This is one of my top 5 easy recipes, a great go-to meal when I really don’t feel like cooking but still want to eat right. These rollups are super quick and easy to make, delicious, and loaded with healthy ingredients. We eat them almost once a week.
Beans provide low-fat protein, fiber, vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, folate, iron and phytonutrients. As I mentioned in my Carrot sauce recipe, we use canned beans from Eden Organics, because they claim that their cans do not contain BPA. It would probably be even healthier to cook dried beans, but we don’t.
The tomato (and salsa) bring lycopene (a powerful antioxidant), fiber, potassium, vitamin B and C, lutein, and other good stuff.
Avocados contain cholesterol-lowering oleic acid, vitamin B6, C and K, potassium, folate, and fiber.
As for the Tortillas, we love the Ezekiel 4:9 by Food for Life (we get ours at Whole Foods). They are flour-less,organic, and contain only sprouted whole grains (and some water and sea salt) which create a complete protein (they also contain 18 amino acids). They are super delicious with a nutty flavor and when they crisp up, they’re even yummier. In the images here we are using flour tortillas which also works great, it just makes for a less filling dish (I made these particular ones in Sweden and couldn’t find sprouted tortillas).
I started adding the avocado spread when I stopped eating dairy (we used to put cheese on the tortillas while they were heating up in the frying pan, which was delicious, so if you eat cheese, definitely try that!) and it has become a favorite for so many dishes. It is super versatile and you can change up the ingredients to fit the dish you are making.
This is such a quick recipe, perfect for busy weeknights. We prep everything and line it up for fast assembly, then heat the tortillas, fill them with our choice of ingredients, roll them up and enjoy.
