Roasted Veggie Wrap with Bean Spread

Pin It

This is a great meal all year round. Every time I eat it, I'm surprised how filling it is! Even my husband loves it and keeps requesting it. Roasted vegetables are one of my favorite foods, and you can use whatever ones you like - below is simply a guideline. We change it up a little every time and have made them with many different combinations. Zucchini/summer squash are great options as well. The bean spread is very simple and can be customized to your taste. You can add your favorite herbs or lemon juice for a fresh burst of citrus, which we often do.


Vegan, gluten-free (with gluten-free wraps)
Makes 4 large wraps

Ingredients
2 bell peppers
1 large onion
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
8 oz. asparagus
1 cup cherry tomatoes
Fresh baby spinach
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Tortillas or other wrap of choice

{For the bean spread}
15 oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic
2/3 cup water
Optional: herbs, lemon juice

Directions
Preheat oven to 425.
Prepare the veggies: slice the bell pepper and onion into strips. Remove woody ends from asparagus and cut in half.
Toss all veggies (except spinach) in olive oil and salt.
Spread them out in a single layer on a baking pan (I use 2 pans to give enough space).
Roast for about 25 minutes, stirring halfway through.
While the vegetables are roasting, make the bean spread.
Mince garlic. In a skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and the garlic. Saute about 1 minute. Add the beans and carefully mash.
Add 2/3 cup water and let cook about 8 minutes or until thickened, stirring often. Add any optional herbs or lemon juice.
Assemble wraps: smear the bean spread along center line of tortilla, top with a generous amount of roasted veggies, and fresh spinach. Tuck in the end, and tightly roll up.

    1. Hi Nahir! They're starting to show up in my local grocery stores now, and Trader Joe's also carries some Udi's gluten free products. Here are a couple links for the store locators for La Tortilla Factory and Udi's so you can check what stores near you carry them! Otherwise you can order some online. Hope that helps - take care! :)

  4. How seriously simple and delicious! This made my apartment smell amazing. This was part of my meal prep and my boyfriend and I accidentally ate more than half the veggies just by picking at them.. Woops! What really makes this is the variety of vegetables and the natural sweetness from roasting. Thank you for this !
