Young people on the go love 'fast food.' Not a Big Mac or a taco made out of doritos, but meals that are quick to create and delicious and full of energy. A swift google search for 'easy meals' yields over 100 million results. Imagine a vibrant, fresh bowl of protein, fiber, 'good' fats, and vitamins. It's a take on a classic.
This makes enough for one person, and maybe a friend. Easy to eat or pack and take on the go.
You will need:
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 a zucchini, peeled and chopped
- 4 leaves curly red kale, washed
- 2 cups of soaked and cooked black beans, or 1 can
- 1 tbsp cilantro (if not allergic)
- 1 tomato, diced
- Shredded Daiya, however much is wanted
- 1 cup alfalfa sprouts
- An avocado
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 half a lime, to squeeze over
- Tortilla chips
Throw the garlic and onions into a wok or similar pan with a little bit of oil (grapeseed maybe?) on medium heat. Once the aroma is in the air, throw in the zucchini and kale. Wait for everything to soften and for the kale to look cooked. Start mixing in a little bit of the seasoning. Add the beans. Taste and add more seasoning if desired. Squeeze in some lime juice.
In a separate bowl, mix the tomatos with some cilantro and salt and pepper and a little oil, taste this too. Cut up the avocado and squeeze the lime over it as well. Mix the avocado with the diced tomato.
Taste whats in the wok. If it tastes done, and delicious on a chip, then turn down the heat and scoop some in a bowl. Top with the Daiya FIRST so that it melts, then the avocado and tomato, then the alfalfa sprouts. It looks pretty, and then once everything is mixed together it is easily scooped on a chip or eaten with a spoon, or in a tortilla.
