Ohhhh man I just had the most delicious lunch ever. Sometimes it’s nice to go somewhere you know you love but try something new, and have it made for you rather than throwing it together yourself. Today was one of those days for me. I went to the Juice Joint Cafe since I ran out of time to pack my lunch this morning, and with the cold/rainy weather, had to convince myself to go outside. My standby there is a Roasted Veggie & Mozz Sandwich but I was in the mood for something different, and something warm, so I looked at the Hot Sandwich/Wrap list. There’s been one on there calling my name for some time, so today I finally went with it, and was SO glad I did.
Plantain a la Cubana: Grilled plantains, black beans, sour cream, brown rice, lettuce and tomato. Served on your choice of tortilla.
I ordered it on a whole wheat wrap, and it did not disappoint.
It was pretty massive, but it was too good for me to leave some behind. Take a look inside the wrap:
Loaded with plantains, black beans, brown rice, and veggies. It was amaaazing. This may be my new go-to there, and definitely something I plan to recreate at home. I love plantains and they are so cheap at the grocery store, so this would be pretty easy to whip up at home and maybe make into a salad version. I also had a small side salad:
With organic greens, tomatoes, carrots, and cucumbers. It was the perfect supplement to the wrap. I kind of wish I could rewind and have lunch again, it was that good. Plus, I’d rather eat than do work, but I don’t think that makes me unique.
