Green Goddess Burritos (oil & gluten free)🌯💚🌯Do you notice anything different about my burritos?Yup, they’re green. I swapped my soft tortilla for a cabbage leaf.If you haven’t already heard cabbage is the new “IT” veggie for 2020. Whatever the case 😂I think all you really need to know is that these burritos taste delicious & crispy cabbage is a great way to get your green on.Enjoy!!! Recipe inspired by @forksoverknives magazine winter 2020 issue 💚
What you need: 8 Savoy cabbage leaves( the outer large leaves) , 1 small/med red onion finely chopped, 2 cups sweet potato finely chopped (about 1 large potato), 2 garlic cloves minced, 2tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1 cup frozen corn defrosted, 1 15 oz can of black beans rinsed/drained, 1/4 cup store bought salsa, 1 cup cooked quinoa, s/p to taste, juice of 1/2 lime
1️⃣ Prepare the cabbage leaves. Bring a pan of salted water to a rolling boil. Plunge the cabbage & cook for 2 minutes. Run under cold water. Pat the leaves dry with a kitchen towel, and trim hard stem at the base of the leaf which will make it easier to roll. Set aside
2️⃣For filling: heat a large skillet over medium, test heat with droplets of water until it sizzles Add a couple tbls water, potatoes, onion, garlic, & spices. Reduce heat to med/low adding 1 tbl of water at a time when needed to prevent sticking, scraping up brown bits in pan for more flavor. Cook and stir 20-25 min until potatoes are cooked through. Add corn, quinoa, black beans, salsa, heat through. Add salt/pepper to taste & lime juice. Adjust seasonings
3️⃣To assemble burritos: I used 2 leaves to form one burrito. First, lay one cabbage leaf down with bottom stem facing you. Next, lay another leaf down, overlapping 1/2 length of the first leaf. Spoon 3/4-1 cup of mixture in the center. Tuck left & right sides in then tightly roll from bottom to top into a tight cylinder. Place on wire rack seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet.Repeat. Makes about 4 large burritos. Or use one leaf with 1/4-1/2 cup filling to make smaller burritos.
5️⃣ Roast in the oven at 400 F till cabbage gets crispy 15-25 min. I served my cabbage burrito with homemade quac
