meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

Burrito Ingredients:
  • Sushi Rice
  • 5 Nori Wrappers
  • 15 oz. can Black Beans (do not drain)
  • 15 oz. can organic Corn (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 small Onion (chopped) 
  • Salsa (optional)
Sushi Rice:
  • 3 cups Water 
  • 2 1/2 cups Sushi Rice
  • Juice from 1 Lime
  • 2 tbsp. Rice Vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar 
  • 1 tsp. Onion
  • 1 tsp. Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

Directions: 
  1. Mix together Water & Rice
  2. Close & lock lid
  3. Set Pressure Valve to Sealing
  4. Select Rice setting
  5. Manual release pressure for 10 minutes, then Quick release
  6. Remove the inner pot from IP to help Rice cool quicker
  7. While Rice is still hot, stir in remaining Sushi Rice ingredients
  8. Set aside until cool to handle & prep fillings 
  9. Meanwhile, prepare your filling ingredients
  10. Spread 1/2 cup of Rice in an even layer all over one of the Nori Wrapper, leaving about an 1" space on one end of the wrapper
  11. Layer ingredients at the opposite end of the Burrito (not the 1" gap end)
  12. Using a Sushi mat, roll Burrito like you would Sushi
  13. Wet 1" gap lightly to seal roll
  14. Allow to sit for 14 minutes so Nori Wrapper can soften by absorbing moisture from the Rice before eating or place in fridge until ready to eat
  15. For ease in eating, wrap Burrito in tin foil

Hoff Thoughts: Any ingredients can be used, let your imagination run wild.  Makes a great on the go lunch or snack - which is why this serves so much, I'm currently eating Sushi Burritos daily at work.

DIY Conditioning Dandruff Hair Treatment

DIY Conditioning Dandruff Hair Treatment
Treatments: Numerous, depends on hair length

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Avocado Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Jojoba Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Hemp Seed Oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree Oil

Directions:
  1. Pour all ingredients into a small plastic container
  2. Shake to combine
  3. Scoop out some treatment and apply to hair scalp to ends
  4. Let sit for at least 20 minutes
  5. Wash out

Hoff Thoughts: I like to use this hair treatment once a week.  I apply it in the morning, put my hair up in a top knot and go about my day - mind you on a day that I'm not leaving the house.  The Tea Tree Oil makes this a nice treatment for those with dandruff.  If that's not a concern for you (lucky duck), leave out or replace with your fav essential oil.
