Vegan Burrito-style Sandwich

It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly.  The past few months underfolded a crazy sequence of stressful events; some slightly scary, some sad… but thankfully, all rectified now!  Luckily everyone involved is now back to normal and life continues full of smiles and optimism.

I have a great and simple rice vegetable burrito for you today! Gorgeous and child friendly (both my little ones stole my lunch after saying they didn’t want it for themselves, then had the left over rice for their tea as well!)


1 cup rice

1 cup frozen vegetables (i used peas, carrots and sweetcorn)

1 tsp onion granules

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp parsley

1/2 tsp garlic salt (and pepper to taste)

1/2 cup mild salsa


pitta bread


Boil the rice with the veg.  Once cooked, drain and mix in the herbs, spices and salsa. 

Split the pitta and place a gratutious amount of houmous on the bottom layer.  Pile the rice mix on top of the houmous and add a dessert spoon of salsa.

Slice and enjoy!

Sundried tomato and soya bean sandwich

This sandwich was created in a ‘supermarket sweep’ style frantic moment. After realising there was nothing in the prepacked section for little old me when stocking up for a spur of the moment family picnic I came up with this:

Grab yourself a baguette, add a light layer of vitalite (or other vegan margarine), a dollop or two of tomato pickle/relish, a handful of mixed salad, 5-6 sun-dried tomatoes and sprinkle a healthy amount of dried soya beans over the top. Chop in half and devour!

It was so good I remade again the very next day 🙂
