Lunch + Dinner Recipes

Black Bean Tortillas super quick black bean tortillas

2nd February 2016

This is fast food but not of the unhealthy variety. Black bean tortillas are very quick to make…which makes them perfect for lunch.

Serves 4

  • 4 tortillas
  • 1 tin of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup of basil
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pink salt
  • 1/4 cup of raw cashews
  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped into cubes

Start by making the pesto by adding the basil, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cashews to a food processor and whizz until you have a course pesto consistency.

Next toss the drained and rinsed beans, avocado and pesto together in a mixing bowl and then set this ‘filling’ aside for the flavours to infuse.

Lastly heat and ‘toast’ the tortillas in a dry pan on both sides until they start swelling/ forming air bubbles in the middle.

Serve the tortillas flat on a plate with a generous serving of the black bean filling, these are to be eaten rolled or folded, with your hands.

Happy eating, with love, from the Yoga Kitchen
