These burrito bowls are, well, burritos without the tortilla! But bursting with flavour; think chilli-spiced brown rice, black beans, avocado and tomatoes. Try these meatless Mexican bowls of goodness with some tortilla chips for a speedy tasty feast.

  1. Put the rice in a pan with 300ml (1⁄2pt) water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Cover the pan and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside, covered.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and celery and fry for 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir through the garlic, paprika and cumin. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir through the red pepper, black beans and stock. Simmer for 10 minutes; season to taste.
  3. Divide the rice and beans between warmed plates and top with the sliced avocado, crumbled feta and a drizzle of yogurt. Serve with chilli sauce and tortilla chips, if you like.
