With spring here and summer approaching, wraps seem to make their way back into my kitchen. This is a simple recipe that is easy to create and does not take much effort or skills in the kitchen. My goal is to show you that veganism can be easy to make, and inexpensive. This wrap will awaken your taste buds!
Avocado Portobello Wrap
- 1 packaged of Portobello mushrooms (cut into thin strips and washed)
- 1 avocado
- 1 tbsp. diced onion
- ¼ to ½ tomato diced
- 1 tsp lime juice
- Handful of spinach
- 2 romaine leaves chopped
- Small amount of red cabbage chopped into small pieces
- About ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- Pinch of garlic powder
- 2 medium size tortilla wraps (any flavor you like)
- 1 tbsp. vegan Caesar dressing (the brand “Just” makes a great one!)
In a non-stick pan on medium, sauté the mushrooms until they are well cooked (they will become soft with meat like consistency), this takes about 4-7 minutes. Once they are well cooked, turn the heat to low and add in the balsamic, maple syrup and garlic powder. Let them absorb the sauce. While you are cooking the mushrooms, feel free to start on the guacamole. Cut the avocado in half and take the seed out. In a small bowl, scoop the avocado into it and mash until it is smooth. Then, add the onion, tomato, and lime and mix until you create a simple guacamole. Lay out your tortilla shells on a flat surface. Evenly spread the guacamole on the shells. Layer the spinach, cabbage, romaine lettuce, and mushrooms. Add the caesar dressing, tuck the sides of the tortilla inwards and carefully roll the wraps. If you wish, cut them in half and enjoy this little bundle of health!
Note: The shells I used to make the wraps were on the small side. I made two wraps using the ingredients listed. If you use a large shell, these ingredients will more than likely only fill up one. Feel free to double the recipe if you’re using large shells.
