Mexican Bean Salad with Tortillas (v)

Whenever I go to a certain up market food store for a posh sarnie, I am always tempted by the mexican bean wraps. And always, always, always, without fail, they are a big disappointment: soggy, flaccid and tasteless. Bleck. This recipe on the other hand is spicy, vibrant and refreshing. My DH declared it “really nice” which is high praise indeed. You have been warned…

For 4-6 portions you need:
1 can mixed bean salad in water, drained
1 can sweetcorn, drained
1 red pepper, diced into pieces about the same size as a sweetcorn kernel
1 red onion, diced
8 radishes, diced
1/2 small bag fresh coriander, chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander tbsp red wine vinegar
juice 1 lemon and 1 lime
1 chilli, finely chopped
zest 1 lime
1 avocado, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp good quality cold pressed rape seed oil
salt and pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 large, beefsteak tomato, chopped

To serve:
Vegan cheese (optional)
Tomato salsa
Vegan sour cream (optional)

Mix all the ingredients for the salad together in a large bowl and leave to marinate for about 30 mins or so. When ready to eat, spoon the mixture into the centre of a tortilla and top with whatever you fancy (or indeed leave au natural). Fold up the tortilla and scoff, scoff, scoff. Yumsome 🙂
