  • Put as much or as little filling as you like in your own little magic edible dish.
  • You can also use your own tortillas and roll into a burrito. Lay tortilla flat and layer ingredients on one half, adding shredded lettuce on top.
  • If you find the sour cream too thick, you can add a little more water and lemon juice for a creamier consistency.
  • Use lots of water when it comes to soaking the sunflower seeds and drain and rinse them until the water runs clear. I highly recommend you soak your nuts and seeds, especially for those who have compromised digestion. The outer coating may create problems for our bodies because they are made of enzyme inhibitors and toxic substances, which cause digestive distress. All of this can be reduced or eliminated by simply giving them a good soaking to bring them to life.
  • Tomatoes contain a wealth of vitamins including A and C and are a good source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium. The vitamin C content can quickly be destroyed, so try cut your tomatoes just before using them to minimise their exposure to air.
  • Mexican is best shared + the simplicity of this dish really makes it a lot of fun and a real joy to eat with your friends and family.
