Sometimes I just like to veg out.

People are always asking me if I am a vegetarian. I am not. Not officially, anyways. I do eat meat every now and then... just not very often. It is not a decision I made for political reasons nor does it have anything to do with personal beliefs. I just don't like cooking with meat. It's kind of icky. In fact, I don't even like steak! *gasp*

This is pretty much why I started getting into cooking proper veg meals, instead of the pasta and sauce thing I used to do. My god, am I glad I did.

People, let me tell you about something that will change your life. It is called the "Three Sisters Burrito" from the Rebar cookbook. HOLY SHIT, THIS MEAL IS DELICIOUS.

It's roasted butternut squash, corn and cilantro with some chipotle and ancho chile flavours in it. I'm just going to go ahead and call it a FLAVOUR EXPLOSION.

AND it is even BETTER the next day after all the flavours have soaked in a bit. I just ate this for lunch, and I am telling the truth when I say that my day just got 1 million times better.

I would marry this burrito. (If it would have me.)

Go! Make it! Eat it! Then cry some tears of joy.

(PS: I don't bother making the red sauce. I just use salsa and it is the yums.)

I never have the patience for squash, but perhaps I will try to give it another chance. I do have that cookbook after all.

I recommend anything by Isa Chandra Moskovitz for veg. recipes...Her's are vegan and fantastic.
