Cooking

Use a small plate instead of a larger dinner plate

Fill up with veggies

Drink plenty of water

Keep the leftovers in the kitchen instead of bringing all the food to the table

These Vegetarian Burrito Bowls are kind of a dump and run dinner. All you really have to do is let your Instant Pot do its business. Another thing I love about these delicious bowls is that you get to jazz it up with the toppings. Who doesn’t love getting to personalize their own bowl with a little cheese, tomato, cilantro, sour cream or maybe I’m feeling a little sassy tonight, so I’ll toss in a few sliced jalapeños? Kids will love this interactive and yummy dinner. And don’t forget about the awesome leftovers. Try wrapping this up in a tortilla for lunch and someone is going to be very happy.

Just like this recipe Lauren’s cookbook is a winner. It can be difficult to find quick and easy dinner recipes that don’t call for processed foods filled with chemicals and artificial flavorings. Lauren’s recipes all focus on fresh, whole foods like fruits and vegetables, as well as unrefined whole grains like brown rice, oats and whole wheat flour. I also like that she says “if food isn’t delicious, it isn’t worth eating.” So I have high hopes for the other recipes in her book like the Butternut Squash Hash and Eggs, Korean Pulled Chicken Lettuce Cups, Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry and Chocolate Zucchini Cake!

1 cup uncooked long-grain brown rice

1 (16-ounce) can low-sodium pinto beans, undrained

1 cup low-sodium vegetable stock

2 bell peppers, sliced

2 red onions, sliced

1 teaspoon gluten free chili powder

6 ounces shredded pepper jack cheese

2 plum tomatoes, diced

1 jalapeño, sliced or diced

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


In your pressure cooker, combine the brown rice, pinto beans, vegetable stock, bell peppers, red onion and chili powder. Lock the lid in place and set the cooker to High pressure for 15 minutes.

When the cook time ends, let the pressure release naturally.

Scoop 1/2 cup of the rice filling into a dish. Top with cheese, tomato, jalapeño and cilantro, as desired.


This is a versatile recipe, so if onions aren’t your thing you can just use one and if you want to amp up the flavor even more go for 1 tablespoon or more of chili powder. At the end of the cook time allow the pressure to release naturally, which can take about 10 – 40 minutes. Make sure the silver float valve in the lid has gone down before you remove the lid.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
