I purchased the Michael Smith Cookbook called Real Food, Real Good recently and made these easy and delicious burritos. They are a quick meal to make for lunch or dinner. I switched a few ingredients like using brown rice.

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp safflower oil

1/2 vidalia onion chopped

2-3 garlic cloves chopped

1 tbsp chipotle chili powder

1 tbsp cumin powder

1 19 oz can red kidney beans or black beans rinsed and drained

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

2 cups water

1 cup brown rice rinsed

1 tsp sea salt

Burrito Toppings

8 large whole wheat tortillas

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 avocados diced

1 handful cilantro

1 cup spicy salsa

DIRECTIONS

In a pot put 2 tablespoons of oil. Saute onions, garlic, chipotle chili powder and cumin on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add in kidney beans, diced tomatoes, water, brown rice and sea salt. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 30 – 45  minutes and then remove from heat covered until juices absorb for another 10-15 minutes. Warm up tortilla on a pan and then add rice bean filling, shredded cheese, diced avocados and cilantro. Roll into a burrito. Serve with sweet potato as a side dish. Serve salsa on the side to dip. Enjoy!

Whenever we go to visit our extended family, we always try  to go to our favourite Ramen Noodle Restaurant called Ajisen Ramen. I decided to try to make a similar soup. It turned out pretty delicious and quite easy to put together.

INGREDIENTS

1 package ramen noodles (20 ounces)

5-6 cups organic vegetable broth

4 garlic cloves minced

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tbsp safflower oil

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp rice vinegar

4 tbsp soy sauce

1 package enoki mushrooms separated

4 cups shiitake mushrooms sliced

4 cups baby bok choy – rinsed and pealed into pieces ends slices off

6 green onions sliced fine

4 organic eggs hard boiled

4 cups frozen corn

1 package firm tofu cut into small square cubes

DIRECTIONS

In a pot heat safflower oil and sesame oil. Sauté the minced garlic and ginger powder on low heat for a few minutes. Add in vegetable broth, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Then add in mushrooms and baby bok choy. Cook for 5 minutes. Add to the broth green onion, frozen corn and tofu. While broth is cooking, in a small pot place eggs with water and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes and then place eggs in cold water. In a kettle boil water. Place ramen noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water on top of noodles. Let stand for 3-4 minutes and then drain noodles in a strainer. Add in ramen noodles and hard boiled eggs into the soup and continue cooking for another 10 minutes until hot. Take ramen soup off stovetop and serve in a large bowl. Enjoy!
