What’s In My Tortilla Today? Last Night’s Leftovers, Yes!

As a child my siblings and I were not big fans of leftovers.  I’m not sure what that was all about (no bad on my mom as she is a very good cook).  I have amazing leftovers now and I’d like to think the vegan fare is the reason.  I made the best roasted sweet potato cubes last night and served with black wild rice and avocado.  So today’s tortilla is mostly that plus a few more add-ins.

Trader Joe’s Chia Seed Tortilla, black wild rice, roasted sweet potato cubes, red onion, fresh parsley, tomato, avocado, Bragg’s Vinaigrette and Trader Joe’s Jalapeño Hot Sauce.  Easier than pie and way more nutritious, not to mention very tasty.

 

Healthy Hypocrite Tip:  Are your “yams” really sweet potatoes?  You betcha they probably are.  What they (your market) have been labeling as yams are really red-skinned, orange-fleshed sweet potatoes.  For your information, sweet potatoes’ skin and flesh range in colors, and they come in both “hard” and “soft” varieties. It is the soft varieties, which become moist when cooked, that are most typically labeled “yams” here in the U.S.
