Lightly curried vegetable wraps are one of my favorite dishes from the past. This was 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 today! Today, Lisa has switched gears and was recently mayor of our neighboring town, Solana Beach. Way to go Lisa!
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 but I even 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. Try to avoid iceberg as it has the lowest nutritional value of all the lettuce options.

You could use kale, spinach or chard if you prefer. Use it to get your greens in, right? There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, I’ve elaborated on the benefits of leafy greens and adding them to your plant-based diet is a sure way to get a boost of nutrition in your meals!
