“Eat well, Live well, Be well”
Vegan Mexican Plate
Serves one with some left over for lunch or dinner
Flat Bread (Toasted)
Salsa – 1 Fresh Tomato (chopped), 1 Red onion (chopped finely), Lime juice (Tablespoon) and some chopped fresh coriander (or any other herb you like) – mix together
1 Brown onion
Tin of Red Kidney Beans (or dry beans, soaked and then boiled)
Tin Tomatoes (organic preferably)
Green or Red Chilli chopped
What do I do now?
Chop the tomatoes and mix with the red onion, chilli, lime juice and coriander. Place to the side.
Crush some garlic, dice the brown onion.
Fry the onion and garlic in a hot pan with some olive oil for a minute or so and then add the red kidney beans (or black beans, white beans) and a tin of organic diced tomatoes. Simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.
Prepare your brown rice (1 cup) and chop your avocado.
Toast some flat bread or tortilla.
Assemble on a plate as per the suggested picture.
You can make your own hummus (it’s so much nicer) but there are lots of great tasty healthy options at the shops – if you are in a rush just use a store bought hummus.
Serve with a wedge of lime and sprinkle with some fresh coriander or parsley. Serve! Eat!
Anything else I should know?
You can add any type of bean mix to this dish – black beans fried in a little garlic is really good!
Lettuce and grated carrot and cucumber can be added if you want some extra freshness.
Of course you can add chicken or fish or beef to this for the non vegan option.
