New favourite meal

Not a lot has been happening in the Withnall household this week. Christy has been attending tennis camp in the morning and then they’ve been swimming and playing. I’ve been working on catching up on last years Project Life album – have ordered the remaining photos – just need to journal what I can remember :-). I’v also got this years album all set up and am determined not to get so far behind this year.

Anyway, today I thought I’d share our new favourite family meal – courtesy of Lisa at Bake Bike Blog. I’ve made a buritto bowl before – which is similar to this but instead of being in a bowl it’s served in a wrap.

Start by cooking some brown rice or get one of the precooked packets.


Then I sauted mushrooms with zuchinni and tomatos (from our garden). I would have added onion but Amy doesn’t like it. Basically you can add in whatever veggies you have available.


Then I added some frozen corn.


And a can of mexican chilli beans (Lisa added beans and seasoning but I’m more of a lazy cook :-)).


Lookin’ good but a bit liquidy. The first time I made this I also added a handful of baby spinach for some extra goodness.


Add the brown rice and magically an extra liquid disappears :-).


Now it’s time to prepare the wraps. Take your favourite tortillias, heat and add some sour cream.


Add filling and top with some cheese.


Then roll and enjoy. The mixture is yummy on it’s own as well. Thanks for the inspiration Lisa. Yet another of your recipes to added to our family favourites.

    oh I am so pleased that you liked it! It really is one of those meals that you can throw in whatever you have available!!!

    Ps – I wish I was at tennis camp! I have such fond memories of such camps when I was younger!!!

    Yum, I am going to make this for my parents tomorrow night when they come over I think Lisa needs to make an E book of all her recipes!

    I love any type of mexican food concoction! This looks delish! I do similar variations depending what I have on hand, I’ve not done rice before. I alter it occasionally and make more Italian like and put it over whole wheat pasta. Stuff like this I make in big batches, divide up into single portion sizes, put it in sandwich bags and freeze so I have a quick lunch ready to go. Thanks for the link! 🙂

    I am in the mood for Mexican now….I love how you always cook homemade meals for your family and that you can pick fresh from the garden!

    This sounds yummy. Might try this but of course I will have to add some jalapenos for Noel! You know how he likes his mexican extra spicy 🙂
