These lightly curried vegetable wraps are one of my favorite dishes from the past, way before I was even thinking about going plant-based. The recipe is from Lisa Heebner who use to teach cooking classes in her home and wrote, Cooking with the Seasons. I still use her cookbook There are no beans in these burritos, but they do have hummus and they're chocked full of plant-based nutrition. You could add beans if you’d like or you can serve them as a side dish to this recipe.
You can add any veggies you like or have on hand. For these, I added sweet potato. I like to add beets sometimes. I seem to be on a curry kick, but I must say that it makes these wraps/burritos. You could throw some fresh salsa in for flavor or add hot sauce to the veggies for a kick if you don’t like curry. I also used my Edamame hummus in this recipe.
The surprise ingredient that’s cooked along with all the vegetables, is lettuce. Yes, you can cook lettuce. You could use kale, spinach or chard if you prefer. Use it to get your greens in, right? But try to avoid iceberg, it has the lowest nutritional value of all the lettuce options. If you’ve never rolled up a wrap or burrito, no worries, I’ve included a video on how to properly roll your tortilla.
Today, Lisa has switched gears and was recently mayor of our neighboring town, Solana Beach. Way to go Lisa!
