Omega Breakfast Burrito
Omega 3 - an essential nutrient that our bodies need but cannot produce. So how do we get enough? We have to eat the right food. This gluten free burrito, topped with Omega Crunch Roasted Garlic Shelled Flax is a great place to start!
-2Tbsp organic coconut flour
-4 egg whites with omega 3 added (save yolks for burrito filling)
-¼ tsp baking powder
-¼ tsp xanthan gum
-2 Tbsp water
-Olive oil (for pan cooking)
-150g ground chicken breast (or extra lean ground beef)
-½ yellow onion (diced)
-4 egg yolks (from above)
-1 medium tomato (diced)
-2 tsp paprika
-1 tsp Omega Crunch Roasted Garlic Shelled Flax
-A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (more if you like it spicy!)
-Sea salt & cracked black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients (except the olive oil) in a food processor and pulse until well blended and there are no lumps. Heat about 2 tsp olive oil over medium heat in a pan. Add approx. 5 Tbsp of mixture to the pan and tilt the pan to spread the batter to get a thin tortilla. Or use the flat edge of a spatula to gently spread the batter out on the pan. Cook until edge begin to brown, then flip. Be careful not flip too soon as the tortilla will tear.
Cook chicken or ground beef in a medium pan. Add onion. Once the onion becomes transparent, add the egg yolks, tomato, paprika, flax and crushed red pepper flakes. Sea salt and pepper to taste. Filling is done once the egg is cooked. Top with Omega Crunch Roasted Garlic Shelled Flax for added nutrients.
