Video: Chinese Fajitas

Chinese duck

For this week’s recipe, we wanted to do something a little different. We came up with a fusion of two of our favourite cuisines:  Chinese fajitas.

This is a pretty fun meal to make, all the more so because it’s totally unexpected. But if you can make duck pancakes, we figured you can also make duck fajitas. And why shouldn’t satay sauce go with black beans? As it turns out, it does – very nicely indeed.

Restaurant Review: Wahaca

Eating at Wahaca

We don’t normally do reviews for places that don’t serve burgers, but Wahaca definitely deserves a nod. It’s one of our go-to places to eat when we’re out at Bluewater or even in London, especially if we happen to be by the Southbank. So, this week I’m reviewing Wahaca, along with a few photos from our last visit!

Vine Recipe: Sweetcorn Loaded Nachos with Cheese Sauce

As you know by now, we love Mexican food here at VegBurge! That’s why we just had to try making this dish, which contains fantastic flavours with home cooking to create a much healthier version of a traditional recipe.

You start off by making your own nachos, which is one of our favourite things to do anyway – it’s so much healthier than the real thing and takes very little time to do. You can add your own seasoning, whatever you like, though this time we chose to use corn tortillas and leave them plain. They are tasty enough as they are!

Vine post: Loaded Mexican Muffins

This little recipe is so amazing, and I can’t tell you how much we loved eating it. We LOVE Mexican food anyway, so these Mexican muffins were definitely an idea we wanted to pursue. We had them for lunch, but you could easily make this a breakfast item or even serve it as part of a bigger meal at dinner.

Georgia’s Choice Mexican Bean Bakes

This week we found something completely new in the supermarket! That’s not a very regular occurrence these days, so it was pretty exciting (and this is probably why I don’t get invited to many dinner parties). These Georgia’s Choice Mexican bean bakes looked too good to ignore, and the chance to try a new brand was something I just couldn’t pass up.

The Vauxhall Inn – Spiced Mexican Melt Burger

Vauxhall Inn

After a long day filming a TV pilot recently, J and I were dropped back by the production company at an easy to reach location: the Vauxhall Inn, which just so happens to be a restaurant with a pretty good reputation. They also have a dedicated vegetarian section on the menu, which is more than enough to impress me – so we decided to skip the cooking and give it a go.

Sainsbury’s Sweetcorn Fritters

Recently we tried the so-called Mexican sweetcorn fritters from Sainsbury’s, which comes as part of a range that we’ve been enjoying (particularly their nacho cheese parcels). They are rated as spicy on the packaging, but in spite of my dislike of spicy food, that didn’t put me off. You see, I’ve always been a fan of sweetcorn based fried goods. Sweetcorn fingers and similar items took the place of fish fingers when I was a kid, and generally speaking, I love the taste of sweetcorn no matter how it comes. Basically, I just had to know what these tasted like.

Brands Hatch Veggie Burgers

Brands Hatch Burger

So this week I’ll be reviewing something a little closer to home… I’ve volunteered at Brands Hatch since around 2006, and worked there since 2014. Somehow, however, I’ve never tried their veggie burgers. How is that possible?

Well, first of all, you can only get them at a couple of places. There’s the Grand Prix Terrace in the paddock area, which is only accessible to those with passes on big race weekends. For the rest of the time, you can get there simply by walking through the tunnel or from the lower paddock. The other fast food-style serving areas are not always open, particularly during the week, so the GPT is generally your best option.
