About Black Beans – A High-Protein, High-Nutrition Pantry Staple!
Chances are, when you think of Black Beans you think of spicy South American or Mexican fare. But black beans deserve a place in your pantry year-round. They’re among the most versatile vegan/vegetarian “go to” ingredients in everything from hot dishes, chilis and soups to cold salads and wraps.
Black Beans, and all beans, are considered beneficial for colon/digestive health and bean intake is linked to lower rates of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Black Beans in particular are especially rich in healthy “micro-nutrients”. They get their shiny black colors from health-promoting anthocyanin flavonoids. A One-Cup serving of cooked black beans contains roughly: 15.2 grams of Protein, 15 grams of Fiber and just 227 Calories.
About our Tomato Chutney
New in 2022, our amazing Tomato Chutney takes “fusion cuisine” to new heights! Try it in this wrap as a substitute for traditional salsa. Our Tomato Chutney is prepared traditionally in small batches from fresh red-ripe tomatoes, onions, garlic, chilies, herbs and our Signature Spices. It’s as versatile as it is yummy — try it as a dip, add to any sandwich or use it as a Southeast Asian pizza sauce! In India Tomato Chutney is often enjoyed as an accompaniment to vegetable rice, rice pulao, biryani rice, idli, dosa, pakoras and parathas.
Black Bean and Jalapeño Wrap
1/2 cup sour cream (can be low fat or a vegan alternative)
1/2 teaspoon Indianlife Ground Cumin
1 (15 oz) can black bean, rinsed and drained
1 small avocado ripe, peeled and diced
1 small Jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or coriander leaves
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 (11″) Indianlife large wraps – your flavor choice!
Combine sour cream and cumin in small bowl; stir with whisk to combine.
Combine beans and next 5 ingredients in a bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons sour cream mixture down center of each wrapper. Spoon black bean mixture evenly over sour cream mixture. If using Tomato Chutney or Salsa, spread 2 tablespoons on top of the sour cream mixture, serve on the side as a condiment or spoon over the top of the finished wraps.
Roll wrap up and secure with wooden picks, if desired. Cutting Tip: Let the wrap sit for a moment after rolling it and if possible, turn the wrap seam-side down to cut. A clean cut all the way through with as few motions back and forth as possible helps ensure your fillings stay in place and enables you to cut smaller pieces if desired. Try using a sharp, non-serrated knife. Cut wrap in half or 3 pieces and enjoy.
Storing Prepared Wraps
Wraps can be stored in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. You can also make them, chill, slice and freeze in lunch-ready sections.
