  • 2-3 heads of romaine
  • 2 cans of black beans
  • Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids, to taste
  • Cumin, to taste
  • Cayenne, to taste
  • Chili powder, to taste
  • 1 cup of corn kernels
  • 24 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 cup of salsa


  • For the shell, pull apart 12 leaves from heads of romaine (pull out the ones near the center, because they're the crunchiest). Rinse and drain over a paper towel.
  • For black beans: Cook in their juice in a saucepan over medium heat for a few minutes. Drain and return to saucepan. Spray with Bragg's liquid amino acids. Add cayenne, chili powder, and cumin to taste. Stir and reheat until heated through.
  • For frozen corn, if using: In a saucepan, bring a little layer of water to a boil. Add about a half a bag of frozen corn. Put a lid on it and simmer until warmed.
  • Layer romaine leaves with black beans, then corn, then tomatoes, then avocado chunks. Drizzle salsa on top and serve.
