Mexican One Pot

This easy peasy mexican one pot is healthy, spicy and so soulful! I’ve made it several times, and is one of my favourite one pots, because it’s so easy to make, but also full of proteins and is antiinflammatoric. You can eat it as it is, as it is super filling. The recipe below serves 4 persons. Continue reading “Mexican One Pot”

Vegetarian Dining in Odense: El Torito

El Torito is the second most visited restaurant by me, when I’m in Odense 😉

It is a Mexican restaurant at Vestergade 21 in Odense, their food is made up by Danish commodities and Mexican spices. I love their vegetarian options very much, especially their vegetarian burrito, I’ve got mostly. I feel I generously can recommend you to visit this place for its vegetarian meals. The only thing is their service – if they can do something to better the services, this place will be perfect 😉 Continue reading “Vegetarian Dining in Odense: El Torito”

Mexican Inspired Rice with a Middle East Touch

Hello everyone ❤

Here is a very easy, but yummy meal, that I made some years ago. I’ve made it several times, as it is very good as a lunch, and you can add any kind of veggies, and combine it with some falafels and/or avocado. I love avocados btw! 😀

Here we go!

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of rice (I used parboiled rice with wild rice)
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into smaller pieces
  • ½ cup of peas
  • ½ cup of corn
  • ¼ cup of red pepper (if you like it, you can add about ½ cup instead)
  • 2 tsp. of tomato puree
  • Some salt
  • 2 tsp. red chili powder (can be reduced if you don’t want it to be so spicy)
  • 3-4 tsp. of crushed almonds
  • 1 tbs. olive oil

Directions:

  1. First, cook the rice as per prescription and drain.
  2. Preheat a pan/pot and add the vegetables with 1 tbs. of water (except the tomatoes), and let it cook.
  3. Once cooked add the tomato puree, the cut tomatoes, salt, chili and almonds. Mix it well and let it cook for another 4-5 mins.
  4. Finally add the olive oil and turn off the stove. Just keep the mixture hot.
  5. Add the cooked rice into the mixture, and mix it all together properly.
  6. Serve with some cut avocado and falafel – this gives the whole dish a good texture and taste 🙂

Enjoy 😉
