A wonderful trip to the Farmer's Market yielded these beauties.
Full and Fragrant
Delicate, yet robust
I am thoroughly enjoying the purples that are surrounding me. Including delicious purple cabbage. I made this Creamy Avocado and White Bean with Slaw last night. Delicious, delicious, delicious!
creamy avocado and white bean wrap is found at eattingwell.com. It is a wrap recipe, but being gluten free (and not having a gluten free wrap on hand) I just served without the wrap and it was wonderful. The chipotle chile in adobo sauce was a treat for the senses.
2 TB. cider vinegar
1 TB canola oil
2 t. finely chopped canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
1/4 t. salt
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1- 15 ounce can white beans, rinsed
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 TB minced red onion or green onion
4 8-10 inch whole wheat wraps or tortillas
whisk vinegar, oil, chipotle chile and salt in medium bowl. Add cabbage, carrot and cilantro; toss to combine. mash beans and avocado in another medium bowl with a potato masher or fork. Stir in cheese and onion.
To serve, spread about 1/2 cup bean-avocado mixture onto a wrap and top with about 2/3 cup cabbage-carrot slaw, roll up and serve.
I grew up experimenting in art and creativity. I held the belief, and still do, that "I can make that." Not in a smug way, but in a way to challenge myself. Creativity helps keep me connected to the world around me. I am lucky to have a supportive family which includes my husband and three growing children (one attending college).
