Easy Vegan Burritos

Vegan Burritos

These burritos are so easy and so delicious I could eat them every day! I’ve put the ingredients below of what I used in mine that particular day but feel free to experiment and add different beans, red onion, chillies etc.

Vegan Burritos

What you’ll need:

1 carton of black beans

1 small can of sweetcorn

2 tablespoons of taco seasoning (make your own of you don’t have any – Google is your friend)

1-2 tomatoes chopped

1 avocado (mash with black pepper, salt and squeeze of lemon)

Cheese to sprinkle of top (use dairy free to make vegan

Tortillas (as many as you need. I used 2)

What to do:

1. Heat some oil in a pan and add the sweetcorn, black beans and taco seasoning. Cook on medium heat for 5 mins

2. In a hot pan dry fry tortillas for 6 seconds each side

3. Build your burritos – place bean mixture, chopped tomatoes and avocado on tortilla and top with grated cheese

NB: The bean/corn mix will make enough for 4-6 burritos. Any left over can be kept in the fridge for 3 days

Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate-Banana-Bread

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s been all systems go here. My life seems to consist of packing at the moment. I can’t wait to move into our new home but the packing is such a pain!! However it’s a good time for us to de-clutter and do a clear out before the baby arrives.

Talking of babies- I’m having a serious pregnancy craving for something delicious today. I saw the over ripe bananas on the counter knowing that yet again they had been wasted. Well not today my banana friends. Today you are being united with chocolate and will make a pregnant lady very happy.

I’m writing this as it’s baking in the oven and I’m already fantasising about having a great big slab of it with a cup of tea later.

Anyway here is the recipe:

Chocolate Banana Bread 

Serves 1 pregnant lady  6

Ingredients

1 cup sugar

2 eggs (beaten)

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3 bananas (mashed)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1.5 cups plain flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp bicarb (baking) soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup chocolate chips (or chocolate chopped up)

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine bananas, oil, vanilla extract and eggs. Mix until combined.

2. Combine sugar, flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa powder.

3. Add banana mix to flour mix and ensure fully incorporated.

4. Mix in chocolate chips

5. Pour mixture into a greased loaf tin and bake for 60-70 minute. Until a tooth pick comes out clean.

6. Cool for 15 minutes in the tin and then leave to cool completely on a wire rack

You can eat this as it is, with ice cream, with cream, warmed up with some custard. Oh my I can’t wait until that timer goes off!

 

Veggie Kofta Curry

So this is my first recipe on this new blog. I’m so looking forward to sharing some delicious recipes with you. Please let me know if you try any.

First up is my favourite Kofta Curry. I’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s a firm favourite in our house. This version is both veggie and vegan. I have used store bought veggie meatballs here. The variety I use are so good and because I want this to be as simple as possible- I’ve taken a short-cut. If you want to make your own then check out these great veggie meatball recipes.
