Cheese For Burritoes

This recipe and recipe idea was originally posted on January 6, 2011:

“We heated up canned pinto beans and seasoned them with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, sauteed onions, and a few more seasonings. Then we mashed them so they could be in bean burrito consistency. (That means you don’t add too much water while warming and seasoning the beans so it won’t be too runny.)”

Here’s the Almond Cheese Recipe:
Almond Cheese:
1 c. Water
3/4 c. Almonds
1 tbs. Tahini
3 Tbs. Yeast Flakes
1 1/4 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 c. Pimentos
2 tbs. Lemon Juice

Blend on high until smooth.

The idea is taken from our cafeteria’s trusted cooked book: Country Life. If you don’t have this cookbook, you should get it because the recipes that I’ve used so far come out like they’re supposed to! It’s obvious that Mrs. Diane Fleming really did work in vegan restaurants before writing this cookbook.
