When it comes to hummus I’m not a star vegan child. I honestly don’t like plain ol’ hummus and my mom doesn’t either, so maybe she gave me the trait. I once stumbled upon this group of wild vegans (I’m looking at you, Reddit) and apparently they eat hummus daily, for a pleasurable snack. I felt like I was an outcast for not liking it. For a snack I go for some pecans, peanuts or a chunk of dark chocolate, granola, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, flax muffins, natural fig bars you know, toothy foods. So I got butt-hurt and decided I needed to at least try and be a better vegan example. I actually decided upon a hummus I like. Its got a typical hummus base, hit with a spike of smoky peppers. I enjoy it with carrot sticks, bell pepper slices and cauliflower.
I used to not be a breakfast person at all. It was a sad time. Over the last year I’ve made it a point to try and eat at least a few bites of something between 8 and 9 am. Okay, sometimes 10 am. So, I bought a few frozen breakfast burritos to try out the idea of something spicy and savory for breakfast. I loved it and ended up buying a few more. Well, that got expensive quick. Naturally I decided I would get arrogant and make my own. This is what I came up with, and to me they not only taste great, but honestly.. I think they taste better. Give it a try, I included a few extra pictures to guide you in the “rolling process” and it’s actually quite fun.
I think we all know by now that I love enchiladas. Every time I make them I do it a different way. This time I wanted to give the potato burrito a try, and it turned out delicious paired with my homemade salsa, my homemade cheese sauce, homemade enchilada sauce (all three recipes are inside this post) and some blue corn chips. This seriously makes a ton of food, so be prepared to not cook for a while after you make this, or be prepared to have a food baby because you can’t stop yourself from eating it all the first day.
I made this on a whim, for a fresh dinner last week. I fell in love and ate the same thing the next day for lunch. Give it a try and add things that you love, there is a ton of room to play with this recipe.
Okay, so I pretty much blew my own mind with this one. I was brain storming the other day thinking about how my cheese always slides off of my burger. I thought about it and a spark happened in my noggin noodle. Put the cheese inside the patty. It will be delicious, surprising and it will keep my burger from sliding around. I then learned it’s already been done with beef patties.. so I wasn’t as smart as I thought I was. Still an awesome idea, though. It worked just like I had dreamed.
