Big Bean Burrito
  • Time: 20 minutes
  • Complexity: very easy

Big Bean Burrito

We are very much a mexican household and being a semi-vegetarian, beans are a frequent feature in my version of mexican meals with the humble burrito a classic example. This is one of those dishes I eat regularly for lunch and very rarely tire of!

You can also serve it up for dinner and let everyone help themselves by putting everything in bowls rather than preparing the burrito to plate - a fun, family-friendly way of eating together. Also, if you're anything like me (as the pictures demonstrate) you'll want to cram as much in as possible, and most likely you might struggle to roll this bad boy up! It's not called my Big Bean Burrito for no reason! 

Check out the accompanying recipes including my guacamole, homemade whole-wheat tortilla's (they are surprisingly easy to whip up!), and my vege bean chili.

Basic Chocolate Cupcakes

This is a recipe I've used for a few cupcakes and can be modified slightly to do something a bit more interesting like a little surprise filling in the middle!

Boston Cream Donut Cake

Being a huge fan of donuts (to the point of obsessive), I wanted to make myself a birthday cake that was a little something special and decided to draw on my love of donuts as inspiration!

This cake is delish - well, for donut lovers at least... Boston Cream's are my favourite, and it really does taste like one! Definitely a goody to take into work and share!
