Tortillas and wraps are such a great way to get your kids hands-on in the kitchen. When I make these, I separate the ingredients and let my children make up their own tortillas. They shove as much as they can into their wraps!


This black bean mix is suitable for vegetarians but has a tasty and unique combination of ingredients that even meat eaters will love. Why not make your own Arrowroot Tortillas too? Arrowroot is full of protein, calcium and magnesium to help build strong bones and high in fiber to aid in digestion. Dig in!

Ingredients

Method


Arrowroot Tortillas
4 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp coconut cream
1/2 cup (2 1/6 oz) arrowroot
2 tsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
Coconut oil, melted (for frying)

Black Bean Mixture
1 medium-sized sweet potato, peeled, finely cubed
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely diced
2 medium-sized carrots, peeled and grated
1 ½ cups (9 ½ oz) cooked black beans or 1 (14 oz) canned beans, rinsed and drained
1 2/3 cups (14 ¾ oz) tomatoes, diced
1 medium-sized red apple, peeled and finely grated
1 cup (6 oz) corn kernels
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp dried oregano
sea salt and pepper, to taste
1 large avocado, peeled, finely chopped
1 cup (2 ¾ oz) shredded lettuce
1/2 cup (4 ¼ oz) sour cream or natural yogurt
1/4 cup (1/6 oz) fresh cilantro
1. For the Arrowroot Tortillas: In a bowl, combine all ingredients (aside from the oil) until a smooth batter forms.
2. Heat a small frying pan over medium heat and brush with some coconut oil.
3. Pour 1/8 of the batter into the pan, swirling it to coat the base.
4. Cook for approximately 1 or 2 mins on each side. Continue with rest of batter.
5. Keep tortillas warm until ready to serve.
6. Preheat oven to 390°F and line a baking tray with baking paper. Toss the sweet potato cubes with 1/2 tbsp olive oil and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins or until cooked through and browned on the outside.
7. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan on medium heat and fry onions and garlic for 3 mins or until soft. Add carrots and fry for another 3 mins. Add beans, tomato, apple, corn, lime juice and spices and simmer for 10 mins. Season to taste.
8. Serve black bean mix in Arrowroot Tortillas topped with avocado, lettuce, sour cream and cilantro leaves (optional).

Tip:
Replace sweet potato with fried chicken strips for a meaty version. Replace the Arrowroot Tortillas with Wholesome Kamut Wraps (see page 63). Replace the coconut cream with milk of choice. Serve immediately, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
