Black Bean Veggie Wrap makes brown bagging fun!

253 Flares 253 Flares ×

So now that my oldest has officially gone meat free, and is living as a vegetarian, I’m finding meatless lunches are a little bit (not tons) more challenging to pack.  The girl who loved ham and cheese won’t eat the ham anymore and I’m left trying to make sure she’s getting her protein in.  She REALLY loves the Black Bean Burger from MorningStar Farms and I was thinking today that I should do something fun with those. So, here you go.  A meatless wrap that’s full of flavor and protein and easy to bring for lunch! (We love the Thermos Funtainers- they really truly keep foods quite warm for several hours)  Here’s the black bean veggie wrap recipe I came up with for brown bagging days

spicy black bean veggie wrap

Ingredients:

Tortilla wrap (we use taco sized)- for my husband, I’d probably use a larger tortilla)

Morningstar Farms Black Bean Burger(s)

Lettuce

Shredded carrots, diced cucumber, sliced pepper (any veggies you want)

Cheese (we did 1T of shredded cheddar)

1T Ranch dressing (if desired- we use a light version)

black bean veggie wrap recipe

Directions:

Prepare burger as instructed.  (While I was waiting on burger to cook, I warmed the Funtainer with hot water inside of it for 5 minutes)

When burger is cooked, slice into thin strips and spread strips atop wrap.

Add lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, any veggies you’d like ( we don’t do the tomato, she won’t eat them)

Add cheese (shredded or slices- preference rules here!)

Drizzle a little bit of Ranch dressing on top

Fold one end of your wrap up over your food Starting at one side of the tortilla, carefully roll into a nice, tight wrap.

Slice in half and tuck into container to keep warm until lunch.  Or, plate and enjoy!

Serve with fresh fruit and extra veggies for a great “brown bag” lunch

  • My daughter has gone hard core vegan on me. I have so much trouble figuring out what to pack her for lunch. Thanks for the tip.

  • Those sound good! I remember that I went vegetarian for a year or so when I was in high school. Turned out to be a phase – I like bacon too much to be a vegetarian!

  • We always get the Morningstar Farms Tomato & Basil burgers. We have them on buns with pizza sauce. I’ve never tried the black bean ones – let alone adding them to a wrap!
