Sometimes we get into a bit of a dinner rut during the week. Our days are so busy, and I'm not great at meal planning. I end up falling back on simple tried and tested recipes.
I'm mostly happy with very simple meals such as salads, but I like to experiment with different recipes for fun - and for the sake of the other people in this household!
Funnily enough, I always seem to find the time to line up a list of new desserts to try out, hmmmm...
Anyway, this meal was a nice change from the usual. I love black beans! And the cashew-tofu mayonnaise was a perfect light accompaniment.
These reminded me of our old but recently neglected favourite, tangy bean wraps, although the flavour of the filling is entirely different.
Now, with my leftover black beans I plan to try making black bean brownies. See? It's so easy to think of new desserts to try!
Simple Black Bean Wraps with Cashew-Tofu Mayo
1 tbsp oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Half a red capsicum, chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1.5 cups corn kernels (I used frozen)
3 cups cooked black beans
1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste
6 homemade white flour wraps (you can actually use white flour or a combination of flours in these wraps) or bought wraps
Batch of Cashew-Tofu Mayo
Fry the onion in oil for a few minutes. Add the garlic and capsicum and cook a few more minutes. Add the tomato paste, sugar, salt, corn and black beans and cook for a bit more.
In the meantime make the mayo, and the wraps if making them yourself.
Add the bean filling and mayo to the wraps, roll them up and eat!
