40 Meatless Meals: Fresh Tortillas, Guacamole, and Caprese Salad

Since finding this recipe for homemade tortillas last year, I have never bought them from the supermarket. That's because my East Coast supermarket lacks a tortilla lady in the bakery unlike the grocery stores of my Texas childhood. Avocados are in season in the spring; you can substitute cubed block mozzarella for the fresh.

Flour tortillas

3 avocados, mashed
splash of olive oil
juice of one lemon
pinch of diced fresh jalapenos
a couple cloves of garlic, minced
pinch of salt
pinch of cumin

Min all ingredients together. Let rest 5 minutes, then serve.

Tomato Mozzarella salad
1 tub of fresh mozarella or a block of mozarella, cubed
1 pint of cherry tomatoes or a couple large ones, cubed
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
a little basil if you have some

Toss all the ingredients together. Serves 4-6.
