Veggie Wrap Delight
1/4 cup of Vegenaise*
1 Tbsp. of fresh lime juice
1 tsp. of grated lime peel
4 8-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
2 cups of fresh spinach leaves, washed and
well-dried with stems removed
1 small ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and cut
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1/2 can (14 oz.) of refried beans
How we make it
In a small bowl, combine the Vegenaise, lime juice
and lime peel. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for
15-20 seconds on high to make it easier for you to roll them.
Spread each tortilla evenly with the Vegenaise mixture.
Arrange the spinach leaves on top of each tortilla, then
the avocado slices, and the bell pepper. If using the refried
beans, spread about 1 Tbsp. on each tortilla.
Roll the tortillas up tightly.
Place the seam sides down on the serving plates.
*Note: As an alternative to the Vegenaise lime mixture,
use a prepared hummus, yogurt-cucumber dip, low fat
flavored cream cheese, salsa, baba ganoush, or mustard.
Other Options: Try arugula instead of spinach. Add any other
type of bean, grated zucchini, tomatoes, shredded cabbage,
onions, mushrooms and/or chopped cucumbers.
