It is a COLD COLD COLD day in Texas and I am LOVING it! Sorry for the caps and enthusiasm but this just doesn’t happen here too often, people. Y’all might have noticed a pattern with my food- I know, I know, we eat a lot of hummusy and roasted vegetable(y) foods here but hey, there is nothing wrong with that! I promise I will be more diverse over time with what recipes I post. BUT today I will post a true to me kind of recipe that I love.
This is yet another go to or us. When I am meal planning and I don’t literally want to use a single brain cell, I put this down for a couple of dinners. It is easy, healthy, versatile, colorful, warm, and even the meat eaters i’ve made this for love it too. There is no deprivation here, it is a filling meal between the thick and hearty hummus and all nutrient dense roasted veggies. If you really need to get this ish done and on the plate in no time just buy some good pre-made hummus and pesto.
Time: 30 mins or less
Serves: This recipe is pretty easy to judge how much to get to serve your crew but let me know if you have any questions J
· Tortillas ( I prefer Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortillas)
· Red bell pepper
· Yellow squash
· Red onion
· Cherry tomatoes
· Olive oil
· Goat cheese or feta cheese (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and prepare a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper
2. Chop all of your veggies, add them to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, toss on salt and pepper and stir
3. Place chopped veggies in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet and put into the oven for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
4. While your veggies are roasting make your hummus and pesto OR pull out your pre-made hummus and pesto.
5. Once veggies are roasted and out of the oven it is time to assemble the wraps!
6. Take a tortilla and spread on some hummus in a line liberally, next spread a line of pesto. Add on a good amount of roasted veggies and if you would like, top with your goat cheese or feta. Cannot even tell you how good this is with goat cheese…And the cheese helps bind these together while they are being pressed.
7. Heat up your panini press or a pan on the stove top and add your carefully wrapped bundle of goodness to it, hold everything together with a spatula before you close the panini press or put onto the stove top with the opening side down. The goal here is to just combine all the lovely flavors together for 2-3 minutes.
8. Take it off of the panini press or stove, let it cool for 5-10 minutes, then shove it in your face!
