July CHCH Healthy Recipe

Kale & Bean Burrito

 

It's 7:30 PM. After a long work day, the last thing you want to do is get up and cook. It's moments like these when you really wish you could snap your fingers and food fairies would appear, whipping up a healthy dinner in just a blink of an eye. 
From start to finish, this recipe takes about 10 minutes, no messy clean up, plenty of adaptations, and it's so simple!

(makes 1 burrito)

  • 1/2 cup kale, clean with stems removed and chopped
  • 1 tsp pepper jam
  • 1 spoonful of hummus
  • 2 spoonfuls of frozen corn 
  • 2 spoonfuls of canned kidney beans
  • 1/2 avocado chopped

Place beans and corn in a small bowl and set the tortilla on top. Place in the microwave for 40-50 seconds, stopping half way in between to flip the tortilla. Place the hummus and jam down to serve as the glue for toppings. Then add kale, corn, beans and avocado. 

You can even make extra and wrap and store them in a freezer. Simply reheat by removing plastic wrap and wrapping a damp paper towel around the burrito. Place in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or until thoroughly heated and top with fresh cilantro and a dollop of greek yogurt.
