While your veggies are cooking throw two cups of rice into the rice cooker.
When everything is cooked, it is your turn to dress up your burrito any way you like and get creative. I add avocado, home made pico de Gallo, and fresh cilantro.
4 cloves of garlic
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 cans of garbanzo beans half drained
1/2 cup of tahini
1/2 tablespoon of Mediterranean spice sea salt McCormick gourmet
1/2 a tablespoon of paprika
1/2 a tablespoon of basil
1/2 a tablespoon of oregano
Put the oil, lemon, cilantro, and the cloves of garlic in and blend till the garlic is minced very small. Add the garbanzo beans, tahini, and the seasoning into the food processor. Put the hummus in an air tight container and place it in the fridge to set. Consume with in 7 days.
1 1/2 cups of yellow popcorn kernels
1/2 teaspoon of Lowry's seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon of paprika
1 cup of jalapeños from a jar
Place some oil and the jalapeños in a big pot and fry them till they start to turn a little brown. Once the jalapeños are browning add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all around. The oil should be enough to cover half of the kernels. As the popcorn pops move the pot around to keep the kernels moving so it doesn't burn. This makes a lot of popcorn so it's perfect for a movie night with friends or family!
Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes
1 cup of gluten free flour ( I personally use King Arthur Flour )
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of nutmeg
1 cup of your favorite non-dairy milk
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons of agave
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl till the lumps have been mixed in.
Placing your pan on medium heat grease your pan.
Take a Half cup and scoop the batter onto the pan.
Wait till there are bubbles around the edges and a little in the center and then the pancake should be ready to flip over.
After about 2 - 3 minutes on the other side the pancake should be ready to serve.
I topped my pancake with a little Vegan butter from earth balance and drizzled it with maple syrup. Finishing it off sprinkling chia seeds and coconut flakes on top. You can dress up your pancakes with berries or chocolate chips or however you want!

2 1/4 cup of King Arthurs gluten free flour
1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line the muffin container with liners.
2. Add the ingredients from above into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
3. With an ice cream scoop scoop the batter in the muffin liner filling it to the top.
4. With a spoon smooth the top of the muffin I learned this because unlike normal muffins as the batter bakes it will not soften and round, It maintains its shape.
5. Bake for about 20 minutes checking the inside of the batter with a toothpick. If there is batter on the toothpick keep baking till the toothpick come out clean.
6. Let the muffins cool a little and enjoy with some oat milk.
