Kohlrabi Burrito

Cowboy Energy Burritos
makes 6 burritos
6 large burrito tortilla or wraps ( I used Tortilla Factory Low Carb Whole Wheat Tortillas)
1 baked beans recipe
1 kohlrabi-carrot slaw recipe
Baked Beans recipe:
adapted from All Recipes
2- 15oz cans Northern white beans or Navy beans, not drained
1/2 cup vegan bacon, turkey bacon, or bacon w/o nitrates
1 red onion, finely diced
3 Tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
In a medium pot, cook bacon on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Add the red onions and continue sauteing for another 5-7 minutes. Add the beans and the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes until the mixture has thicken. Stir often so that the beans will not stick to the bottom of the pot. Remove from oven and cool. Can use the same day or store to use the following day.
The slaw does not have a lot of ingredients because beans have a lot of flavor. The slaw adds a contrast to the burrito and adds more fiber and veggies to the dish.
Kholrabi-Carrot Slaw
2 Kohlrabi, purple or green, peeled
4 carrots, peeled
1 avocado
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
First, make sure to peel the outer layer of the kohlrabi, so if it is purple, peel all the purple layer to get your veggie. Same with the green kohlrabi. Cut each in half.
In a food processor, use the grater option to shred the carrots and kohlrabi. You can also use a hand grater if you do not have a food processor.
Puree your avocado, or mash it and mix in the spices and apple cider vinegar until well blended. Add the avocado mixture to the slaw and mix well. The avocado subs for the mayonnaise and oil that regular slaws ask for.
