Instructions:

Roasted Potatoes:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Chop potatoes into 1-inch cubes and put them in a bowl. Add the other ingredients for the roasted potatoes.

  • Toss well to coat and transfer the potatoes onto the lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.

Cashew Sauce:

  • To make the cashew sauce, simply mix all ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk until smooth and creamy.

Burritos:

  • While the potatoes are in the oven, chop mushrooms, onion, garlic, tomatoes, pepper, avocado, and red cabbage.

  • Heat spray oil in a skillet, add onion, mushrooms, and pepper. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the spices, garlic, tomatoes and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

  • Toast a tortilla and place about 2-3 tbsp each of the veggie mixture, the beans, the roasted potatoes, the avocado, a little red cabbage and cashew sauce onto the tortilla.

  • Roll the burrito up by folding the sides inward and the edge closest to you over the filling, pulling tightly. Enjoy! (Note: Serves 4).
