Broccolicious Wraps


Last night, my friend Alejandra came over for dinner. Since she was coming straight from work, I wanted to feed her – besides just having tea! What’s more fun than that? Alejandra even offered to help me in the kitchen, so I put her in charge of chopping the bell pepper. Earlier, I had come across a few new recipes from PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) online – that they had sent out in conjunction with an ad campaign to “Drop the Dog” – meaning give up processed meat and hot dogs because they are linked to colorectal cancer. There are four recipes attached to the link that I’ll post at the end. I had bought ingredients for two of them, but decided to try out the Broccoli Burritos first. It should be noted that I didn’t have tahini on hand, so instead I substituted with Earth Balance’s Mindful Mayo (it’s vegan) and it worked just great! Here are the broccolicious Wraps!


Broccoli Burritos

Steam the broccoli. Use a food processor for the roasted red peppers, garbanzo beans and lemon juice. I used Rudi’s Gluten Free Spinach Tortillas. Do heat the tortilla on a pan – you do not need to add oil or anything else! Just heat it up! Then take off the pan and add the goodies and simply roll it up! (*Recipe at the end!)

These were SO delicious! I ate two and Alejandra ate three! We also added salsa on top…and we had some red wine! YUM! Try these out and please let us know what you thought of them! I know that I’ll definitely be making these again soon! Here’s the link to PCRM’s “Drop The Dog” – look to the right and you will see the colorful Recipe Cards in PDF – that’s where the recipe is located! Enjoy!
