Burrito belongs to Mexican cuisine, it is a well-known shawarma-like dish. Its main ingredients are meat and beans wrapped in a tortilla (we will use lavash). They also add different vegetables, cheese, guacamole, or avocado… Since today we are making a fasting/vegan version, of course, we will not use meat and cheese, but as a result, we will still get a delicious burrito.

I recommend soaking the beans the night before so they cook quickly.
