Tip of Stefano:

Wraps Burrito or Mexican tortilla for genuine Mexican food

Tortilla is a word that is used in both Mexican and Spanish cuisine, but which means something different in each country. A Spanish tortilla is a thick omelette made with egg, potatoes and olive oil.  The Mexican tortilla (also called a burrito), which we will be using here, is made from maize or wheat flour. The Mexican tortilla (burrito) is a type of unleavened flat and round bread. It is perfect for putting fillings on and then rolling up. Tortillas are delicious when you feel like a Mexican-style meal, but in the Western kitchen there are also plenty of great dishes involving the Mexican tortilla. You can fill tortillas with whatever you want, and the variations are endless. This recipe for a burrito (tortilla) with a seitan and avocado filling is a vegan dish and is refreshingly spicy.

At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan. Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
