Making Pickles Quick – Burrito bowl style!

A quick pickle is a beautiful thing.

Very different from your traditional pickle, all we want to do is add a touch of acidity and seasoning to preserve the crispy flavours of the red onion while also softening the spice of the jalapeno.

Just a few splashes of vinegar and a sprinkle of salt are enough to transform them into the perfect garnish.

If you’re an avid home pickler, of course, feel free to use up what you have on hand or your preferred pickling method.

An even quicker sauce! 

All good burrito bowls need a good sauce; if you’re looking for something super easy and backed with flavour, a lime mayo is what you’ll want.

All you need is mayo and one lime (plus a pinch of salt)

You’ll want to add the zest of 1 lime plus half the juice. The zest is going to be, well – zestier, giving it more of a punch.

If you’re looking to get the most out of your citrus, a proper microplane is going to be your best friend.
