Black Sprout Tortillas

...which I find is a funny name for it, because "blekksprut" (ink-sprout, hah!) means octopus in Norwegian! Worry not though - no octopi were killed in the making, in fact - no animals were!

I saw this recipe the other day, and knew I had to make it, and that soon soon! The only thing that I missed, was black beans, which were easy enough to obtain, and voila! This simple, tasty, and filling dish came to life, yum! You don't have to cook the beans in the beginning, you could stuff the tortillas and then heat them up in the oven, I just figured I might as well as I made a couple of "tortilla pancakes" anyway.

Black Sprout Tortillas
(Serves 1, about 390 calories without tortillas as it may vary)

Half a 400g can of black beans (120g drained), rinsed
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp chilli powder, OR 1/3 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1/3 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper
50g crumbled feta
3 (50g) Brussels sprouts, finely sliced/shredded
Fresh or dry cilantro, parsley or coriander
1 tsp honey
1tsp coconut oil (melted) or 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
2 corn or wholemeal tortillas to serve

- First, have the blackbeans in a small pot and heat up on medium-low heat. Add the spices, salt, pepper, and chilli, and mash. Set aside on low heat to keep warm, and swirl through a good squeeze of lime.

- In a bowl, mix the chopped up Brussels sprouts, some salt and pepper, cilantro/coriander/parsley, honey and oil plus another good squeeze of lime.

- Get your tortillas out! Divide the Brussels mixture between two tortillas, quickly crumble the feta into the bean mix and swirl throughbefore topping the greens with it. Roll up, and enjoy!
