Ingredients

For Jalapeno Lime Avocado Crema
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 avocado
  • 2-6 slices of Jalapeño
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • dash of salt

Directions

  1. Saute the onions and green peppers in a pre-heated skillet with a generous drizzle of olive oil.  Add a little salt so that the onions start to give off their moisture.  
  2. While they are cooking add all of the ingredients for the Crema into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. If it's a little too thick add warm water until it reaches your desired consistency. 
  3. Once the onions and peppers are translucent add the tomatoes. Saute for another 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Add the cumin, chili powders and chica adobo and saute until fragrant. 
  5. Add the black beans, wheat berries and the juice of half of a lime. Reserve the other half of the lime to serve with the bowls.
  6. Add a handful of the cilantro and stir in until slightly wilted. 
  7. Divide the grain mixture between 4 bowls. Top with radish, green onion, cilantro and sliced avocado. Add a generous spoonful of crema to each bowl and serve.
