I have made dozens of versions of this super easy “burrito” and in fact, it is a usual lunch food for me, after a green salad. It is tasty, and instead of using a refined white flour tortilla, you can prepare this using a nori wrapper, which has so many beautifying minerals OR a gluten free tortilla (brown rice, teff, organic corn even), if you want something that feels more substantial.
And just like the Raw Taco Salad Recipe, this recipe is super easy and really affordable; it breaks down to only $1.67 per burrito! And so fast to make- under 5 minutes for sure. How many meals can you say costs less than that?! Well ones that are made of whole, healthy foods- not fake junky foods to avoid while pregnant.
This is also a great recipe for those who like to pack their lunches. Simply pack up the filling and bring the nori wrappers or tortilla separate, and assemble there.
- 1 Tbs. organic Dijon mustard = $0.35
- 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice = $0.10
- ½ tsp. nutritional yeast = $0.31
- Black pepper to taste
- Celtic or Himalayan sea salt, to taste (optional)
- Base Mixture:
- 1 cup of diced celery (about 2 long stalks) = $0.75
- ⅓ cup diced white onion = $0.25
- ⅓ cup chopped parsley = $0.50
- 1 avocado = $2
- Untoasted nori wrappers (available at a health market or online) = $0.60 OR gluten-free brown rice or teff tortillas, or organic corn tortillas (often in the refrigerated section of health stores) ( 1 = $0.75 )
- Optional add-ons:
- Handful of baby spinach or a few kale leaves
- A few Tbs. of Probiotic & Enzyme Salad
- Mix the dressing of the mustard, lemon juice and nutritional yeast together in a medium bowl and sit to the side.
- Dice the onion, celery and parsley, and add to the dressing bowl. Mix everything together very well. Season with black pepper and a little bit of sea salt (optional) to suit your taste.
- Cut an avocado lengthwise and remove pit. Scoop out the flesh and cut in lengthwise strips.
- Lay a nori wrapper or the tortilla flat on a plate, and lay some avocado strips right down the center (the long way), avoiding a few inches from the top and bottom. Next spoon some of the mixture from the bowl on top of the avocado strips. Top with any add-ons you like. Wrap up as you would a burrito, by folding the bottom end up then wrapping the sides towards the middle. Hold in your hands so all the folds are held securely in place. Beginners- or anyone really!- should definitely eat over a plate! Enjoy and experiment to find your own favorite combinations. And share with us what you invented!
