|As a child I loved being out in the rain; as a senior citizen,|
not so much. Rather watch from my big window.
|These wraps would be good hot or cold,|
a perfect all season recipe.
|My favorite canned black beans|
|Lettuce and tomatoes are the basics for|
any good wrap.
SMOKE AND SPICE BLACK BEAN WRAP
2 large flour tortilla wraps
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups of chopped lettuce
1 large tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 cup thawed frozen corn
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup sweet onion, small dice
Put the black beans into a microwave safe bowl and warm them for about two minutes. Add the beans to the rest of the above ingredients and mix until everything is well distributed.
Warm the tortillas in the oven or wrapped in a paper towel and placed in the microwave for about 10 seconds.
Spread each wrap liberally with the smoky sauce, fill the wrap with the above ingredients and try not to moan while you eat.
Makes 2 wraps.
SMOKE AND SPICE SAUCE
3-4 Tbs. vegan mayonnaise
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. chipotle powder (use chili powder for a substitute, but it won't be near as good)
1/8 tsp. paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1 dash of Tapitio hot sauce
1/4 tsp. finely chopped garlic
This recipe can be made ahead. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
|Some vegans are not fond of being in the kitchen.|
That's when fast and easy recipes come in handy.
This recipe is my interpretation of one I discovered in The Happy Herbivore cookbook.
