Veg. Frankie

Cooking Friday night dinner is one among the toughest dilemma I face. I want variety food that can be cooked quickly without putting much efforts. Also it should be filling and now the latest criteria is, it needs to be healthy as well. After going through half an hour brainstorming session, I came up with this idea and was happy that I could use all little leftover veggies and tofu. 

I am sure regular plain flour tortilla would taste better but that would not fit my 'healthy' criteria :) I used jalapeno sauce and taco sauce to bring moisture, but I believe, you can play with these ingredients. Salsa, sour cream or even conventional coriander chutney should equally taste fine. 

Anyway, this is perfect example of tasty yet healthy and easy dish!
