belly full of burrito!!

Who says a burrito has to involve a flour based tortilla?  Choc full of fresh veg and flavour, a burrito can be a very healthy dinner time choice!
Raw Food Burrito's
* 1 Avocado, mashed  * 3 Radishes  * 1/2 Capsicum  *1 Tomato  * 2 Sundried Tomatoes  * 1 inch Leek * Sprig of Parsley  *1 tsp Tamari or Soy Sauce  *pinch Dried Chilli Flakes  *juice from 1 Lime  *2 tbslp Sunflower Seeds  * 1/2 cup Alfalfa Sprouts  *Baby Cos Lettuce Leaves

Finely chop all vegetgables and herbs
Add radishes, capsicum, tomatoes, leek and parsely to the mashed avocado
Season with tamari/soy sauce, lime juice and chilli flakes
Rinse cos lettuce and place large spoonful of mixture onto each leaf
Top with alfalfa sprouts and seeds and roll into burrito

What we loved:  the freshness and flavour
How light but filling a meal this was
How easy it was to tailor the recipe and add our favourite vegies and herbs (we added corn kernal and lentils for ours)

What we didn't love as much: nothing!!
