Shopping is different now, lots of things are different now. Being stuck at home is not how we used to live, but it can bring us certain advantages too. Our dogs and cats are over the moon to have us home all the time. Mine certainly are, they’re just so happy I’m always around.
Some of my friends are incredibly bored and don’t know what to do with their time. I, on the other hand, have been keeping so busy that the days sometimes do not seem to have enough hours. I am beginning to wonder how on Earth I got all these things done before when I left the house to drive to work and stayed away nearly all day? Unless I had some superpowers back then, I have no clue how I managed it all.
Besides cooking – because that’s what we’re going to talk about; a recipe is coming up – I have been blogging on my websites and working on my books. One is in the final editing stage and I’m still writing the other one (the sequel). No, it’s not a cookbook, it’s fiction, but it is related to what I write about here on this site. Perhaps soon I will reveal more about my book, because I am really excited about it.

So, back to food, because that’s what we’re here for.
During the time I spend at home I have also experimented in the kitchen – it is my favorite room. Everything happens in the kitchen, doesn’t it? On some days I made some elaborate meals which took some time to prepare, but today I thought I would make something quick and simple, a vegetable mix that I can use for vegan veggie wraps.
Easy to Make
Veggie wraps are a popular snack. They are easy to make, and the preparation time is less than fifteen minutes.
The following recipe is enough for 10 burrito wraps. The burrito wraps are the big ones that you can stuff with plenty of fillings. So, one wrap will leave you feeling pretty full. This recipe is perfect for a family. If you live alone, you can make the same amount and store it in the fridge. Then, whenever you feel hungry, you can just heat some tortillas and add some of the veggies and have your wrap ready in two minutes.
Besides tortillas, you could also use this veggie mix on bagels, toast, or rolls. For extra flavor, guacamole and salsa are nice choices.
Veggie Wraps Recipe
What do you need for my veggie wraps?
- Approx. 4 – 5 cups of water
- Burrito wraps (big size tortillas)
- Olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 head of cauliflower (I used orange cauliflower)
- 2 small Yukon gold potatoes
- 1 carrot (julienned)
- ½ green Bell pepper
- 1 Portobello mushroom
- 6 white mushrooms
- 1 ½ handful of fresh parsley
- Bring water to the boil
- Chop cauliflower into small pieces and add to boiling water
- Cook on low heat for three minutes
- Chop potatoes into small pieces and cut carrot into julienne strips (You can also slice the carrot if you prefer that; I just like to cut carrots in thick julienne strips)
- Simmer for 7 minutes
- In the meantime, cut up the portobello mushroom and the Bell pepper and fry in olive oil
- Chop 6 mushrooms and add to the pan
- Cut up parsley, and add one handful to the boiling vegetables and the rest in the frying pan.
- Fry on low heat for 7 – 8 minutes
- When cauliflower, potatoes, and carrot are boiled soft, turn of the heat, and drain the pot
- When mushrooms are browned, turn off the heat, add boiled vegetables to the pan and mix well
- Heat tortillas on a comal
- When tortillas are heated, spoon the veggie mix in the middle of the tortilla. If you like to add vegan cheese, Daiya mozzarella is a good choice, or any other veggie cheese that you prefer.
- Wrap the tortillas around the veggies, kind of like a towel. Heat this on the comal until sides are browned.
- Now they’re ready to serve.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe. This is super easy and quick. It’s a nice snack in between and can also be a full meal. It’s always great to be able to heat up homemade food in a few minutes on those days when you’re busy. Not only does this recipe save you time, it also saves you money.
Having to buy food for several weeks or a month can stretch the budget a little. That’s why recipes like these help to keep the wallet a little thick. This veggie mix will last you for several days and, as I mentioned before, you can combine it with different types of bread too.
