  • 5 oz Fresh Express Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 yields Lime Juice Raw
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 15 oz Canned Black Beans
  • 1 cup Chunky Salsa Hot
  • 2/3 cup Papayas
  • 3 stalk scallion(s)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 6 Sprouted Whole Grain Tortilla
  • 6 oz shredded Monterey jack cheese


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.)
