Something for the weekend

Family time and plenty of good food – the two ingredients you need for the perfect lazy weekend…

Jalapeño burrito

By Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula

Serves 4 | Prep 20 mins plus soaking | Cook 5 mins | Calories 609 (per serving)

2 tsp olive oil

1 small red onion, diced

1 large red bell pepper, cut into 5mm (¼in) dice

1 garlic clove, minced

80g (3oz) sliced button or cremini mushrooms

250g (9oz) cooked jasmine or brown rice

60g (2oz) tinned black beans, drained and rinsed

sea salt

4 wholewheat tortillas

150g (5¼oz) shredded romaine lettuce

200g (7oz) vegan guacamole

200g (7oz) tomato salsa

60ml (2floz) Jalapeño Cashew Cream (recipe follows)


300g (10½oz) raw cashews, soaked in water overnight and drained

½-1 medium jalapeño, sliced

juice of ½ a lemon (about 1 tbsp)

kosher salt

1 For the jalapeño cashew cream, in a high-speed blender or food processor, combine the soaked cashews, jalapeño, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Blend until smooth; add 1 tbsp water, if needed, to reach the desired consistency.

2 Store the cashew cream in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

3 For the burrito, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When it shimmers, add the onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft and just beginning to colour, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

4 Add the mushrooms to the pan, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to the bowl with the other vegetables. Stir in the rice and black beans and season with salt.

5 To assemble the burritos, lay out the tortillas on a clean surface. Divide the vegetable-rice mixture evenly among the tortillas, spooning it neatly down the centres. Top with the lettuce, using about a quarter of the amount on each. Spoon the guacamole and salsa over the top, using about a quarter on each. Drizzle with the cashew cream.

6 Tuck in the two sides of the tortillas and, starting from the edge closest to you, roll them up gently but with some pressure to create a neat log. Slice them in half across the middle and serve.
