60. burritos
Edited on Mon May-30-05 05:31 PM by Kenneth ken

1 C dry pinto beans
3-4 C water
1t cumin
put these all in a crock pot and cook for 6-8 hours (on low or 2-3 hours on high)

1 C brown rice
2 C water
1/2 cube vegetable boullion
put water and boullion in a 1 1/2 qt sauce pan bring to a boil, add rice, reduce heat to very low and cook covered for 45 minutes.

1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
1/2 onion
1 zuchini
roughly chop all these, then saute in olive oil until tender, about 7-9 minutes.

cheeze (the comments for this part are his, not mine):
(thanks Veganistan - this is such good stuff!)
1 red pepper, roasted, skinned and seeded. ( I did not skin mine and I included about 1/3 of the seeds )

1 1/2 cups roasted cashews ( mine were unsalted and raw )

1 7 oz. can jalapeno peppers, drained ( I used dehydrated jalapenos from my garden last summer, about half a 1/4 cup dry. )

3/4 cup water ( I used the juice from some stewed tomato's I will be putting in soup tomorrow, plus some of the tomatoes and veggies from the can )

2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes ( HEY! I stuck to this! *the crowd stands and cheers* )

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice ( I forgot this )

1 1/2 Tbs. Soy sauce

1 1/2 Tbs. Tahini ( didn't have any )

Blend all ingredients together until smooth

making the burritos:

1/2 onion minced
2-4 cloves garlic minced
1 t cumin
1 t cayenne powder
hot peppers (to taste, I like hot, so used jalapenos and serranos, chopped)
saute the onion in olive oil for 4-5 minutes, add the garlic and saute
a couple more minutes. then add the beans along with any unabsorbed water (there should hopefully be some water left).
mash the beans, add the peppers, cumin and cayenne. cook until the excess water is gone and the beans gets a thickish consistency.

add beans, rice and veggies to a tortilla, roll up, and top with cheeze sauce.

notes: I probably should have sauteed the hot peppers with the green/red peppers and onion, but sort of forgot them at the time.

Would probably be good to add fresh chopped lettuce and tomatoes as topping and put the cheeze sauce over that.

Una mas cerveza, por favor! :D

It kind of takes a long time, but you don't have to keep a close eye on the beans, and you can do everything else while the rice cooks, so it isn't that much work.
