I have a few favorites at Natural Cafe, the Yogi Special, Black Bean enchilladas or Buddha Burrito and pretty much anything can be made vegan by asking for no cheese or sour cream. I’ve liked the Natural Salad for a while but wished there was more substance to it, like rice and beans and then Bob introduced me to the Tostada Salad.
Tostada Salad $9.49 Baked whole wheat tortilla topped with black beans, rice, mixed greens, carrots, jicama, salsa, sour cream, guacamole.
I ask for no sour cream, and BAM awesomeness. The salad etc is INSIDE the tortilla which makes for a little bowl. As we both enjoyed it I figured how hard can it be to make? So I threw some rice in the rice cooker, opened a can of black beans and made my own version, and for much less than the $10 it would cost at Natural Cafe.[yumprint-recipe id=’3′]
