Could this get any easier?
I’ve known I like black beans but cannot seem to find them in any supermarkets around here. I know there are dried ones in the Central Markets but to be honest, I don’t think that far ahead to soak them the night before…that, and I haven’t been to the Central Markets in almost a year!
Anyhoww…. I struck gold recently with a little health food/lolly shop of sorts (don’t ask me how those two things go together?) in Brighton which sells tinned black beans. Yay!
Basically, make the Frijole Refritos recipe but do it with black beans. And chilli! AWESOME. LOVE black beans.
Now, onto the wrap. We have dug ourselves in a kind of hole lately. Gluten free is one thing. I really dislike gluten free wraps. They are made from useless things and they taste horrible. So we’ve been erring on the corn side of life. The trouble with corn is that unless it’s organic, it’s going to likely give us cancer or as the rats discovered, they were made infertile within two generations :(. I don’t want to leave that legacy with my kids so we eat organic where possible and where can you find corn tortillas that are organic and not filled with the likes of maize and fillers?
So I’m pretty excited to say the least that this TWO MINUTE recipe for chick pea based wraps actually works. And it actually wraps. Unfortunately I filled mine so full that I couldn’t wrap it all the way around but hey, it still held it all together and didn’t fall to pieces! That’s a serious win!
Recipe you ask?
1 cup besan flour (that’s chick pea flour)
1 cup water
And that’s it. Now. I added 1 tsp onion powder, 1 T nutritional yeast, 1/2 tsp garam masala and a shake of salt. But that’s up to you. It’s SO EASY.
Whisk the batter and then spray a hot pan and drop 1/2 cup full and spread it around into a thin layer. Leave it for 30 seconds, then flip over and let it brown on the other side.
So insanely easy.
I topped the wrap with black beans in a Frijoles Refritos style, added guacamole, yellow capsicum, lettuce, spanish onion, tomato, grated carrot and fresh coriander.
Life is good!
