An easy, healthy, tasty recipe. This would be handy to bring to work for lunch.
2 tortilla wraps
1 tin black beans
half a teaspoon ground cumin
half a teaspoon ground coriander
a pinch of ground chili
about a handful of baby spinach
about a handful of grated cheese (I used goats cheese. You could also use other types of cheese such as cheddar)
Step 1: Put 1 tortilla wrap on baking tray lined with parchment paper. (Unfortunately part of my wraps broke off so they are not perfectly round. 😛 )
Step 2: Rinse and drain black beans. Put in a bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork.
Step 3: Add ground cumin, coriander and chili to beans and mix well.
Step 4: Spread black beans on top of tortilla wrap.
Step 5: Put spinach on top of black beans, then put grated cheese on top of spinach.
Step 6: Put the 2nd tortilla wrap on top of everything and press everything together. Bake in oven preheated to 180 c for 10-15 minutes.
Step 7: Cut into quarters. Enjoy for lunch or dinner. If you have some leftover you can put it in the fridge and reheat it the next day.
A tasty veggie burger recipe
half a cup brown rice
1 cup water
2 sweet potatoes
1 tin black beans
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
Step 1: To cook rice put rice and water in a saucepan. Bring to boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes. (You could also use a rice cooker if you have one)
Step 2: Peel and chop sweet potatoes. Steam or boil until soft (about 10 minutes).
Step 3: Rinse and drain black beans. Put in mixing bowl along with cooked sweet potato. Mash with potato masher or fork.
Step 4: Add cooked brown rice, ground cumin and coriander to mixing bowl. Mix everything together well.
Step 5: Form mixture into burgers and place on baking tray lined with parchment paper. (I made 6 burgers from this mixture) Bake in oven preheated to 200 c for 25-30 minutes. Flip burgers halfway through to ensure that they are cooked evenly on both sides.
Step 6: Burgers should look like this when they are done.
Step 7: Enjoy these burgers for lunch or dinner. I had them for lunch with some steamed broccoli. If you have some leftover you can put them in the fridge and reheat them the next day.
