Mexican rice tortillas


I haven't been cooking that much in the couple of last weeks, as we've had a weird unusual stretch of business dinners and trips at work, so I've been eating out quite a lot. It can be nice, but I also want to do my own cooking, and all this socialising can be quite draining too. It still feels like you are working, even when eating a meal with colleagues or customers. One meal was really excellent though, cheese ravioli with asparagus and sage butter sauce accompanied by a crispy dry white wine. That I could eat at anytime again! But anyway I hope that it will calm down now a bit after completing a few projects, and I can do more in my own kitchen again.

I managed to make this meal one night, and even though it's nothing spectacular, I enjoyed it very much. Mexican rice is one of my absolute favourites. It's easy, it's cheap and it's very tasty. I made the rice this time with sweetcorn, lentils, red pepper, onion, garlic and chilli, and I served it on a tortilla with lambs lettuce and vegan chipotle mayo. It was a very nice meal, and I will be cooking more this sort of meals towards the summer. Mexican food is also brialliant for a picnic, as the al fresco dining season has now started even in Copenhagen.




Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. Looks lovely. I enjoy some eating out for a change but miss my kitchen too if I am away too long. Love your roses too.

    1. I agree, it's nice to eat out sometimes, but our own kitchens are surely the best places. :)

  2. It is nice to eat out, but i know what you mean with working lunch/evening meals - its always revolves around work and takes a lot more mental energy to be enthused. Your Mexican rice looks really tasty, i'd happily eat that without the tortilla! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean. Let's hope that I'll have less work occasions in the near future. I'm happy just spend my evenings at home.
