Vegan Thai Burrito Recipe

Thai Green Curry Chickpea Burritos

We know you're huge fans of Trader Joe's. Here, resident vegan girla shares her recipe for Thai green curry chickpea burritos. All of the ingredients can be found at your local Trader Joe's.

When we were visiting my sister in Northern California recently, she made us these fabulous burritos. The ingredients are from Trader Joe’s, so I was sure to pick the items up before returning to Trader Joe’s-less Colorado. Taste of Thai makes a green curry paste that could be substituted in with some coconut milk. However, a sub for the Cumin and Chickpea mix also required for the recipe was hard to locate. So if you’re lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe’s, or have a generous relative to send you TJ loot, this recipe is for you. Are you listening, sis?

Keep reading for the uncomplicated and delicious-sounding recipe.

I sautéed the zucchini and can of drained chickpeas for about 3-4 minutes. Add the bag of seasoned chickpeas and jarred curry sauce. Stir well to combine. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for 20-25 minutes.

Serve in a flour tortilla with sour cream and cilantro and enjoy!

Awwww... :( What about those of us who have no TJ nearby?  Would <3 to try this recipe.  Perhaps, I can come up w/ some kind of variation.  Great idea!

Oh, cool! Denver definitely has a lot more veg-friendly places than we do up here. We have about 2 vegan/vegetarian restaurants, but they're both really good. Let me know if you ever make it up north and we'll have to meet at one!

i live in downtown denver! I cook your vegan recipes all the time; I had no idea you were just a couple hours away. Tasty bite is indian food that comes in a little pouch that you just have to microwave. It's really good, pretty healthy (a bit high in sodium but not outrageous), and all of it is vegetarian, most is vegan. They sell it at Kings (in the organic section), Safeway, Whole Foods and Costco sometimes. You should try it!
