Preparation time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

2 burrito-size whole-wheat tortillas

1/2 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and drained if using canned

1/2 cup cooked brown rice or other whole grain

1/4 cup shredded vegan cheese (Daiya or Follow Your Heart cheddar are best)

2 tablespoons minced red onion

1/2 cup salsa

1 cup fresh spinach leaves

  1. Warm the tortillas by laying each one directly on a stove burner with a low flame. Flip over after 10 seconds and warm for another 10 seconds to make the tortilla flexible and delicious.

  2. Warm the beans and rice over medium heat in a small saucepan with a small amount of water. Stir a few times and remove from heat once warmed through, about 3 minutes.

  3. Fill the middle of each tortilla with 1/2 cup spinach leaves and 1/2 of the black beans and brown rice. Top with 2 tablespoons vegan cheese, 1 tablespoon red onion, and 1/4 cup salsa.

  4. Roll the tortilla from the bottom, folding in the sides.

You can easily make this recipe gluten-free by using corn tortillas rather than whole-wheat. If you don’t have a gas stovetop, wrap the tortillas in a dampened paper towel and wrap again in foil. Warm in an oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
