Ingredients
  • 6 large gluten-free whole grain tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided extra-virgin
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 head kale dinosaur (flat)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1 large bell pepper orange, red or yellow
  • 1 large red apple diced
  • 1 large green apple diced
  • 2 Tbsp. walnuts chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. well-stirred tahini
Guacamole
  • 2 large avocados ripe
  • 1 large lime
  • 2 Tbsp. red onion diced
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Stack the tortillas on top of each other and slice them into triangle shapes. Brush or spray them with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

  3. Meanwhile, massage the kale with your hands in a large bowl with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil, juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper to taste until the kale turns dark green and is tender. Set aside.

  4. Prepare a large bowl of ice water and set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a pinch of salt. Submerge the green beans for 1-2 minutes or until bright green and then pull them out with a slotted spoon and put them into a large bowl of ice water. Let them sit in the ice water bucket for 5 minutes then drain.

  5. Make the guacamole in a medium bowl by combining all the guacamole ingredients and mashing/mixing well.

  6. Lay the baked tortilla chips on a flat surface and top with the green beans, kale, remaining chopped veggies and guacamole. Drizzle with tahini and sprinkle with walnuts, salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

I suggest using the 365 Whole Foods Market brand of Tahini because it's thin and easy to drizzle. Other brands are thicker and will be harder to drizzle in this recipe.
