Easy Chickpea Shawarma Wraps

If you’ve been on the hunt for vegetarian recipes that include bold flavors, this chickpea shawarma is sure to be a winner (and you can make it in only 15 minutes!). Start by cooking chickpeas over medium heat and add an impressive array of spices (garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, salt, pepper, turmeric, cinnamon). Once the chickpeas are toasted after about ten minutes, set them aside while you prepare the rest of the wraps. A warm Carb Balance Sundried Tomato Basil Wrap is the perfect complement to the delicious spices you used earlier, so arrange kale down the center of one wrap and top with the chickpeas. A homemade tahini mixture along with fresh cucumbers and tomatoes will make this vegetarian meal a true celebration of flavors!

Low Carb Spinach and Feta Quesadilla

If you’re looking for a quick and easy vegetarian meal that also has depth of flavor, this is it. By sautéing mushrooms with butter until tender, you’ll build up a rich flavor that’s also packed with nutrients. Adding garlic, salt, and lemon to the mushrooms also helps enhance the mix of flavors in the dish. When your mushrooms are done cooking, add spinach and combine into the dish, then set aside. Prepare our delicious Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas by spreading pesto on one side, then spoon your mushroom/spinach/cheese mixture on top. Place another tortilla over the mix and brown on both sides until the cheese is melted inside. These healthy quesadillas are packed with flavor, so no one will ever guess that you made them in under 15 minutes!

Freezer Friendly Breakfast Burritos

Vegetarian breakfast doesn’t have to mean you get stuck in an oatmeal and cereal rut; break out the eggs and beans for something delicious and hearty to start your day! And bonus – these breakfast burritos can be easily frozen to grab for an even faster start to your morning. Start by scrambling eggs over medium heat and warming our Mission Organics® Flour Tortillas. When your eggs are done, spoon onto the tortillas and top with black beans, salsa, cheese – go wild! Other family members can add extra toppings to theirs to make this meal fit for your entire crew in under 20 minutes!

Mediterranean Quesadillas

How can you turn pre-made ingredients into a delicious and rich vegetarian meal? By putting everything into one of our warmed and crisped Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps. This Mediterranean take on a quesadilla is stunningly simple; just spread hummus on a tortilla, then top with fresh spinach, sliced red peppers, olives, feta cheese, and parsley. Warm in a skillet to get a quintessential quesadilla crisp, then serve! This recipe takes your typical cold plate of Mediterranean treats and turns it into a filling lunch or dinner, all in under 10 minutes!

Garden Fresh Burritos

The secret to these delicious and easy garden fresh burritos is the small cuts on all your vegetables; everything cooks faster if it’s sliced and diced thinly. Start by chopping half a sweet potato, some red onion, bell pepper, and avocado (or buy pre-cut for an even faster meal!). Boil the sweet potato in a saucepan until tender while you sauté the other vegetables in a non-stick skillet for four to five minutes. When everything is done, layer baby spinach with the cooked veggies on a warm Mission Organics® Flour Tortilla and top with cheese, avocado, and a bit of salt and pepper. These easy (and delicious) burritos are a great way to pack in the veggies without much work!
