[john] the ultimate
[lauren] are we even on camera right now? [lauren] it’s been better to say we’re not on wide
[john] hello. [john] hey guys it’s john. [lauren] and lauren from hot for food [john] and today is a [john] particularly interesting day. not a holiday, [john] but it’s
[lauren] it’s kind of a holiday. [john] a holiday for some [lauren] does anyone know what we’re referring to? [lauren] i hope so. it’s april 20, aka 4/20 y’all [lauren] and we decided we would do a new challenge for the month, [lauren] and hmm, what could it be? [john] let’s call it the vegan munchies challenge. [john] munch on. [lauren] yea, okay so the last challenge we did was the vegan taco challenge. [lauren] i won by a landslide i think, uhh [lauren] butternut squash tacos versus john’s breakfast tacos [lauren] people liked both, but generally speaking, people went for mine, [lauren] i think you’re right, it was the avocado man.
[john] so we didn’t prepare for this challenge, [lauren] we’re just
[[john] it’s almost like [john] kinda like a RECIPE?! but like a lazy man’s recipe video. [lauren] to be honest, we decided we would do this at the last second. we had something else planned, and then i was like [lauren] it’s 4/20, hello. the vegan munchies challenge, go. [lauren] i thought of doing, umm [lauren] have you heard of these things called freakshakes? [john] no.
[lauren] it’s basically this monstrosity of a milkshake that has like, random shit on top. [lauren] it’s crazy, i think it’s some kind of internet thing, or maybe some restaurant in the US makes one? [lauren] so i’m gonna make basically like a milkshake and i’m just gonna put like [lauren] a layer of like chocolate sauce, then i’m gonna put like, [lauren] pretzels! and i don’t even know. peanut butter cups and just like make it look stupid. [lauren] cos we have ice-cream in the freezer so yea. [john] go nuts!
[lauren] alright. [john] you gotta go simple, and that’s what i’m doing here and that’s gonna bring me a victory. [john] do i have to reveal?
[lauren] oh wait, he’s a big talker and he hasn’t won, okay. [john] i have lost twice in a row, i will give you that. [john] box mac and cheese, [john] will be my key to victory. [john] and i’ve got tortillas, i’ll leave it at that and then let’s [lauren] a taco! you can’t make a taco again. [john] oh i will not be making a taco, don’t you worry. [lauren] so look we’ve got a cool mason jar, [lauren] and then this is gonna be like, all stacked up with stuff. [lauren] what are you doing? [john] so i’m making a mac and cheese burrito here, [john] i think peas and carrots in the mac and cheese is a little weird, [john] that’s what comes with the instant mac and cheese so i’m taking them out, [john] can’t tell me what to do. [john] so i’m going to boil that for 8 minutes, and get started on my burrito. [john] just gonna brown some veggie sausage in the pan, this is gonna get added to the mac and cheese. [john] gonna finely chop some red onion, [john] i’m also gonna add some pickled jalapenos, [john] to dip the burrito in, i’m going to make a spicy ketchup which is just two parts ketchup, one part your favourite hot sauce. [john] now it’s time to mix up the mac and cheese with the cheese sauce. [john] so if you add a little bit of water to the bottom of the pan, it’ll help you pick up all those brown crispy bits. [john] it’s all gonna be extra flavour for the mac and cheese burritos. [john] and then we’re gonna stir it all together. [john] as always, we’re gonna add a little bit of freshly cracked pepper, [john] alright, so this thing’s just moving along swimmingly,
[lauren] looks pretty good, can i taste it? [john] it does look good. can you?
[lauren] you always taste my food before it’s done. [lauren] mm! [lauren] well, in a weird way, these are gonna compliment each other because we got dinner and dessert here. [john] true. [lauren] i’m gonna start by melting chocolate chips and coconut oil for a chocolate sauce. [lauren] once everything’s just melted, take it off the heat so you don’t overcook it, [lauren] in this pot, i’m just gonna heat together frozen strawberries to make a strawberry sauce. [lauren] just gonna mash these a little bit. [lauren] and i’m just gonna chop up some salted peanuts, [lauren] alright, i’m also gonna use these peanut butter cups that i got, [lauren] i’ve never had these before. [lauren] i think we’ll just cut them in quarters and they’ll go on the top. [lauren] so i’m gonna take what i have left of this vanilla ice-cream, and blend it with frozen bananas. [lauren] so there’s our first layer. [lauren] and i’m just gonna store this in the freezer and make my chocolate layer. [lauren] so now i’ve got peanut butter chocolate ice-cream, [lauren] i’ve got leftover coconut milk that i’m gonna add to thin this out. [john] alright we’re rock and rolling here. heating up my tortillas to make it easier to roll. [john] the mac and cheese into it, umm how are you doing? [lauren] i’m ready. my stuff’s just in the freezer.
[john] oh, she’s ready. so [lauren] let’s assemble! [john] i guess so. [john] i’m really going to enjoy watching you eat that. [lauren] yea, uh, i haven’t really figured out the how you eat it part. [lauren] it looks amazing though, it is epic! [john] you have to eat it in confidence
[lauren] it is, it’s definitely a freak. [john] you know what?
[lauren] mm! [john] we do both win in this situation cos we have salty savoury, and then an awesome dessert. [lauren] this is crazy man. [john] shall we?
[lauren] mhm. [john] what do you think? lemme know your thoughts [lauren] it’s obviously gonna be good,
[john] the flat top is awesome. [lauren] we haven’t even used it yet
[john] it actually got it flat, crispy like a burrito. [john] can’t forget to try the spicy ketchup
[lauren] oh yea. [lauren] it’s already pretty spicy though. [lauren] with the jalapenos. [lauren] i don’t know, these go very well together obviously [john] the nice thing is, they both were super quick. [lauren] mhm. [john] and if you got some tv shows to get back to, some video games [john] some cat watching, i don’t know what you do. [lauren] then these are a perfect snack to go with it. [lauren] alright, you know how it works, you leave a comment below with your vote for who should win the vegan munchies challenge [lauren] is it gonna be my vegan freakshake? [john] or my vegan mac and cheese burrito? [john] and none of this tie bullcrap, “i can’t choose”
[lauren] yea, you have to pick someone. [lauren] “i can’t choose! meh meh meh!”
[john] ” i wanna eat both!” [john] yes, that’s fine you can want to eat both but you can want to eat [john] one a little bit more.
[lauren] that’s true. [john] it’s the mac and cheese burrito
[lauren] no, it’s definitely this vegan freak shake.
