Kidney bean wraps – with avocado purée and vegetable strips

Fibre is a vital, health-promoting part of our food and is particularly important for the health of the intestine. One portion of this simple and easy-to-prepare dish provides half of the recommended daily intake of fibre.


Ingredients for 2 persons:

2 wraps (or alternatively pancakes)
250 g kidney beans, cooked, drained (from a tin, or soaked and cooked at home)
1 tsp tahini (sesame paste)
2 pinches of ground cumin
Chilli peppers to taste
1 clove of garlic
80 ml olive oil

Avocado purée (Guacamole):
1 avocado
1 lime
1 tomato
Chilli peppers
Olive oil



Fresh vegetables:
50 g red pepper
50 g sugar snap peas
50 g carrots
50 g baby sweetcorn (mini corn on the cob)
50 g courgette
Parsley, chives
Salt, pepper


Tip: Replace chilli peppers with chilli threads to make the dish less spicy but still retain all the flavours.


Preparation (c. 30 mins):

Drain the kidney beans.

Wash and clean the vegetables, and cut into strips.

Use a small mixer to roughly chop and blend the kidney beans. Add the tahini, chilli, salt, olive oil and cumin and mix briefly, then season to taste.

Place the bean mix in the wraps and fold over to enclose the mixture. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for c. 15 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 100° C.

Fry all of the chopped vegetables together in a pan with olive oil for c. 5 mins. The vegetables should still be a little crunchy. Season with salt and pepper. Finally mix in the chopped herbs.

Peel the avocado, mash with a fork in a bowl and mix straight away with the lime juice as this slows the browning of the avocado and the purée retains its fresh colour. Alternatively, purée the avocado in a vegetable mill. Core the tomatoes, slice into small pieces and add to the avocado. Season the purée to taste with olive oil, salt and finely chopped chilli pepper.
