peony deliciousness

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  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.
