Quick and Easy Lunch!

I’ve been on a mission lately… to bring lunch from home. Believe me, getting salmonella will make you re-think everything you eat! Unfortunately, bringing lunch from home can become a lot of work and eventually boring if you rely on the same quick and easy meals. This week I’ve been branching out creating some new vegan sandwich combos, mostly dependent on beans and my vegan cashew cheese. Today’s recipe is really really simple with 4 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to make.


Vegan Black Bean and Edamame Wrap:

1 Vegan Wheat Wrap

.5 Cup Rinsed Canned Black Beans

.25 Cup Pan Roasted Edamame (I quickly pan sear frozen edamame, it makes the sandwich taste fancy!)

Herbed Cashew Cheese as much as your heart desires

Salt to taste

Lay out the wrap flat and mash the black beans against  the bread. Then sprinkle on your edamame and cashew cheese. Because I’m a salt addict I sprinkle some sea salt onto the mashed beans before I wrap it up. If possible before serving, sear in a pan or in a toaster oven.  You can make this meal the night before, its fine the next day for lunch.

I also wanted to update you on my marathon training schedule. I’m back on track with a modified schedule. I had to take out one of the 20 mile runs but I think I will be fine. Hopefully my body appreciated the long rest it got! Are any of you training for a marathon? If so have you had to modify your schedules at all?
