Recipe of the Week

So, in light of the Eat More Veggie's post, I thought I'd post the veggie wrap that I've been eating daily for lunch. It's super easy and is yummy and filling....

Veggie Wrap

  • 1 red (or yellow or orange) pepper, chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped (or you can use cherry tom's cut in half)
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 2 avocado's, chopped
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raisins
Toss veggies with your favourite salad dressing (I'll post mine below). Spread hummous down the centre of a tortilla, top with greens and veggies. Sometimes I'll even through a little goat cheese in the mix. Roll and enjoy! You'll definitely have some filling left over, since I have to make extra of everything to share with my little one!

I have 2 different dressing that I love to use, depending on my mood. The first is a balsamic vinegrette, the second is a curried honey.

Maple Balsamic Dressing (from the Whitewater cookbook)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (unrefined)
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
Shake to combine.

Honey-Curry Dressing
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (unrefined)
Whisk ingredients together (or place in a jar and shake until combined.)
