VOTC – Cheezee Rice & Bean Burrito

It might not be the most attractive picture, but this dish was quick, easy, and tasted amazing. Simple enough – just a can of pinto beans, rice, cheezee sauce and a few other things, mix it up…eat and enjoy!

VOTC – Wheatball Sandwich

Another recipe using up the rest of the Wheatballs and Cheezee Sauce and also making a new batch of Marinara Sauce! These are super fast to assemble and it tasted fantastic! It might be tiny, but it’s filling, flavorful, and I recommend toasting the bread (yum!)

VOTC – Very Veggie Burgers

Burgers can be fun and easy, or difficult and complex. This was so easy. I need to make these again because they came together quickly. The ingredients are simple and usually something you have on hand (or can at least plan ahead). Flavor was great too as well as the texture. These save well (refrigerator though, not freezer) but they’d be great for a weekday dinner. It makes 4 burgers, palm size…so plan accordingly.

I prefer my burgers bunless usually – I’m so weird about breads. I ended up trying it both with Ketchup and with German Mustard…the mustard won. The flavor of the mustard went very well with everything in the burger. Awesome dish!

VOTC – Curried Tofu Wraps

This wrap sounded fantastic, and it was. It also involved two recipes form the book.

First was the Cheapskate Chutney, which had me very nervous. Mostly because I’d never atempted a chutney before (I cheat and go store bought because they’re so good!). But, I gave this one a try and was really pelased with my results. It had a nice kick of spicy followed by an overall sweetness. Future reference, get crushed pineapple, I bought the chunks and was then trying to mince it…it turned messy and well, overall I thought my chutney was too chunky! Other than my personal mishap, it was great and easy!

The curried tofu poriton of the recipe was awesome. I  love curry and all the textures went amazingly well together. Soft, crunchy, chewy, it rocked. Very easy to make and can be served so many ways. There were a few optional pieces of the recipe and what I decided to do was go simple and eat this the way I prefer my wraps. So intead of a flour tortilla wrap I used Collard Greens. That was great!image

Another optional idea listed was to mix the curried tofu with rice and either eat as is or, again, in a wrap. I plan to make this again going through all the optional pieces to see which I like best. So, we’ll have to touch base again when I do that.
