I have a long, long list of sandwiches to try from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day, and I'm going to slowly make my way down that list of yummy delights. This week I finally made the High Protein Wraps, which caught my eye the very first time I opened that book.
We both really loved this dinner. Instead of being delicate and making the filling last for four wraps, I divvied it up into 3 portions for 3 giant wraps. The filling is a quinoa-white bean salad
All together, the various elements came together to create an explosion of flavor. This baby really packs a punch! I especially loved the crisp, clean crunch of the cukes and bell peppers, along with the rich tapenade.
While I have a yummy pack of tortillas in the fridge, I decided to also make the Chickpea Shawarma wraps - even though the recipe called for pita breads, I figured this would be an okay sub. When I told Mr. VE&T what we were having for dinner, he said "huh. I don't really like chickpeas" (he often makes this claim). However, as soon as he took his first bite, he said "Oh wow! Is there more?!" So, that's pretty great. The chickpeas are roasted with some lovely spices to give them a lot of a flavor and a little bite, plus the fresh tomatoes & lettuce and some amazing tahini sauce. The whole concoction is a total win. We both loved these!
Both of these delicious wraps, the High Protein Wraps and the Chickpea Shawarma are recipes I will definitely make again - but first I have to make my way through some more of my long list of sandwiches recipes to try for the first time! This book just keeps on givin'!
