Holiday Leftovers Wrap

Stir 2 tablespoons of prepared salsa into ½ cup mashed butternut squash or sweet potato. Roll in a 10-inch whole grain tortilla with ¼ cup cooked wild rice, ¼ cup chopped cooked Brussels sprouts (or other greens), and 1 tablespoon dried cranberries (or cranberry sauce!).

Scrambled Tofu Burrito 

In a microwave-safe bowl, mash ¼ cup firm silken tofu with ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, and a pinch of ground turmeric. Microwave 2 minutes, then spread tofu mixture in a line along the bottom third of an 8-inch whole grain tortilla. Top with 2 tablespoons of prepared salsa and 2 tablespoons cooked or canned (rinsed and drained) black beans. 

Kimchi Breakfast Burrito

Mash ½ cup drained, firm tofu with 2 tablespoons chopped scallion, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, ¼ teaspoon grated fresh ginger, and a shake of garlic powder. Roll in a 10-inch whole grain tortilla with ½ cup broccoli slaw, 4 pear slices, 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts, and 1 tablespoon kimchi.

Lentil Breakfast Sausage Roll-Up

In a saucepan combine ¾ cup cooked lentils, ¼ cup water, 1 teaspoon rubbed fresh sage, ½ teaspoon dried marjoram, and a pinch crushed red pepper; bring to simmering and cook, covered, 10 minutes. Spoon lentil mixture along the bottom third of an 8-inch whole grain tortilla. Top with roasted squash or other roasted vegetables. 

Cauliflower Rancheros Burrito

Combine ¾ cup small cauliflower florets, ½ cup diced tomato, ¼ cup sliced onion, and 1 teaspoon chili powder in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Roll in an 8-inch whole grain tortilla with ¼ cup cooked brown rice and 3 tablespoons of prepared salsa.

Chunky Chickpea Wrap

Mash ½ cup cooked chickpeas with 1 tablespoon chopped scallion, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, and 1 teaspoon lime juice. Roll in a 10-inch whole grain tortilla with ¼ cup grated carrot, ¼ cup diced avocado, and 2 tablespoons of prepared salsa. 

Sweet Potato Berry Breakfast Wrap

In a small bowl stir together ½ cup mashed sweet potato, ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger, ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg, and a pinch ground cloves. Microwave 1 minute. Let cool slightly, then spread mixture on an 8-inch whole grain tortilla. Top with ½ cup mixed berries. 

Spinach and Mushroom Roll-Up

In a skillet combine 2 cups quartered button mushrooms, ¼ cup sliced onion, and 3 tablespoons water; cook, covered, over medium 10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Arrange ⅓ cup baby spinach leaves in the center of an 8-inch whole grain tortilla; top with 3 thin tomato slices and mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast. 

How to Roll Like a Pro

Do your wraps and burritos always seem to fall apart? Here are some tips for keeping things tidy. 

1. After softening and warming the tortilla in a dry skillet over medium heat, spread any smooth toppings (if using) over the entire tortilla, leaving a 1½-inch border.

2. Pile solid toppings on bottom half of tortilla, leaving a 2- to 3-inch fold-over flap area at the bottom.

3. Fold in tortilla sides and hold them in place with fingers.

4. Fold bottom flap up to secure folded-in sides.

5. Roll it up and enjoy!
