Healthy Veggie Wrap

To some, the word “vegetarian” strikes fear of an unfulfilling, bland meal.  This recipe will make the most finicky of meat eaters put down their knives!

  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup prepared humus
  • handful of chopped lettuce
  • sliced pickled jalapeno peppers to taste (optional, but it will add a nice kick!)
  • 1 whole wheat wrap
  • 1/2 block of firm tofu cut into cubes (optional)

Start by pre-cutting all the ingredients. Assemble the wrap, spread hummus over the middle.  Add sliced avocado, and layer on lettuce, peppers, and tomato slices.  Finally add the tofu. Wrap the ingredients like a burrito.  Place in a toaster oven at 275 degrees F, and heat for 10 minutes.  If you have a panini maker or sandwich maker, that would be even better.

Feel free to modify and add olives, artichoke hearts, beans or shredded carrots. Serve hot and enjoy!
