By Danielle Singh
1 tablespoons olive oil (plus a little more for drizzling)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
½ cup onion, chopped
6 ounces shitake mushrooms, sliced
6 ounces roasted red peppers, chopped
pinch of sea salt
1 Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortilla
½ cup tomato sauce, unsalted
2 ounces organic mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided (or soy alternative is just as yummy)
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
Directions: 1. Preheat broiler.
2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, add garlic and onion then sauté for 2-3 minutes; add mushrooms, red peppers and sea salt; continue to cook for 5-7 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
3. Drizzle tortilla lightly with olive oil and toast under broiler until lightly crisp; be careful not to burn the edges. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over tortilla and top with 1 ounce of mozzarella, mushroom-red pepper mix and sprinkle remaining mozzarella and fresh basil. Broil again until cheese is melted and tortilla is crispy. Garnish with more fresh basil and red pepper flakes; if desired.
*Ezekiel 4:9® Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Tortillas (found in the organic freezer section) was inspired by the Holy Scripture verse: "Take also unto thee Wheat, and Barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and Spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make bread of it..." Ezekiel 4:9
It was discovered when six grains and legumes are sprouted and combined, an amazing thing happens: a complete protein is created that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs. Made from freshly sprouted organically grown grains, there are 18 amino acids present in Ezekiel 4:9. Naturally flavorful and bursting with nutrients and is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and natural fiber with no added fat. Excellent source of protein!
