Cooking time: 20-30 minutes
Assembly: 5 minutes
Being vegan doesn’t imply that you have to rely on faux meat and cheese, nor does it necessarily mean that you have to recreate the wheel when it comes to making food…or in this case, wraps! I completely understand though, sometimes we will have ‘cravings’, but when we can we should strive to prepare healthy, nutritious and authentic dishes. We should take enjoyment in what nature has to offer us- like pulses and legumes…and on that note, we decided to make a lentil wrap!
We took it upon ourselves and completed some meal prep; one batch of lentils and bean and red pepper dip prepared! Check out our recipe for the dip. It took a little bit of time… but it just means that our meal prep for the following days drops from thirty minutes to approximately ten …brilliant!
NB: Wraps can be quick and nutritious, although some do contains higher levels of salt and/ or fats…so make sure to always read the label! We also recommend choosing a wholemeal, wholegrain or seeded variety. 🙂
50g Cooked brown or green lentils
Fresh salad veggies
1 Stick of celery
4 Black/pitted olives
124g Butterbean and red pepper dip/spread
1 Standard seeded, multigrain or GF tortilla wrap
Rinse and prepare the lentils according to the packet instructions. Drain. Rinse under cool water. Allow to drain. Lightly season (if desired).
Wash, dry and prepare all of your intended ‘wrap’ veggies!
Wash, trim the ends and slice the celery into sticks. Drain and wash the olives.
Measure and place the dip into a small dish/bowl.
Warm your wrap in the microwave according to the packet instructions.
Prepare the wrap
Spoon a couple of spoonfuls of the dip (from your dish) down the middle of the wrap. Spoon and spread the lentils over the dip with a spoon.
Place your smaller salad veggies over the lentils….
…followed by any lettuce or leaves you’re using.
~Fold or roll up your wrap!~
Lunch is served! Place your wrap onto a serving plate or board. Serve with the remaining dip and vegetables. NB: We separated the celery, olives and any leftover veggies from the wrap (to avoid making our wrap soggy from any remaining veggie water!).
