the musical fruit

7 Apr

A don’t have a name for this recipe other than “bean wraps” or “bean bowl” but that sounds quite bland and unappetizing for a dish as fresh and delicious as this one. Just some simple ingredients but such wonderful flavor.

What’s great is no stove or oven is required and it’s gluten-free too…so that means Hannah you have to try it!

Such a simple recipe it seems silly to post it, but look at those colors…can’t you just taste them?!

Ingredients:

  1. Can of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  2. Avocado
  3. Salsa
  4. Cheese
  5. Tomatoes
  6. Cilantro
  7. anything else that looks good in the fridge…spinach, peppers

I just love how fresh the cilantro and avocado taste together…hard to believe I never ate avocado before moving to California.  Now I can’t imagine the fruit bowl on the counter without it.

  • Once beans are rinsed and drained, microwave so they heat right through
  • Mash them ’til smooth

  • Chop up all ingredients and put in tortilla wrap and pop the wrap in microwave until warm.

Now that I’m Ms.Celiac I can’t have flour tortilla wraps so I just throw it all in a bowl and warm it up.  I actually prefer it this way. No bland tortilla getting in the way of the robust flavors popping in my mouth. So take that gluten! I’m not crying over you now!
