Edible Salad Bowls


You know if you just make an edible salad bowl, its easier to clean up the kitchen after you serve the salads.

Here is the Rock and Roll Cafe's way of making an Edible Salad Bowl!


We use flour tortillas. But you can also make tiny ones with egg roll skins.

Put about 3 1/2 to 4 inches of oil in a pot and heat to about 375°F .

Now when that oil is hot, lay one of the torillas on the surface and then gently submerge it with a ladle to create a basket shape. The edges should curl up around the sides of the ladle back.
As the picture shows, the indentation is made by the pressure of the ladle as you hold the tortilla under the hot oil.
Do it til its golden and crispy and remove carefully with slotted spatula to a paper towel. Let it drain up-side down to remove most oil.
What can you fill it with?
Oh, here is the good part!
Mix together crumbled hot ground beef, sauteed peppers, sauteed onion, kidney or black or Pink beans, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, and top with Salsa of your choice and some non dairy sour cream.
Black beans help fight cancer they say so try to get used to using them in your salads. They are delicious.
I will post our Cuban Black Bean soup recipe to prove it to you!
