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!)


  1. awesome burrito! sometimes you gotta create magic with what you have on hand ya know?

  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.

  3. That link about the burrito was hilarious!
    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.


speak to me, yo!
