I ate this WAY too fast, and ate too much as well, I had to lay in bed in a coma-like state after to recooperate.

It’s vegetarian and amazingly easy and quick to make. I made the whole amount so there was leftovers for the week as well.! YUM

Recipe :

Cooking spray
1 cup chopped green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
1 (12-ounce) package meatless fat-free crumbles (such as Lightlife Smart Ground)
1 (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
8 cups baked corn tortilla chips (6 ounces)
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 cup diced peeled avocado (about 1 medium)
3/4 cup vertically sliced red onion
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Add bell pepper, chopped onion, and crumbles; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove 1 chile and 1 tablespoon sauce from can; reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Chop chile; add chile, sauce, beans, and tomatoes to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro. Arrange 1 1/3 cups chips on each of 6 plates. Top each serving with 1 cup bean mixture, 1/3 cup lettuce, about 2 1/2 tablespoons avocado, 2 tablespoons onion, 2 tablespoons cheese, and 1 tablespoon sour cream.

[Also I just cayenne pepper instead of the chipotle peppers in the recipe, since I do not like spicy foods]

Day 332: Put the yogurt down and step away

Day 332: Put the yogurt down and step away


After yesterday’s admittedly quite effort free shot I decided to stop by the shops on the way home and get a prop for tonight. We’d had some food brought down to our department, after some sort of conference where lunch was provided, and the desert was mini doughnuts and chocolate sauce. I suddenly had the idea that it’d be quite fun to have a shot of me with chocolate sauce all round my mouth. I pinched what was left of the sauce but there wasn’t very much (plus it tasted rank) so my aim was to get some more at the shops.

Fail. All out. Instead I was given the option of custard or yogurt so I went for the healthy option. Two tubs of all-natural, organic yogurt later I discovered that that stuff can make quite a mess, can be very cold coming out of the fridge and doesn’t film the way I thought it would. Instead I went for one of my back up shots I used for focusing and played about with the iris again, which I always enjoy doing.

Looking back on it I should maybe have realised that having a lot of white stuff round my mouth might look a bit dodgy to the uninformed observer…

Rice again :P :P

Rice again :P :P

Rice sandwich 😛
Saw years ago @ MOS burger, they have rice burgers but never tried. I had some leftover rice AGAIN! 😛

recipe: (from comment below)
The best rice for making these is Japanese I think, or shortgrain rice as it sticks together better. Surinam rice, just forget it…
I use thai fragrant rice, already a bit difficult.

I use a stainless steel ring to make the rice into a cake (need to put water in the spoon, on the ring, and the plate, etc, or else there’s more rice on those things than left in your cake haha)

You can also wet your palms and roll big ball of rice between your palms to make a round patty, squeeze it really hard, so it won’t fall apart when and after frying.

Heat some oil on non-stick pan, medium heat, and place the cakes in the oil, it needs to really fry it till a bit golden, so it stays together 😛 It just takes patience, becaues burnt rice is actually quite nice, like rice crackers 🙂

Flip them over, wait for the other side to fry also. I brush some sauce (soy sauce, five spices, sugar and sesame oil). When the bottom is almost ready, i placed ham and sliced cheese on top of one to warm and melt.

When I transferred it to the plate, I add some chopped cilantro, ketchup and mayonaise 🙂 My top one wanted to fall apart 😛 but it managed to stay till the end 🙂

Hope you will try it 🙂
