  • 1 tsp. + 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. natural soy-based butter spread
  • 4 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • ¼ tsp. toasted cumin
  • ⅛ tsp. ground rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or sliced
  • ½ tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. tamari
  • 4 tortillas

Corn-Tomato Salsa:

  • 1 cup sweet white corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, diced
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • ¼ bunch cilantro, leaves removed and chopped
  • 1 tbsp. flaxseed oil
  • ¼ tsp. umeboshi vinegar (from pickled Japanese plums)


Thoroughly wash all vegetables. Combine all salsa ingredients and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil and butter spread in large sauté pan at medium-high heat. Add sweet onions. Cook until brown, stirring occasionally. Remove onions, set aside. Add chicken, cumin and rosemary to pan. Cook until chicken is brown on both sides. Remove from pan, let cool and cut into thin strips. Set aside. Return pan to medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp. olive oil, garlic and ginger; cook 1 minute. Add chicken and tamari; cook 2 minutes. Layer each tortilla with onions, chicken and rice slices. Fold in half, press, and place in large sauté pan at medium heat. Cook until light brown on both sides. Slice into quarters, serve with salsa and enjoy. Serves 4-6.

Tip: Onions contain beneficial natural compounds such as indoles that stimulate the release of disease-fighting enzymes in the body.
