Okay, I hope I’m not the only one who gets jealous and hungry when I scroll through food pictures on Instagram. My foodie friends create amazing things like scrumptious buddha bowls, cakes made from cauliflower and mouthwatering vegan burgers. I must admit, I’ve been wanting to try a veggie burger for some time now, but just haven’t been able to make one because I’m always missing at least one ingredient at home, be it tomato, lettuce or burger buns.

On my birthday I went to a vegan restaurant. Naturally, I chose the recommended black bean burger with veggies and vegan mayonnaise.

… I cannot even begin to tell you how delicious it was. It was tender, flavorful and hearty. Every bite was a delight. Ever since then, I’ve been on the search for the perfect black bean burger recipe. I looked up a bunch of recipes on the internet, but I was always missing a couple of things from each recipe, so I tried creating my own.

I was at the German embassy yesterday for my visa appointment. My dad and I left the house at about 5.30 am in the morning and had breakfast in the car, all to avoid the oh-so-famous Bangkok rush hour traffic. Well, we arrived at the embassy about an hour too early. That wouldn’t have been so bad, if I weren’t nervous and freaking out and dreading every minute of waiting. When I’m nervous and excited, I tend to talk a lot. Like, a lot. It probably annoyed the heck out of everyone in the embassy, including my dad, but I couldn’t help it. Then we were called into the interview room, where I gave the embassy staff all the required documents, answered her questions, got my fingerprints scanned and then we were done in less than 10 minutes. Ah the feeling of relief!

Now there’s actually nothing more to do than to just wait, wait and wait till I get to pick up my visa in a couple of weeks. So I’m back to creating things in the kitchen, making huge messes (and making my mom mad), taking pictures and blogging again! Feels so good to be back. 

Since I am going to become a full-time medical student in a month, it’s important to me that I keep my food recipes simple, quick and easy. Oh, and don’t forget filling, you can’t study on an empty stomach! Now here’s where the burritos come in. There are a couple reasons why they make the absolutely perfect dish for students (and other busy people):

  1. These burritos come together in less than 35 minutes. 
  2. Throw in whatever leftovers you have, rice, veggies, meat, cheese etc. as tasty extras.
  3. They freeze well up to 3 weeks.
  4. They’re super filling and will keep you feeling satisfied for hours.
  5. They’re delicious.
