OK, so I know how hard and sometimes annoying it can be to pack our lunches for work or school. I have no problem packing my husband’s lunch but for some reason I can’t make up my mind as to what I want. And being in love with food the way that I am, a plain ol’ sandwich won’t do! This past week I whipped something up before heading out the door and to my surprise.. it was awesome! I didn’t really measure anything and I thought it would be pretty good, but it was so good that I had it twice in one week! It’s super easy and it fit in my little lunch box so it’s easy to transport.
Black Bean Wraps, makes 2 large wraps
1/3 cup canned black beans
1 Roma tomato
1 teaspoon of finely chopped onion (whatever you have in the pantry will work!)
Juice of 1 lime
Chili powder, 3 dashes
Cumin, 2 dashes
Salt & pepper, to taste
Put all the ingredients into a Tupperware container with a good lid so no yummy juices drip out.
If you want, you can stop right there, put a couple of fat-free wraps and lettuce in foil and call it a vegan day OR you can put a little bit of cheese in a zip lock bag along with some sour cream in a small container. Either way, it’s vegetarian and delicious!
I also had some of the black bean mixture left over so I use it as a salsa with tortilla chips. SO GOOD!
