This delightfully healthy Black Bean Salsa Spinach Wrap recipe uses shaved brussels sprouts, chopped kale, black beans, corn, tomatoes, green peppers, and red onions with delicious red wine vinegar inside of a spinach wrap! A super simple lunch that you need to try today!
Whether you’re back from a vacation or the holiday break, getting back to mindful, healthy eating is sometimes a challenge.
Why? Because maybe you got comfortable during the break. You got used to eating a little more carelessly or, maybe you completely indulged and enjoyed every minute of it! That’s ok. Life is all about balance, right? All you have to do is get back on track.
Easier said than done, I know. The last place anyone wants to be in after being away from home is inside a kitchen. I remember coming back from a 10-day long vacation and being completely unmotivated to cook. It was almost like I got off the plane and had to quickly jump back into my daily routine.
That’s why I love simple lunch recipes, like this spinach wrap. They always save the day!
Black Bean Salsa Spinach Wrap with Brussels Sprouts
This Black Bean Salsa Spinach Wrap is light, meatless, flavorful, easy to make, and requires no cooking! You can whip it all up in a matter of minutes without turning on the stove. Making this black bean salsa is by far my favorite part of this recipe. You mix all the ingredients together with olive oil and red wine vinegar then you try not to eat the entire thing with a spoon. Trust me, it’s hard because it’s so delicious!
Once you make and chill the black bean salsa, you simply top the spinach tortilla wrap with kale, brussels sprouts, and the black bean salsa. Fold the top and bottom, then fold the sides and cut in half. That’s it! Be careful not to go overboard on the red wine vinegar because it will dampen the spinach tortilla wrap and the wrap will break apart. Not cool.
