Our local Quik Trip sells a wrap that I really love. They take a spinach tortilla and fill it with chicken salad that includes cranberries and nuts. Since I’m (mostly) a vegetarian, I wanted a cheap vegetarian recipe that I could substitute and I found it with this “mock” tuna salad made with garbanzos. It’s a variation from Dr. Neal Barnard although I’ve modified it so much that it’s vastly different.
Ingredients For My Delicious Vegetarian Recipe
* 1 can organic garbanzo beans
* 2 green onions
* Sweet relish
* Bolthouse dressing (more on that below)
* Rudi’s spinach tortillas
1. Drain and mash the garbanzos, leaving some chunks in the recipe.
2. Cut up the onions in small pieces and add to the beans.
3. Throw in some relish – Dr. Barnard says 1 Tablespoon but I just dump some in – nothing precise here at all.
4. Add some cranberries and almonds (which I broke into smaller pieces).
5. Add enough Bolthouse to make it all stick together.
6. Roll up in a tortilla with some organic lettuces.
7. Eat, eat, eat!
About the Bolthouse dressing: I LOVE this stuff! It’s very tasty and very low in calories and it doesn’t have any artificial ingredients. What can be better than that? Well, I guess it would be better if it cost less, but I’m willing to pay the price.
This time I made it with the Salsa Ranch which is my favorite of their dressings. But the first time I made it, I used Honey Mustard and I actually like that better. That’s what I plan to use in all future fixings.
Naturally, everybody doesn’t like the same food. But if you’re looking for cheap vegetarian recipes that you can ‘wrap’, you might want to give this mock tuna salad a try.
