…made with ingredients you’ll want to keep on hand in order to stay happily vegan. Or, make it RAW! by checking out my recipe for tortillas, which I’ll be posting tomorrow 🙂
1 Spelt Flour Tortilla: these are filling! Plenty of nutrition for a meal, especially when you serve with a side of Cacao Beans, which I think of as “fries” when I eat this comforting meal.
1 – 2 Tbsp of Coconut Butter, warmed just enough to be spreadable
1 Tsp of Apple Cidar Vinegar
1 Tsp of Bragg’s Seasoning
Light Sprinkling of Cayenne Pepper
1 Large Handful of Greens like Arugula or Mixed Salad Greens
Other delicious additions (any or all):
Red Bell Pepper
Olives or Olive Tapenade
Broccoli marinated in Apple Cidar Vinegar, Olive Oil, and Bragg’s Seasoning or Unpasteurized Miso
Soaked seaweed like Arame, Wakame, Nori, Dulse or any others you like! Try a new one like Laver or Sea Lettuce.
1 Tsp of Avocado Oil to Dress the Greens (this delicious oil makes “staying healthy” so easy!)
**Try and stay away from Meat and/or Dairy for this sammie. The tortilla is most digestible with a vegan fat source like Coconut Oil. If you must have dairy, try a sprinkling of organic goat cheese or feta. For meat, try a little steamed or smoked fish with a Raw Vegan Tortilla. Do not eat meat and dairy together – this Kosher rule is on the money.
How to Assemble:
Warm the tortilla in a dehydrator or oven until soft and fragrant. Lay flat on a plate and use a spoon to schmear the coconut butter onto the tortilla, starting at the center and staying within 3/4 of an inch from the edges. Use a circular pattern until smooth and spread evenly.
Add the teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and Spread over the Coconut Butter – the two will combine into a sauce and will spread evenly over the tortilla.
Sprinkle with the Braggs Seasoning, Dash of Cayenne Pepper. Then cover one half of the tortilla with your greens and veggies of choice, fold the other half over, say Grace, and ENJOY!
And for the “fries”: a little handful of Raw Cacao Nuts/Seeds, skins on. You’ll love the hearty flavor and texture of this amazingly nutritious food. Cacao = Real Chocolate; one of the most satisfying foods you can eat. I’m a nut for side dishes and even though the sandwich is delicious on it’s own, a little variation on the side gives me the satisfaction I need to tell me I’m done eating.
Chocolate is not just for sweets! I love to add a few tablespoons of Cacao nibs to my raw chopped salads or nut pates (if you let them soak in water for about 10 minutes they become chewy, and they’re savory like any other nut).
