Original post by @maxlamanna on instagram.
This instagram user has a lot of recipies for ‘recycling’ vegetable scraps from other recipies. This one is specificially for reusing the stem of broccoli, and makes a great burrito filling. The filling is very filling and can also be re-heated easily in a frying pan if you end up making too much.

These amounts produce 6 burrito fillings, serves 2 people.

|Tomato puree||1 Tbsp|
|Tamari sauce (or soy sauce)||1 Tsp|
|Paprika powder||1 Tsp|
|Cumin powdget||1 Tsp|
|Yeast (flakes)||1 Tsp|
|Lime juice||1/2 Lime|
|Olive oil||1 Tbsp|

- Fry on a high fire, stir regularly until done.
To know when you are done you kindof have to eye-ball the result. What you are aiming for is a red, slightly brownish, cohesive lump of meat. As you cook the meat the lentils will break down due to the stirring, this is what binds the whole together.
