Hey y’all! Happy Thursday eve! 🙌 I thought I’d share a really quick and easy Veggie Wrap recipe with you that’s healthy and great for on-the-go! Since I’ve been on my plant-based food journey, I sometimes struggle with feeling full and completely satisfied after meals. When I say struggle, I mean struggle.Okay okay, confession time: I’ve cheated a few times and eaten outside the parameters for a plant-based lifestyle, BUT it leaves me feeling extremely bloated and sluggish. Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat! Since it’s such an extreme lifestyle change from how I’ve eaten in the past, I do doubt myself at times and question if I can even do it! This wrap is a more hearty and filling lunch option that will give you the energy to conquer your day and your evil food demons! Stay back! It’ll definitely be a weekly staple for me now, especially considering it took a total of mayyyyyybe 5 minutes to prepare. I’ve been pinning like a maniac on Pinterest for recipes (find me here) and this was a discovery from my all too familiar late night pinning sessions… oh, the joys of insomnia!
In my opinion, hummus and avocado make the world a better place. That’s probably another reason why I’m raving about this veggie wrap… it has very simple ingredients, but is packed with so much flavor!
The full recipe is located below the pictures! Bon appetit!
VEGGIE WRAP RECIPE
Ingredients: (Makes two)
1 package microwavable rice *I used Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Medley with brown and wild rice
whole wheat or gluten free tortillas
2 tbsp hummus
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 medium carrot *thinly sliced
1/2 red bell pepper *thinly sliced
1/2 english cucumber *thinly sliced
1/2 avocado *sliced
-Cook rice according to package instructions.
-Warm tortilla in microwave (10-15 seconds)
-Spread hummus on entire tortilla (one tbsp per wrap)
-Layer spinach in a single layer to cover hummus
-Line up the rice and black beans in the center and then do the same on top of that with the avocado, peppers, carrots, and cucumbers
-Fold the edges of the tortilla and roll to make a burrito. If taking on-the-go, wrap in foil.
Told you it was easy! I’ll admit though…it’s not the prettiest thing to photograph after you’ve started eating it and on another note, I also realized I’m absolutely terrible at wrapping burritos. #selfdiscovery #burritofail I definitely have subpar wrapping skills and could never work at Moe’s…not that I could anyway because I’d lose all self control and drown myself to death eating queso all day. SO.GOOD. Amiright? But anyway, let me know if you make this or if you have any suggestions so I can further master my burrito skills! Practice makes perfect! Stay healthy, sugarplum! (and I’ll stay away from Moe’s queso!) Also, don’t forget to check out the Monthly Edit for March in the Menu! Lots of cute trends!
