Vegan Tostadas & Burritos

Music: Amelie soundtrack

I bought some corn tortillas last week for some variety and it has been fun to experiment with different grains, soy, & beans to make quick meals!

The ones on the left were made with a recipe from Sarah Kramer's books. Sauteed onions, green pepper, jalapeno, celery, garlic & chili powder, cumin, sea salt, ground pepper to taste, & 1/4 C vegetable broth with homemade black beans. Topped with fresh avocado, black olive slices, chopped tomato & lettuc, & my homemade salsa. Served with brown rice & roasted beets=yum! I just warmed the corn tortillas a bit in the toaster oven at 300 degrees.

The next ones were made with browned Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo, chopped lettuce, tomato, onions, broken corn chips, & homemade salsa.

These burritos that Jim made for lunch were made with Trader Joe's whole wheat flour tortillas (they have flaxseed in them!), brown rice, chopped lettuce, & tomato, homemade salsa, & the last of the original bean mixture from the first recipe. Jim found that it's the enriched white flour tortillas that affect his digestion; the whole wheat do not. So that's all we buy now.

Great vegan variety using fresh produce from the garden. Especially those awesome Michigan tomatoes! Can't get enough!
