Beans are rich in protein, fibre, iron and a great source of lysine in a vegan diet. Lysine is an essential nutrient. It is an amino acid responsible for muscle turnover and normal growth, and it is also responsible for transporting fat cells in your body to be used as energy.
Beans are a lysine-rich plant-based food source, and this vegan chimichangas recipe is a tasty way to include them in your diet.
Chimichangas are deep-fried burritos and are delicious fried until golden brown. Our vegan chimichangas recipe uses less oil, but you can use more if you like.
Once the vegan chimichangas are fried, serve with rice, salad or salsa for a healthy vegan dinner.
