These bean lettuce wraps from Eat To Live are pretty easy to prepare and are very tasty!
2 cups cooked or canned no-salt-added or low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 large, ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed [we used whole avocado]
1/2 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 green onions, chopped [we used 1 onion]
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup mild no-salt-added or low-sodium salsa [we used a spicy homemade mango salsa]
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
8 large romaine lettuce leaves
In a bowl, mash the beans and avocado together with a fork until well blended and only slightly chunky. Add all the remaining ingredients except the lettuce and mix.
Place approximately 1/4 cup of mixture in the center of each lettuce leaf and roll up like burrito.
We added extra salsa on top before eating, but we LOVE salsa!
