"NOT Your Average Chopped Taco Salad"
Aptly named by my better-half
Sometimes I try and challenge myself to make a meal from only the things I have on hand, or leftovers in the fridge or pantry.
Here we have:
- Shredded Romaine lettuce (from the Farmer's Market at work)
- 1 can of black beans, seasoned with garlic, chili powder, and a wee bit of chipotle powder,
- 1/2 cup of quinoa, cooked in 1 cup of vegetable broth, with 2 tsp of taco spice and some seasoned salt
- chopped tomato and red onion, salt and pepper
1 avocado cubed with 3/4 cup of shelled edamame (leftovers) tossed with salt, pepper and lime juice*I had steamed up some edamame, which I would take to work as a snack. These last few pods were the leftovers so I thought I'd toss them in with the avocado cubes, in the style of "Guacamame" from Appetite for Reduction.
Dressing was the juice of 1/2 a lime, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil and agave to taste!
