1. Beet & Cuke Rounds with Beans, Veggies and Cheese
2. Lettuce Wrap with beets, beans and cukes
4 large lettuce leaves washed
2 veggies of choice. I used cucumbers, beets, and pepper! You can use zucchini, squashes etc. Sliced into rounds or chopped.
2-3 additional veggies for garnishing (Onion, cucumber, beets, peppers, herbs) Chopped to desired size.
2 cups beans (I used pinto. You can use black, garbanzo, kidney, or any other!) Rinsed and drained.
1⁄4 cup sour cream (cream cheese or tahini, if making a greek version)
2 Tbsp spice (I used chili powder)
1 Tsp salt
Juice of 1⁄2 lemon or lime
1⁄2 cup grated cheese to garnish
In a food processor, blend the beans, spice and sour cream (cream cheese or tahini) and citrus of choice. Once this has reached desired texture, set aside. Now layer a small spoonful of the beans into the lettuce or onto the veggie rounds. Next garnish with the veggies of choice, cheese and any sauces or herbs you like! Super simple, fun and refreshing! Try playing around with what's in your share and using what's in season to guide you. I used the peppers, beets, cukes, lettuce and green onions for the creations featured here.
