Avocado-Beet Wraps with Succotash
Per 1 filled wrap
4 flour tortillas (10-inch diameter)
2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
2 cups Succotash Salad (see Chapter 4)
1 large or 2 small beets (about 8 ounces), boiled until tender, peeled
1 ripe Florida avocado, peeled and cut into 1-inch wedges
Soften the tortillas by placing them directly into the microwave on a plate for 10–20 seconds.
Spread 1⁄2 tablespoon mayonnaise into a line across the center of each tortilla. Spoon 1⁄2 cup succotash onto each tortilla. Halve the beets, and cut the halves into 1⁄2-inch slices. Divide the beets and avocado slices evenly onto the tortillas, placing them on the side of the succotash line closest to you. Sprinkle with salt.
Place 1 of the tortillas on a work surface directly in front of yourself. Fold the near edge of the tortilla over the fillings, and roll it, jellyroll fashion, away from yourself, keeping even pressure to ensure a tight roll. Place seam-side down on a plate; repeat with remaining tortillas.
Fiber is the most important part of each meal because it helps regulate blood sugars, energy levels, fullness, weight, and heart health, and it promotes a healthy digestive system. It is recommended to consume 25–38 grams of fiber per day. Sources should stem from vegetables, fruit, and whole grains.
