Preparing more plant-based meals can be time intensive. There’s usually quite a bit of prepping and cooking which can sometimes discourage you from trying a recipe. However, one of my favorite things to address this is to find recipes that allow for overlapping ingredients/components. Take this mediterranean wrap for example. The lentil bites can be used in these wraps, on top of pasta, or smothered in an easy cream sauce. Make an extra large batch and use these lentil bites for multiple meals!
Mediterranean Wraps with Lentil Bites
Author: Erin Alderson
Serves: 2 wraps
- 1 cup brown or green lentils, cooked
- 1/2 cup minced onion
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 2 Multigrain Flatout wraps
- 1 1/2 cups loosely packed spinach
- 1/2 medium cucumber
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 cup olives
- 1 tablespoon minced chives
- 1 to 2 ounces crumbled feta
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- In a food processor, add all ingredients for lentil bites. Pulse to combine. Mixture should be well blended and moist but retain a coarse texture.
- With the lentil mixture, form 12 patties, roughly 2 tablespoons of mixture per patty. Place patties on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Bake 15 minutes at 425°F. Flip patties and bake 5 minutes more. Let cool slightly before assembling wraps.
- While patties are baking, slice cucumber into thin half moons. Cut cherry tomatoes and olives in half.
- To assemble, lay wrap out on a flat surface. Place half the spinach onto the wrap. Layer cucumber, tomato and olives. Place 2 patties on top of vegetables. Sprinkle with chives and feta. Roll, tucking in the sides as you go. Repeat with remaining wrap. Cut each wrap in half to serve.
Don’t have a food processor? Stir together the ingredients for the lentil bites. Then use a potato masher to combine.
Stock up: get the pantry ingredients you will need: lentils, pecans
Like with most wraps, you can change the type and amount of toppings. The lentil bites really make this mediterranean wrap but a few additions/swaps you could use include:
Spreads: Before placing spinach on the mediterranean wrap, add a spread of hummus, harissa or baba ghanoush.
Greens: I often use spinach in wraps, but any leaf lettuce or kale would be fine.
Vegan: Leave out the feta to keep it vegan.
