I don't know about you, but I cook ALL THE TIME. It is rare day that I don't make dinner at home. The Captain is skilled in the kitchen, but since he's the one bringing home the tempeh bacon he rarely has the the oomph at the end of a 16 hour day to make dinner. Truth is I absolutely love to cook, but there are those random days that I just can't even begin to focus on making food. This was one of those days. I was on a detox cleanse that eliminated just about anything wonderful from my diet and I was tired and I was starving. I was acting like a total head case and nothing sounded good to eat. I tasked The Captain to make me a vegan, bean free, gluten free, grain free, sugar free meal that would satisfy my hunger asap. He delivered with these amazingly delcious romaine tacos, prepare to have your mind blown with flavor and plant-based awesomeness. Serves 1 very hangry person (hungry + angry = hangry)
4 romaine leaves
1/2 bag of organic baby spinach
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1/2 jalapeño, seeded and sliced
2 green onions, green and white chopped
1 carrot, shaved using a peeler
alfafa sprouts, make sure to clean properly!
avocado, chopped (optional)
This is just so very easy, sauté onions with veggie stock or a drop of olive oil, then add green onions and jalapeños and cook until everything is soft. Throw in spinach and wilt. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in romaine leaves and top with shredded carrots, sprouts, and avocado if using. Prepare to be wowed! This is so simple, yet so satisfying and delicious. Enjoy!!!!
