Roasted plantain and black bean wrap


Plantains are my new favorite food! I love their flavor, texture, and their abundance of potassium. They make a great alternative to root veggies and squash. I had something similar to this years back at an authentic mexican restaurant in Seattle and have tried to make my own a few times. The original of course had ton of cheese and sour cream on it.

Roasted plantain and black bean wrap

1 cup cooked black beans

1 cup cooked black rice

2 cloves garlic

1/2 onion chopped

1 avocado

2 tablespoons salsa

2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vinegar

1 teaspoon honey

1/2 red bell pepper chopped

2 plantains peeled and sliced

smart balance or ghee for cooking the plantains

 4 gluten free wraps ( I used small corn tortillas) 

sea salt 

*Cook the rice and beans separately and as directed on package, then combine in an pan on low-medium heat.

* Add to the rice and beans the chopped garlic,salsa, sea salt to taste, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and simmer for about 30 minutes.(you may need to add a little water if it is dry).

*Roast the sliced plantains, chopped onions, red peppers, and honey in smart balance(or ghee) until plantains are slightly crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through and moist on the inside.

* Mash together the avocado with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, vinegar and salt to make an avocado sour cream.

* Place all ingredients inside a warmed up wrap/tortilla and you can add some cilantro or salsa and eat up!

* Makes 4 wraps

This is something that is light and healthy that I can throw together quick when there is starving kids to feed 🙂 The tortillas I use are sprouted and organic but I am not sure they are non GMO. I would like to find a non GMO corn tortilla so I am not feeding my kids frankenfoods.

Corn tortilla

1 Tbs. hummus ( I will post my easy hummus recipe soon)

1 Tbs shredded carrots

Handful of fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup chopped english or pickle cucumber

2 tsp. italian herbs

pinch of tumeric (optional)

Feta cheese (optional)

Warm the tortilla then spread on the hummus. Sprinkle the italian herbs on the hummus.  Put on the shredded carrots, cucumbers, and basil.
