Filling and delicious. Filling and delicious.
Number of Servings: 1


    1 sprouted tortilla (I use French Meadow, 8˝)
    .5 c. fat free refried black beans
    (seasoned with cumin, ancho or cayenne chili powder, garlic, and oregano to taste)
    70 grams cooked garnet yam, mashed smooth.
    1 ounce raw baby spinach
    .5 ounce Daiya vegan mozzarella

    Salsa (optional) for when serving.


Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and place tortilla on it.

Spread your half cup of seasoned beans onto one half of the tortilla. Smear the smashed sweet potatoes on the other half. Top the beans with the spinach. Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with the Daiya. Fold in half and press together. Flip tortilla.

Bake in a 350-400 degree oven, turning once during baking time. Bake until tortillas is lightly browned and crisped.

Remove from oven and allow to sit and cool for a few minutes. Snip into four pieces with kitchen shears. Top with your favorite salsa and enjoy!

    This was a pleasant surprise! I'm not vegan, so I used a half ounce of colby jack cheese and served it with salsa and fat free sour cream. I baked it at 375 for 15 minutes and flipped halfway through. It was a little crispy on the edges, so I might try it at 350 next time I make it. Thanks! - 1/17/12

    :D Nice to see an omni digging it, too. I like mine a little crispy and tend to overbake a bit, honestly. Glad you liked it!
