Kel’s Blissful Black Bean, Rice and Corn Burritos

I’m keeping with my recent theme of vegan dishes with this recipe for a delicious and satisfying meatless burrito. While I can live without the meat, it was hard for me to imagine a burrito without my usual sharp cheddar cheese and sour cream. But after the first bite, I actually did not miss these ingredients a bit – this burrito is muy excelente! Plus it’s easy on the wallet without the additional cost of the meat and dairy ingredients. ¡Olé!

Kel’s Pasta Puttanesca, Vegan Version

My love for olives began when I was less than a year old. When I started teething, I loved to suck on lemons. My parents and grandparents were amazed and started giving me other foods that you would not expect someone so young to like, such as dill pickles, shrimp and yes, olives – I loved them all and still do. Back then, my dad and grandparents would give me the green olives stuffed with pimentos, but since then I’ve branched out and really haven’t met an olive I didn’t like.

The other night I was craving spaghetti with some sort of tomato sauce and decided to make pasta puttanesca, which is full of olives. According to the online version of Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the origin of the word puttanesca is Italian and is short for alla puttanesca, or “in the style of a prostitute.”This sauce, with its olives, capers, garlic and tomatoes, will certainly seduce you, making you happy to go for another round. Since I’m not eating meat right now, I opted to make the Neopolitan version, which does not include anchovies. But feel free to add them to the sauce – it gives it another lusty layer of flavor.
