Each sprouted whole-grain tortilla is also stuffed with baby spinach, black beans, spicy salsa, scallions and fresh cilantro. Recipe + photo courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.



1. Add spinach, lime juice, garlic, and salt to a food processor. Cover and pulse until minced. Transfer to a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Stir together the beans, salsa (drained of excess liquid), papaya, scallions, and cilantro.

3. Top each tortilla with the Monterey Jack cheese (or vegan cheese), spinach mixture (drained of excess liquid), then the bean mixture. One at a time, fold in sides of burrito and roll up tightly. Wrap tightly in unbleached parchment paper, then in aluminum foil, and freeze.

4. To enjoy one burrito, remove the foil and leave wrapped with the parchment paper. Place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on HI for 2 minutes and flip over. Microwave until done, about 1 1/2 minutes more. Microwave times vary. Enjoy with a fork and knife. (Hint: If desired, serve with additional papaya, a side salad, or guacamole.)
