Vegetarian Tomato Wrap

I always cook this on weekends so this time just thought I would share how I make it in pictures - since I’m not very good with words. 

Let’s start off with the ingredients.

image

Mix the basil and parsley in a small bowl. Do the same thing for chopped onion and garlic. 

image

These are the perfect cherry tomatoes. I usually cut them in halves.

image

Spices and herbs are lifesavers. Note: don’t hesitate on cumin seeds. 

image

image

Don’t usually like anything canned but beans take forever to cook. And I prefer using diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. 

image

Homemade guacamole - basically crushed avocados.  One avocado is usually enough for four wraps.

Mozzarella goodness.

And of course, the wraps. I prefer the wholemeal kind but we’ve had this sitting on the fridge so decided to use it anyway.

I do not use oil when I cook at all. And if you’re making these I suggest you don’t use oil too because (a.) it will make your wrap oily when you put it together and (b.) the flavours of the ingredients come out more.

So, I start off with the onions, garlic, herbs and spices. Again, don’t hesitate on cumin. And basil. Of course. Once the onion and garlic are soft and a bit transparent, I put in the cherry tomato halves and cook it in water until its soft.

The rest is pretty easy. I put the kidney beans and the diced tomatoes. Cook it until the beans are soft and the whole thing is less watery. Little bit of water is fine. The final sauce should look dark orange and make sure all the tomatoes are soft - as if they are chunky paste.

Now it gets exciting. Toast the wraps and immediately put the sauce (while it’s hot) on one side of the wrap and guacamole on the other. Make sure the sauce is hot so that the mozzarella will melt on top of it. On top of the cheese put some light sour cream.

Just fold the toasted wrap in half and start eating.

If you feel like being civil, use a fork and a knife because it can get a bit messy. But we love eating this with our hands. Enjoy!

Currently reading Carl sagan’s Pale Blue Dot when I stumbled upon this beautiful video animation of his words Truthful and chilling.

I absolutely love it when designers use (well) design to communicate important things like science.

Love this song. Love the music video. And, of course, love Sophia Bush. 

Beautifully crafted ad by Nike. Great campaign too.
