One person who turned me onto Food Saver is actually my older sister. In the last couple of years she’s gotten into cooking, and is all about preserving stuff that she’s made. She’d send photos of her testing the jar sealers on some guacamole, which we all know can brown incredibly fast, and even a few days later this stuff was still fresh and green!

And what better way to jump back into blogging after a month-long “break” working on my cookbook, than with a new recipe and giveaway! But before we get to them, let me give you a little background on the author and book.

You may not realize it, but you’ve probably seen one of Megan’s beautiful vegan recipe videos on facebook, already! She runs the drool-worthy blog Carrots & Flowers, and 30 Minute Vegan Dinners is her first forray into published cookbooks. And what a convenient title to start with!

Making rice and prepping veggies

Firstly, this book is made up of 75 recipes, some being staples you use throughout the book, and the rest being dinners. Because it’s a dinner cookbook, you don’t have the traditional chapters dividing it up by breakfast, lunch, or dessert. Rather, Megan divides these dinners up by style of cuisine, such as “Southern Comfort Made Simple” and “Speedy Homestyle Italian”.

You’ll find the Street-Style Barbacoa Burrito recipe, that I’m sharing with you today, in the chapter dubbed “Quick & Easy Latin Flair”! To be 100% honest, my assistant and I kinda messed this up because we were making a few recipes at the same time. We diced the mushrooms instead of slicing, but they still turned out deliciously! So, word to the wise, pay closer attention than I when making the burritos.
