Vegan veggie tortillas in 15 minutes

20160724_102058-01.jpeg

Last weekend was filled with yummy food and I’m not going to lie and say I held back. At all. I so did not. First I had a food review at LeTen, Dubai Mall then I had another at Fume, Pier7 Marina and the food was exceptional at both places and I ate like an absolute pig!

So now, I shall try to atone for my piggie sins and make amends with my Temple by nourishing it back to health.

For breakfast I made these wholewheat tacos that are filled with quite literally whatever I had in my fridge.

Ingredients:

  • Brown beans
  • Chickpeas
  • Kidney beans
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini
  • Olive oil
  • Lime
  • Zucchini ribbons
  • Grilled beef tomatoes
  • 2 wholewheat tortillas
  • Spinach
  • Avocado
  • Baby asparagus
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Sea salt and pepper

 

Here’s how to make them:

– Toast the tortillas
– Mix the brown beans, chickpeas, tahini and olive oil together and mash together
– Layer the bean mixture on the bottom of the tortillas so the rest of the ingredients stick
– Place the rest of the veggies whatever way you want
– Top with some sea salt and pepper and a squirt of lime
Crazy simple and very filling, these tortillas were just the thing I needed to help myself get back on track!

Making breakfast for the familia always makes me happy. Making a huge spread for them and patiently waiting for them to wake up.

This here is foul. A bean puree with lots of lemon, green chili, cilantro and tahini. Holy crabs, it’s good!

I’ll share more of the things being made as they finish.

Oh and Merry Christmas to those celebrating! ♡

They selflessy shared some fresh spinach they picked up from the farmer’s market and I just couldn’t resist cooking it right away!

This was an easy pasta recipe that was quick and healthy to make! It’s quinoa spaghetti with a healthy twist on pasta primavera!

Bulgar-stuffed red and yellow bell pepper, zucchini, and tomato with a thick tomato and mint sauce! Yum!

What are you having tonight?

For this recipe I grabbed whatever veggies I had on hand that could be hollowed and..well…did just that! I halved the zucchinis, grabbed a spoon and carefully made circles through the flesh and scooped out the seeds; also, I removed the seeds from the tomato and bell peppers after halving them.

I then put the bulgar wheat to boil in salted water and olive oil. Once the liquid evaporated, I spiced the bulgar by adding a pinch of cinnamon, cumin, pepper flakes, and black pepper.

After that, I drizzled a little bit of olive oil on an oven proof tray, placed the veggies and drizzled a bit more oil and lightly seasoned the veggies with salt and pepper. Then I stuffed the peppers with the bulgar wheat.

After feeling like there was something missing, I decided to make a quick tomato and mint sauce to go with it (I didn’t want it to be too dry). So I just basically fried off some garlic until golden brown and added a can of peeled and chopped tomatoes. A sprinkle of chopped mint and parsley, some salt&pepper and you’re good to go.

I baked the veggies on high heat for about 30 minutes until they were just blistering from the sides. Oh me, oh my!

You will love this recipe, it is delicious and filling. It was a win with my husband and my brother in law! Give it a go, and let me know how it goes! ❤
