This is a favourite week night meal that everyone can make to their liking. I use black rice as a base and add black beans, chopped fresh tomato, shallots, jalapeños, guacamole, cheese and salsa. For a quick week night meal just fry up some minced beef with mexican seasoning, if you’ve got more time try it with pulled pork in the slow cooker.
I made these zucchini fritters as a bit of a healthier alternative to the boiled egg on two pieces of (gluten-free) toast that I’ve been having for breakfast almost everyday for about two years now.

I’ll do better, promise. Let’s add another winter recipe, a classic minestrone soup with gluten free stock and pasta of course.
I like my soup so thick you could almost eat it with a fork.
A good hearty soup should be chunky and thick not drippy and watery.
