This summer spice up your grilling menu with a spicy veggie wrap recipe made with vegetarian patties, fresh baby spinach, red bell peppers and an intriguing sesame garlic ginger sauce.
A delicious and healthy meatless alternative, this spicy veggie wrap recipe makes an awesome light lunch or a great addition to a grilling menu and it’s full of flavor.
This veggie wrap is very satisfying and a great way to enjoy a grilling party. You don’t need all that meat to spend great time with family and friends, meatless is just as delicious and fulfilling. And a vegetarian patty is the perfect product to help savor flavor. You can easily throw one of these in a burger or even a sandwich.
For this time I decided on a spicy veggie wrap recipe, simply because I never tried one of these, I wanted to see how good I am at handling a wrap and the result was incredibly delicious and nutritious.
I served black bean burgers with a bit of sour cream and they were really yum too but I have to give the thumbs up to my wrap. It’s light and fresh and a tiny wrap is super satisfying for me. Seriously I never realized meatless can be so delicious!
I had lots of fun making these wraps, I laughed at myself so much! After stumbling on a little issue with the pita bread which stubbornly refused to roll and make a nice wrap although it was pretty thin, I realized for the wrapping to work, the bread has to be cut around the edges and I should only use one side of the pita. I also learned wrapping should start with tucking in the bottom first. Learning from your own mistakes is awesome! Make your life easier and use a regular wrap bread, just my 2 cents here.
Wanna know what other awesome tip I’ve learned? Refrain from stuffing your face with delicious spicy wraps while you make them, until you finish taking some pics of your beautiful work, or your whole body will start shaking with energy and your photos will end up blurry. Dully noted!
The sesame garlic ginger sauce was absolutely divine! I will definitely use this sauce on more meatless dishes. It gave the wrap so much flavor.
