Servings: Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ whole wheat lavash or whole wheat 8-inch tortilla
  • 1 egg + 1 teaspoon water
  • ½ teaspoon trans fat free margarine or oil
  • 1 Tablespoon reduced fat shredded cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon mashed pinto beans, or other bean
  • 1-2 Tablespoons chopped tomato

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl whisk together the egg and water. Then, heat a small pan with the margarine or oil on medium heat. When melted, pour the eggs in and cook for 1-2 minutes until no longer runny. You can flip the eggs once if you are able to do so. Place the cheese on the eggs and fold over to melt the cheese.
  2. Warm the lavash or tortilla in a microwave or hot plate if desired. Spread the mashed beans, then place the cooked egg, and tomato along side. Fold up tightly, folding in sides first, then rolling. Cut in half if desired. The burrito is best eaten hot, but without the tomato, it will heat well in microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Be sure not to burn your mouth eating it though!
