Sweet Potato Burritos with no Beans

Living with multiple food sensitivities sure makes your life super interesting. I have to navigate between – I can’t eat, and I do not like eating, and the list in between is not that long.

When I saw this recipe at

I really wanted to give it a try, but my body strongly disagrees with beans, so I had to change ingredients.

This is how I changed it:

(makes five portions)

Canned corn  – 150 grams

Quinoa – 80 grams

Mozzarella – 25 grams

Two medium sized sweet potatoes

Two table spoons of ready made hot salsa

black pepper


One tea spoon of olive oil

How to:

Make quinoa – use two parts of water and one part of quinoa, bring water to boiling on stove and cook on medium heat until water is absorbed.

Bake or microwave sweet potatoes until very soft.

Take cooked quinoa, add corn from a can, mash sweet potatoes in and add them, grind mozzarella in, and mix it all together, add two tablespoons of hot salsa, one teaspoon of olive oil and black pepper, mix together and warm in a deep skillet.

Warm a large tortilla and wrap the mixture in.












Looking back, I find sweet potato really overpowers quinoa, but quinoa adds protein, so I may repeat the recipe exactly the same.

One large tortilla is about 190 calories, and the no beans burrito mix is approximately 160 calories, 3 grams of fat, 30 grams of carbs and 5 grams of protein per one portion.
