Taco Taco Burrito Burrito! | ORIGINAL RECIPE


TACO TIME!

I'm a HUGE taco-lover, always have been; so of course, coming up with the ULTIMATE Taco Recipe
has been a priority of mine.
For some time actually; a lot of trial and error๐Ÿ˜‚.

I recently came up with this recipe, after a session of experimentation;
I feel it makes for a very round and savoury taco-flavour.
Even my Non-Vegan Boyfriend LOVES IT!


So, shall we get started?๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ingredients:
1 Red Onion
2-3 Large Garlic-cloves
300g/10.58oz Vegan Meat-Replacement Farse
2 bags of Santa Maria Taco-spice
Smoked Paprika spice
Nutritional Yeast
Vegetable Cooking-Oil
Salt and Pepper
Water

+
Tortilla Chips
Taco Hot Salsa Sauce
Tomatoes (chopped into small cubes)
Taco Wraps
+ and whatever toppings you may desire


How To
Chop Red Onion in two, then into thin half-moons.
Finely chop the Garlic.
Heat up a pan, add cooking oil.
Add Garlic and Onion into the pan.

Fry them in the oil on medium heat, until the onions look semi-translucent and shiny; 
make sure they don't start to colour or burn.

Drizzle 1-2 teaspoons of Smoked Paprika spice, and stir it in.
Then add ca. 2-3 teaspoons of Nutritional Yeast, and stir that in.

Fry it all on high-medium heat for a good 5 minutes; then add the Farse.
Stir it together thoroughly.
Season with sprinkles of Salt and Pepper, and stirfry for a good 5-10 minutes;
feel free to add more Smoked Paprika spice.

Now add water (ca. 3-4dl/10.14l.oz)
(enough to make it stop making that sizzling noise, when it's in the pan).
Then add 1 bag of Taco-spice, stir it in.
Then add the other and repeat.
Feel free to add a little more water as it bakes in it's own juices for a couple of minutes.

Place the Taco Wraps in aluminium foil and heat in the oven for a couple of minutes.

Spread the Salsa Sauce in a thin layer on your wrap, add farse, crush Tortilla Chip into crumbs on top, then the tomatoes, then wrap it up; and VOILร€!

BON APPร‰TIT!

TIP! 
My boyfriend likes to put his wrap in a hot pan, for a few secs, to fuse the wrap shut, 
which is very nifty!

Recipe of the Week | NEW SEGMENT!


RECIPE of the WEEK

I've been flirting with the idea of trying out a new recipe every week, for a little while now.
Like most people, I am a creature of habit; once I find something I like, I keep doing it.
And when it comes to cooking, it can get a little stale eating the same dishes over and over again.
Therefore, each week, I'm going to go on an online recipe quest for new undiscovered faves.
And the best thing is; you don't have to scour for new recipes, I'll be doing it for all of us;  I'll find new recipes; try them out, tell you what I think, and if you see one here that sounds delish, the recipes will be readily available through direct links!
I'll be your personal recipe bloodhound!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

If you have any recipe-suggestions, that you think should be tried out, and enjoyed by more people,
do leave it in a comment below!
And tell me what you think of this little recipe-adventure of mine!๐Ÿ˜Š

Soup Week | Soup Every Dinner For A Week

I've never liked soup.
So of course, I'm doing a whole week of them. Makes sense, right?๐Ÿ˜†

Let me clarify;
Growing up; the soups I had, were all the instant powder kind.
Unsatisfying and always left me hungry.
So whenever people suggested soup for dinner, my instant inner-reaction was that of
"SACRILEGE! That's not dinner! How dare you! Are you trying to starve me to death!?"

Recently however, I had an AHA-moment.
I was sick, and my mom made me tomato-soup from scratch, and OH BOY, was it good!
And so filling!๐Ÿ˜ฒ
Safe to say, I was speechless.

After said tomato-epiffany, I went on a search-quest for more delicious soups,
which is how I got here; a week worth of soup-adventures!


Monday
Carrot Soup
This recipe turned out yummier than I had imagined.
Way more flavourful.
It had carrots, yellow paprika, yellow onion, garlic, gingerroot and chili in it.
And surprisingly; orange-juice.
RECIPE HERE
(sorry that it's in Norwegian๐Ÿ˜ฑ google translate?)


Tuesday
I didn't feel well today;
so no dinner, unfortunately. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Therefore, I'll add another day, and keep up with soups til Monday next week! ๐Ÿ˜‹


Wednesday
Onion Soup
In stead of wine, I used white wine vinegar (I'm allergic to pure white wine), which, in hindsight, should have been in waaaaay smaller portions.
Maybe only a tablespoon, not 1dl... ๐Ÿ˜‚ as the vinegary flavour took over the entire dish.
Despite this, it tasted amazing, BUT, not in huge amounts.
But as a small appetizer with sourdough-bread for dipping; definitely a winner.
If you're making it as soup though; I'd recommend 86'ing the white wine/white wine vinegar, and trying this recipe for only the onion flavours (which smelled BOMB, until I added the vinegar and fucked it all up ๐Ÿ˜†)

RECIPE HERE


Thursday
Taco Soup
This soup was SOOO GOOD!
Amazing Mexican flavours, and from scratch!
I never thought I'd be able to do that! Making taco-deliciousness from scratch! ๐Ÿ˜€
It wasn't spicy at all, and instead capsulated the chilli-flavour to perfection!๐Ÿ˜‹

RECIPE HERE


Friday
Lentil Soup
Asian cuisine is a big fave of mine, and this soup did not dissapoint.
Especially good with the vegan filets I used in them.
(I gently stir-fried them for a couple of minutes, before adding to the soup)

RECIPE HERE


Saturday
The soup from yesterday lasted until today, and I was too strapped for time to make another;
before I was to go to a 90's Party๐Ÿ˜€
Here's a picture:๐Ÿ˜ƒ
It was a lot of fun๐Ÿ˜
(ESPECIALLY drawing on ALARMING eyebrows with my eyeliner๐Ÿ˜‚)



Sunday
Veggie Soup
I was so hungry when I ate this, so even though the flavour was not the greatest,
it did, however, fill the tum.
Very bland and overpoweringly kohlrabi/leek'ey.
Would not make again.

RECIPE HERE


Monday
Sweet Potato Soup
OMG, this soup is YUMMY!
The gingerroot, garlic, chilli and pomegranate come together in a flavour-explosion of the mouth!
The coconut milk makes it creamy, but keeps from tasting too coconutty
(not a fan of raw coconut flavour myself)
SOOOOO GOOD!
MUST MAKE AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN!!

RECIPE HERE




Tuesday
Minestrone Soup
I had never had Minestrone Soup before, and I was a bit apprehensive about it maybe turning out bland, flacour-wise. I was pleasantly surprised. It's not a new fave, but it was okay.

RECIPE HERE

Soups ranked by how much I liked them:
1. Sweet Potato Soup
2. Carrot Soup
3. Taco Soup
4. Onion Soup
5. Lentil Soup
6. Minestrone Soup
7. Veggie Soup

To anyone planning to have their own soup-week, I'd recommend making sure to get some bread in there as well. Not necessarily with the soups for dinner, but definitely overall.
Just to make sure your body gets something a bit "meatier" than only liquids during the week.


Did YOU try any of the recipes?
How was it?
