Cauliflower Garbanzo Bean Tortillas

Tortillas make for a healthy, simple meal you will look forward to after a long workout. Roasted cauliflower and garbanzo beans create a rich depth of flavor. Adding to cauliflower's appeal is its extreme versatility. You can eat it raw, add it to salads, or use it in your cooking. (Side note: Due to beans and onions included in the reipe we recommend not to have the meal the night prior to a long run if you have a sensitive stomach).

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 small whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 cups purple cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 large avocados, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Cauliflower and garbanzo beans:

  • 1 small head cauliflower florets, finely chopped
  • 1/2 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp chipotle seasoning
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp fresh cracked pepper

Onions:

  • 1/2 large yellow onions, finely sliced
  • 1 T Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp fresh cracked pepper

Preparation:

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil and non-stick cooking spray. Divide the cauliflower and garbanzo beans between the two sheets, and toss with the oil, seasoning and salt and pepper. Bake for 30–40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes, until the cauliflower and beans are golden.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil for the onions over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add the onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the seasonings, stir to coat the onions and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the water and balsamic vinegar and reduce for 10–15 minutes, until the liquid is gone and the onions are caramelized.
  3. To assemble,  heat the tortillas in the oven, according to package instructions. Divide the cauliflower and garbanzo mixture among the tortillas. Top with the onions. Scatter cabbage and avocado over the top and sprinkle with cilantro. (Note: Serves 2).
