This was my 2nd time making these, and Wow are they good! This time I took pictures as I went along so that I could share it with you :)
This recipe is adapted from the one in Isa Chandra’s book Appetite for Reduction. I highly recommend this (and all of her) book(s)!
Zucchini, Black Bean, and Black Olive Burritos
- Non-stick cooking spray
- 2 Tbsp vegetable broth (or water)
- 1 Tbsp Cilantro base
- 2 medium or 1 large zucchini, shredded (about 4 cups worth)
- 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
- 4 garlic cloves (or 2 Tbsp) minced
- 4 oz sliced black olives
- 1 Tbsp taco seasoning (or 1 tsp cumin + 1 tsp coriander + 1 tsp chili powder)
- 8 oz salsa verde (tomatillo salsa)
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans – drained, rinsed, and mashed
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions (scallions)
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 4 (whole wheat) burrito-sized tortillas
1. Saute the zucchini and jalapeno in a large skillet lined with non-stick cooking spray, and veg broth (or water) until it starts turning brown (about 10 minutes):
2. Add the garlic, olives, cilantro base and taco seasoning, and saute for about 2-3 minutes:
3. Add the salsa and black beans, give a good mix, and reduce heat to low, letting it simmer for about another 5-10 minutes:
4. Warm the tortillas then add the filling, and top with scallions and cilantro. Serve!
I added some of my fresh salsa and (of course) guacamole to mine, and for hubby I added some non-dairy sour cream. I also made some brown rice and added lime juice, cumin, and cilantro to serve on the side. Yummy!
