Food for Real This Time!

Okay, now THIS was my burrito dinner.


And Greg's:


Smashed black beans with cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and garlic, potatoes, cabbage, spinach, mixed greens, guac, and salsa. They were pretty good for our first real time making them. I love the crunch of the cabbage. Do you guys have any favorite burrito toppings? Or recommend any wraps in particular? These were Whole Wheat wraps from TJ but G thinks we can do better. Next time, also, homemade salsa.

  1. Mmmm that burrito looks really good. I used to use those "flat out" wraps when I ate wheat and I really liked them AND they are rectangular...I think that holds fillings in much better. I'd probably put my fav rice and beans dish ingredients into a burrito which is rice and beans, wilted spinach, salsa, broccoli and avocado. I also used to make a yummy breakfast burrito with spicy refried beans, scrambled tofu, daiya cheese and some salsa and/or avocado. It was really good, I actually miss it right now lol.

  2. Those burritos sound good...cinnamon, yum! Cabbage is great on tacos and burritos...I like to slice it really thin and marinate it in vinegar so it becomes almost like a condiment. Jalapenos are a fav too. Have a great weekend!

  3. Gah! Don't listen to VaVa! Those Flat Outs are harrable! All chemicals. Hair too (L-Cycstein).

  4. VAVA, next time we will definitely include broccoli! I'm somehow not a huge fan of rice but that is a classic. Breakfast burrito sounds good too! I used the wrap this morning with some almond butter, apricot jam, and fresh blueberries and it was surprisingly good.

    Rose! Good to see you back. My sister taught me that you can put cinnamon in pretty much anything and it tastes really good. My faves to add it to are black beans and baba ganoush. Jalapenos would have been much welcome on the burrito!

    Shen, thanks for the warning. I hate eating hair.

  5. Ah I'm so sorry! I haven't eaten them in so long I didn't realize the yucky ingredients :( My bad! I stuck with Trader Joe's wraps in the more recent before gluten free history. :(

  6. VAVA, does yr Trader Joe's have the brown rice wraps? Can you eat those?

  7. I think I've seen them there. I will eventually try them, probably when the heat is unbearable for cooking so a yummy hummus wrap would be good!

  8. Joseph's are the only WW wraps I can stand. They're super soft (lots of ww wraps are too dry and fall apart.)
