Healthy Lunch Idea: Avocado Salad with Homemade Spelt Tortillas, Yum!

Salad and Spelt Tortillas SS

I wanted to eat light for lunch and I decided to check out what I had in the refrigerator.  Perfect!!  I had some leftover salad from last night’s dinner and this was a perfect base for a lunch salad.

All I did was add an avocado and for protein, I pulled out some frozen chickpeas I had tucked away in the freezer.  It was the first time that I had used frozen chickpeas in my salad and I’m impressed at how delicious and fresh they are after defrosting them!

Here are the ingredients for this Chickpea, Avocado Salad:

Since I rarely measure when I make salads, I will only list the ingredients, you can decide the quantities-

  • cherry tomatoes
  • english cucumber
  • celery
  • orange peppers
  • romaine lettuce
  • frozen chickpeas (thawed)
  • 1 avocado
  • cold pressed olive oil (about 1/8th of a cup)- the olive oil infused with garlic or herbs is fantastic (you must try it instead of regular olive oil).
  • pink Himalayan Salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • sprinkled with cumin

To compliment this nutrition-packed salad, I was craving for a nice warm, homemade tortilla.  So, since I’ve been itching to try making tortillas with Spelt flour (here is the link to the recipe here), I jumped right in.  Wow!!  I can’t believe how good these are!! All I did for the Spelt Tortillas is follow this simple, wheat tortilla recipe and substituted the regular wheat flour for Spelt flour (I used the light Spelt flour).
