Vegan MoFo Day 20 - Uncle Billy

I am going with the original post title I had decided on when I was planning yesterday's dinner (because I can't find a better one for what I ended up with).  Originally I wanted to make chilli, but by the time I got home I wasn't feeling it, so I made a burrito instead. YAY.

And I was feeling fore & aft so I made took step by step pics.

For fear of one day encountering the wrath of someone like this, I made sure to put the filling in layers. LAYERS!!!  I didn't want the worst burrito ever after all.

So first - rice, this was 1/4 cup brown basmati cooked with a stock cube and a tbsp. of tomato puree.

Chilli or other filling - this was just mushrooms, some Redwoods soya mince, kidney beans, pepper and sweetcorn sautéed with a shallot, a clove of garlic and bit of oil. Then I added some oregano and chilli powder.

Shredded raw white cabbage for a bit of crunch.

Salsa! Just the hot jarred variety.
 
In lieu of sour cream - soya yoghurt.
 
Hot sauce!  I used Cholula.
 
Tesco smoked cheese not cheezly white* :(

Then roll that puppy up tight!

Cut in half to make it easier to eat

AND SHCOFF, trying not to cry about the *cheezly mould that meant I had to use the hard old piece of Tesco cheddar from the back of my fridge instead.  I should know better than to leave an open block of cheezly in the fridge, that shit goes from 0-mouldy in less than a week.  (Usually I grate the whole thing and then freeze what I don't use to save my future self from times of cheezly mould sadness!)

Cockney translations of the day:
Uncle Billy = Chilly
Fore & Aft = Daft
(I know I know, chilly & chilli are not the same thing, but hey it rhymes!)

  2. Cheezly mould is the worst! But I really like that Tesco smoked stuff. I think I'd rather have that than regular Cheezly. Also, I want that burrito.

    I have an open block of cheezly in the fridge right now, I really should go and put it in the freezer!

  4. Vegan Cheese mould is the worst mould. But that burrito looks so good and properly layered, might I add.

  5. I love burritos, but I clearly don't make some often enough. It is always a great way to clean out the fridge.

  6. The burrito link made me LOL! "Trapped in a goddamned cilantro cavern." As a cilantro-hater I feel his pain!

    Nice step-by-stepper! Too bad about the moldy cheese though. There's no sadder sight than that of moldy vegan cheese.
