Quite often I sit at work bored out of my mind day dreaming about what I can have for dinner and that is often where my ideas for blog posts come from too. I wanted to make something Mexican inspired that wasn’t too heavy on the calories but still absolutely delicious. This is what I came up with! 🙂
- A small head of cauliflower. (I got mine in the reduced section at Tesco for 79p)
- A large handful of brown lentils.
- 5 cherry tomatoes.
- 2 red onions.
- Fajita spice packet. (Again Tesco have a cheaper own brand range that I used here.)
- 4 cloves garlic.
- Some alfalfa sprouts. (Optional but a nice nutritional hit.)
- Fresh baby leaf spinach, about two handfuls.
- A mild shop brought salsa or if you have time you can make your own.
- Wholemeal tortilla wraps.
Rinse your lentils in cold water and then place in a pan and simmer for about 25 minutes or until reasonably soft.
Heat a small amount of oil in a pan. Peel and finely chop your onion and garlic and place in the pan.
Peel the leaves from your head of cauliflower. Now you can either grate it or you can place the cauliflower in a blender with the grater attachment. Once complete place in the pan with the onion and garlic and mix thoroughly.
Now add the fajita spice, mix through and turn the heat down whilst you wait for then lentils to cook.
Once the lentils are down, drain and then mix in with the cauliflower rice. You may wish to add more spice here. I added some black pepper, mainly because I really like it! 😛
Chop up your spinach, sprouts and cherry tomatoes and place in a salad bowl. I also like to place the fajita mix in a bowl and the tortillas on a plate so everyone can just help themselves.
This recipe makes enough for four large wraps and it’s super healthy.
