Mexican Bean Pitta

There are a few things I miss doing Slimming World. One of them is cake and another is Mexican food. Apart from chilli, there’s not much I can eat that doesn’t require me saving a silly amount of syns during the week. If only tortilla wraps were free! But, all is not lost. I found a good substitute to replace the beloved burritos I used to gorge on.

Mexican Bean Pitta
  • Wholemeal pitta (Healthy extra B or 6 syns)
  • Lettuce, chopped
  • Tomato, chopped
  • 1 tin of kidney beans
  • Large handful of coriander, chopped
  • 4 Spring onions, sliced
  • Lemon juice
  • Tabasco
  • Salt
  1. Pour the tin of beans with their weird bean juice into a saucepan and heat through for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the beans, return to the pan and mash.
  3. Stir in the coriander, spring onions, lemon juice, salt and as much tabasco as you can handle
  4. Toast a pitta bread, split it in half and fill with lettuce, as much of the bean filling as you want and then top with tomatoes.
  5. Feast.

This was a great, filling lunch for me. I decided to have 2 of these beasts but it was a bit too much for even my stomach to handle. I reckon leftover rice, low syn vegan mayo and some cheezly would make these even better. Avocado would be great for anyone not following a diet but at 6 syns per 28 grams it’s just not worth it…damn you all…
