Chop and steam the sweet potatoes. Steam until tender. About ten minutes. Once they are finished, drain them and set aside.
Cook the brown rice according to instructions.Once the rice is al dente, set aside.
Chop the onion and add to a pan with some heated olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Saute until translucent.
Add the chiles in ancho sauce to the onion, and also add other spices if desired (Cumin, Cayenne) or any other sauces (verde salsa, hot sauce).
Mix the steamed sweet potato, cooked brown rice, vegan refried beans, and onion mixture. Mix well.
Fold in cilantro (and other herbs if desired).
Fold in cheese.
Assemble the burritos:
Place half a cup of the burrito mixture in the middle of a tortilla.
Fold the sides over and then roll the tortilla.
Place the burritos on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer for a day.
Remove the burritos and wrap them individually. I use both plastic wrap and tin foil.
Store burritos in the freezer.
Remove wrapping from burrito.
Place in microwave for 1-2 minutes on high.
Flip burrito and microwave for another 1-2 minutes as needed.
The best way to steam sweet potatoes is with a steamer basket to keep them out of the water. The longer the sweet potatoes sit in water, the more nutrients they lose.
You do not want the rice to be mushy once it is cooked. I usually use less water than it says on the package (2 cups water for 1 cup rice).
