Each Very Veggie Recipe Submission utilizes Jing Si Instant Rice — which was developed thanks to the venerable Dharma Master Cheng Yen, the founder of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation. Versatile, convenient, and delicious, Jing Si Instant Rice was designed so that in an hour of great need, Tzu Chi volunteers can provide a straightforward and nutritious source of relief.
As easy to make as they are delicious, these veggie burritos make a great meal all on their own! Packed with lots of protein from tofu and beans, this mouth-watering dish is sure to satisfy your mid-afternoon cravings. Credit for this recipe goes to Cupertino High School student, Selina Juang!
