We have for you a healthy recipe with fresh veggies and a load of flavour. This super tasty Lentil Tahini Wrap is the perfect vegan lunch or dinner option, and even a great on-the-go meal! It is quick, easy, healthy, and delicious!
I like to have versatile recipes which I can use for a bunch of different life scenarios. Because, you know, life sometimes gets crazy and we want to be prepared for whatever is thrown at us.
Well, this vegan wrap is one of those super handy recipes. I love that it has a decent amount of protein and is made with a bunch of fresh veggies. You have all your essentials wrapped in a tortilla. So you can either sit down at home and enjoy it or have it on-the-go when you barely have time to breathe.
When I need to fill a vegan lunchbox, this is one of my favourite things to throw in there. Since I can make them ahead of time, I don't have to rush in the morning to get lunches ready. I just take them out of the fridge and they are good to go. This lentil wrap won't get soggy and it holds really nicely.
Also, I needed a light meal that would keep us nourished. When I know I am having a busy day I don't want to eat things that make me feel sluggish or that I need to sit down for a bit while I digest my meal. This vegan wrap is nourishing and filling but light enough that you can keep going about your day without a problem.
We have a few different things in these wraps. It's all simple stuff but you can be certain that every ingredient adds flavour and nutrients to your meal. I also love having different textures in a dish so I made sure we have some of that as well.
This protein wrap is super easy to make. I sliced some carrots and red bell pepper, and I had some salad greens washed and dried. I've made them without the greens and they come out really nice too. But wherever I can sneak in some extra veggies, I do!
I cooked the lentils with cajun spice and cumin. This is the part of the process that takes the longest. Sometimes, I make a big batch of lentils, store them in an airtight container in the fridge and I use them throughout a few days. It saves me a ton of time and we all know how good and nourishing lentils are.
Last but not least, the tahini sauce! This simple sauce is what will seal the deal inside your lentil wrap. I mixed hummus, tahini, lime juice, and a dash of red pepper flakes. You can skip the pepper if you are making these for the kiddos or if you're not big on that spicy little kick.
Roll your wraps and you are ready to stuff your face with this delicious vegan meal!
