Mexican Veggie Wrap

I love Mexican food and especially easy mexican recipes!ย  I made this really quick meal tonight for myself.ย  You could mix the veggies up a bit and use your own favourite vegetables.ย  It’s basically some garlic curly kale with mexican flavoured peppers and mushrooms with refried beans, homemade guacamole and homemade salsa.ย  I love using shiitake mushrooms, not only are they super nutritious but they are really meaty and a good replacement for the meaty meals! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’ve broken the recipe up as follows:

Salsa

Cherry tomatoes

Lime

Red onion finely chopped

Chilies (optional, I left out as the kids were eating it)

Coriander chopped

Salt & pepper

Chop up all of the cherry tomatoes, blend very lightly if you wish, add in a squeeze of lime, finely chopped red onion, sliced chilies, and chopped coriander and season to serve.

Guacamole

Avocado

Lime

A spoon of salsa

Coriander

Salt and Pepper

Mash up a whole avocado or more if your making a bigger quantity.ย  Add in a squeeze of lime to your tastes, a spoon of the salsa, chopped coriander and season to serve.

Refried Beans

I used tinned mexican beans…mmm…you can make your own by mashing up pinto beans with stock garlic, water and seasonings.

Garlic Kale

Kale chopped

3 Garlic Cloves Chopped

Onion Chopped

Seasonings

Cook the kale up in a little water with the chopped garlic and onions and simmer until tender.ย  Season to serve.

Mexican Spiced Peppers & Meaty Mushrooms

Red Peppers Sliced

Onions Sliced

Shiitake or other meaty mushrooms sliced

Mexican Spice Mix

Fry up the peppers, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil or water and add the spice mix to your tastes.ย  Season and serve.

Serve everything up in a warm wholemeal wrap and enjoy!ย  If you enjoyed this recipe please subscribe to this website for future recipes and my youtube channel for further recipes, holistic health and wellbeing ideas!

Cacao Powder

Cacao powder is chocolate in its raw and natural state, its super nutritious.ย  Click below for access to a really interesting article on the benefits of Cacao Powder.ย  There is loads of information online regarding the health benefits of Cacao, I would recommend doing further research in this area.ย  You can also make your own Raw healthy Chocolate with cacao powder…yes chocolate can be healthy.ย  You can buy Cacao Powder in the supermarket but I find its better value to buy it in bulk.ย  Check out the brand below for a high quality raw product.
