White Bean & Avocado Spinach Spirals (Allergy-friendly, vegan)
Yields 4 Tortillas, cut into about 20 1-inch spirals.
- 1 can of Great Northern beans
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
- 3 avocados
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley*
- 2 tbsp canned green chiles (diced)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 4 large tortilla wraps**
- 3 fleshy tomatoes, thinly sliced***
- 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
1. Sauté the beans in a large frying pan over medium heat for a few minutes, then add the coconut aminos and the white balsamic vinegar. Cook while stirring until the liquid has cooked off. Remove from the heat and rough mash the bean mixture with the back of a fork.
2. Scoop the avocado flesh and mash it inside of a large bowl to break down any large chunks. Add the bean mixture, lime juice, parsley, green chiles, garlic powder, paprika, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix until combined.
3. Divid the the avocado mixture onto 4 equal parts and spread each portion onto each of the 4 tortillas.
4. Add a row of tomato slices across the shorter dimension of the first wrap, an inch or so from one edge, a row of spinach next to it, another row of tomatoes, and another row of spinach. Roll the wrap over the first row of tomatoes, and continue until it is completely rolled up. Chop this rollup into about 4 or 5 sections to make the spirals.
4. Repeat step 4 with the rest of the tortillas. You may serve right away or it keeps well overnight in the fridge. Enjoy!
*Parsley can be substituted for cilantro.
** Your tortilla or wrap can be made from anything you prefer. It can be flour, gluten free or brown rice, etc. just remember to warm it slightly so that you can roll it easily without it cracking or falling apart on you).
***Gently drain the slices of tomatoes of any juice to avoid soggy rollups. You can let them sit on a dish towel or paper towel while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
