Oh my Burrito!!

I have missed burritos. A lot. So when I saw some rice paper at the store I thought, hey maybe I can make a burrito with a rice paper!

What do you need before you have a burrito?  You need cheese, salsa, olives and re-fried beans. Dairy doesn’t sit well with me, but I love cheese. Cashew Cheese has become a favorite around my table.

 20150513_161135Take some raw cashews and soak them for at least 2 hours. Drain them and put them in your food processor or blender with nutritional yeast (for the cheesy flavor), garlic powder, black pepper, salt, apple cider vinegar and some lemon juice and blend it all together.

 You’ll end up getting a smoother cheese using a high power blender like a vita-mix, but a food processor works just as well if you don’t mind having less creamy spreadable cheese.

This is the rice paper I used. You place the paper in warm water for 10 seconds, place it on a plate, add all the toppings you desire, wrap it up then roll it in brown rice flower.

Here is a photo walk through of the process I went through.

I double wrapped them because Just one layer was a flimsy shield for all my burrito fill-ins. Rolling the first layer in brown rice flower, helps with transparency. Without rolling them in brown rice flower, you can see all the filling, and it just feels weird not to have a wrapping on burrito innards.

Still, it’s a great meal as my toddler can testify.
