I have to admit. Around here I do most of the cooking - I enjoy it. I'm a control freak. The other day I handed over (most of) the job to Adam and this resulting burrito blew my mind. Considering the last item that was cooked for me by this man was pasta with frozen beans and carrots in it (sorry homie), I was really excited about this meal!
It took no time at all, was extremely high in fibre, protein, folate and lycopene. You also get benefits of healthy fats from the avocado, and a source of dairy in the yogurt if you choose to include it. This recipe makes 8 servings.
Ingredients: 2 Packages of Yves Ground Soy 1 can black beans Onion and garlic to taste Salsa Tomatoes (desired amount) Romaine Lettuce (desired amount) A small amount of grated cheddar cheese (optional) Chopped Avocado (optional) Plain, 1% yogurt (optional) 8 Whole Wheat Tortillas (large)
Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add desired amount of garlic. Once both are heated, add desired amount of onion. Then add the ground soy and the beans, and heat for about 5-10 minutes (soy product does not need to be fully cooked, just heated through). Chop up your tomatoes and lettuce. Grate the cheese and chop the avocado if you choose to use them.
Once the soy product and beans are heated, distribute them into the middle of the wrap. Fold the ends, then roll up the burrito. Adam put the burritos back into a hot pan to make them crispy, which made all the difference to me.
Serve them with a tbsp of yogurt instead of sour cream. SO DELICIOUS! They are satisfying, filling, and high in nutritional value. A great lunch or dinner indeed - and takes no time at all to whip up.
