Sara Foster, owner of Foster's Market in Durham, North Carolina, puts a new twist on the traditional Mexican burrito. For a no-fuss brunch, Sara recommends preparing as many of the elements as you can in advance.
If you've got a long day ahead of you, this substantial but easy-to-prepare meal is just the ticket to make sure you eat well. And if you know things will be busy, these breakfast burritos can be set up the night before and made in 10 minutes or less the next morning.
From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
A piquant soup exudes flavors culled from the Mexican kitchen, from a cumin-laced broth to a roasted tomatillo and cilantro pesto. Cilantro's pungent fragrance partners well with fruity tomatillos in a lively pesto. The mixture offsets the spiciness of the cumin and jalapeno in this delectable soup.
