Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Burritos



Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Burritos 





So, I was searching the world wide web when I noticed that a lot of people were putting cauliflower and chickpeas together. What a brilliant combination! I decided to give it a go with my own version of roasted cauliflower and chickpea burritos. I made my own guac and homemade tortillas too. Made it even better if you ask me. I can't see myself ever buying tortillas from the store again! 


Roasted Veggies

1 head of cauliflower
1 can garbanzo beans
half a bag of frozen corn
Turmeric, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
salt and pepper 

Heat oven to 400'. On a piece of parchment, spread the cauliflower pieces, corn and beans. Sprinkle a generous amount of turmeric, garlic powder and pepper. I only added a little salt. Bake for 15 min, give or take, or until golden brown. I like my veggies a little al dente so I normally stop baking and turn the broiler on high for the last few minutes.

Guacamole 

2 ripe avocados 
half red onion, chopped
cherry tomatoes, cut in 4's 
half a lime
salt, to taste

Nothing to this one. Throw it all in a bowl and mash with a fork until you get desired texture. I like it more on the chunky side.

Tortillas 

2 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 T baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 cup veggie oil 
Water, add in small increments until dough consistency 

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix. I use a fork to separate all the clumps of flour. Then add the veggie oil. At this point I still use a spoon to make sure I get all the flour off the sides of the bowl. Start adding water until clumps form. Now start mixing with your hand. Add water slowly as needed but you want to make sure you don't make a watery dough mix. When you have a nice consistency, take a small palm size piece and place it on a flat, lightly floured surface. Start rolling out the dough until you have a flat oval piece. Take off the roller and place it horizontally on your flat surface and roll once more until you have a circle. Or something that at least resembles a circle. You can make them as large or as small as you'd like. 

Place your rolled out dough on a hot flat cook surface like a pancake griddle, which is what I use. When you notice little bubbles forming it's time to flip. Keep an eye on the other side making sure not to burn it. Maybe 30 seconds.


And there you have it! I add some hot sauce too. No too bad, huh? Tell me what you think! Try it out and I'm always open for suggestions :)
