Your ‘Go To’ non-stick pan.
.... something to chop, grate and mash.
We've chosen the On&Off Non-stick detachable handle sauté pan for its high-performance non-stick, perfect for keeping the wrap and bean mix loose on the cooking surface.
The toolbar mixing bowl and colander set is a convenient kitchen tool for straining canned black beans, kidney beans and chickpeas etc from their excess liquid. After which we like to give them a good rinse to remove the aquafaba.
Once drip-dried, the stainless steel bowl provides the perfect container for mashing up the rest of the ingredients with the beans ready to fry.
- 3-4 Tortilla wraps
- 1 Tin of black beans (drained and washed)
- 1 Preferably red onion (grated)
- 2 Cloves of garlic (finely grated or use pasté)
- 2 Glugs of Reggae Reggae Jerk sauce (75ml)
- Seasoning (Salt & Pepper)
- 3 spring onions or a small bunch of chives
- Cherry tomatoes (Sliced)
- (Optional) Hand full of cheese or vegan alternative
1) Into the toolbar set goes a whole tin of black beans to be drained and rinsed in the colander. After this, 2 generous glugs of reggae sauce. Mmmmm....
Grate the onion into the mixing bowl, add your finely grated garlic or substitute for any paste/puree you have in the cupboards, these also work well too.
Mash it all up until the mix is starting to stick to itself.
Warm up your pan with a little oil; just a small amount of rapeseed or light olive oil is perfect to stop the bean mix from sticking. Once the pan’s hot, blob into the middle a ladle-sized portion of bean mix.
Flatten the bean mix pile with the back of a spoon or spatula, still keeping it all intact. Doing this should spread the portion into what looks a bit like a flattened burger pattie.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes then add your tortilla over the top. If adding cheese sprinkle over the top of the beans. Cheddar or any melty vegan alternative works well.
With the ladle, or very carefully with your hand… press down on top of the wrap to squash the bean mix outwards under the tortilla.
Allow another 2-3 minutes. Then flip it onto a plate.
Garnish with chopped cherry tomatoes and top with spring onions or chives.
Enjoy with a drizzle more Reggae, sour cream or dairy-free alternatives make nice additions.
We recommend exploring with guacamole, lettuce leaves and some homemade salsa to create your perfect alternative to a weekday sandwich.
It's up to you whether you leave it open like a taco, wrap it up like a burrito, or fold it in half like a quesadilla. Enjoy it how you want!
You'll find this recipe also works with mini tortilla tacos too.
