One of my favourite restaurants is a vibrant, local Mexican called Pinche Pinche. It’s one of my favourite restaurants anywhere, I’m just lucky that it happens to be on my doorstep. This restaurant works for me on a number of levels. The food has really interesting flavour combinations. The Boy is always up for it because he loves their churros. It has a fabulous atmosphere and it has a real neighbourhood restaurant feel (I almost always see someone I know).
But this is a recipe post not a restaurant review so what does Pinche Pinche have to do with today’s recipe? Alongside a huge choice of naturally gluten free dishes they also offer an ‘open burrito’ option – any of the burrito fillings without the flour tortilla wrap. This is Glutenfreeman’s favourite section of the menu.
I’m not sure whether open burritos are a ‘thing’ in home cooking but today’s recipe used to be my ‘go to’ burrito recipe and these days it is still a favourite but without the tortilla. So open burrito it is….
Are you trying to eat healthily? Are you pushed for time on a morning? Do you end up buying lunch? This post is for you.
Finding some time to prepare your own lunch to take to work can save money and is often healthier than buying something whilst at work. Often we have good intentions when it comes to taking lunch but then end up pushed for time and just grabbing something quick whilst out and about.
This week I have made the discovery that The Boy will try most things if they come shaped like a meatball. So, it will come as no surprise to learn that this week most of our meals have been accompanied by meatball like creations. Unfortunately trying and liking are two very different beasts. Vietnamese prawn and rice balls got a definite thumbs-down and he wasn’t too bothered about the lentil and mushroom balls. Tuna meatballs, however, were a completely different story. So, this recipe is a winner in our house….
Over the past few months I have been sharing very basic recipes on the SAVI Nutrition Facebook page. The sort of recipe that is quick to do and only a few steps. I've now decided to bring some of these together on the blog so that you can access everything easily from one place. I'm starting off with an easy midweek 'go to' sauce.
If you have children that are complete pasta monsters then this one is a good way to get plenty of vegetables into their diet. It goes really well with my tuna meatballs too.
