I don’t have to storm my brain thinking about what to pack for DD’s lunch because she eats from school. At the Sunnybrook School they provide healthy lunch for kids. They put up the weeks lunch menu in their website so that parents know beforehand what is being served. In case if I am not not satisfied with a lunch I pack her something. One of the healthiest snacks I make for my kids is the brown rice and bean burrito. My next door neighbour in Toronto was the one who gave me this recipe.
cooked brown rice - 1/4 cup
shredded Cheddar - 1 tablespoon
avocado - 1/4
fresh lime juice - 1 teaspoon
1 whole wheat 8-inch tortilla
no-salt-added canned black beans - 2 tablespoons
thinly sliced or shredded carrots - 2 tablespoons
mild jarred salsa - 1 tablespoon
Mix the hot rice in the Cheddar until the cheese melts. Set it aside to cool to room temperature.
Mash the avocado and lime juice together in a small bowl till it because a paste with spreadable consistency.
Lay the tortilla out on a cutting board. Spread the mashed avocado and lime juice mix on the tortilla, leaving an outer border without any avocado. In the bottom third of the tortilla, lay out in a log shape the rice, beans, carrots and salsa. Roll over once tightly, then tuck in the sides and continue rolling. The avocado should help the burrito stay together. Cut in half. Wrap in a paper towel, followed by a layer of aluminum foil. Serve at room temperature.
