Meatless Monday: Grilled Veggie and Goat Cheese Wraps
I promised you a grilled recipe today, didn’t I? Now, I know that it’s easy to think “burger” when you think “grill.” But that doesn’t mean burgers are the only food worthy of your grill on Memorial Day.
How about adding some veggies? Then grab some goat cheese, olives and tortillas and call it dinner, minus the meat. It’s just as simple, but healthier. And it’ll still go with all the accompaniments one brings to a barbecue — salads, chips, dips, etc.
Grilled Veggie and Goat Cheese Wraps
1/2 pound button mushrooms, grilled
1 red bell pepper, cut in pieces and grilled
1/2 large eggplant, cut in chunks and grilled
1 bunch green onions, grilled
16 mixed olives, pitted (optional)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 whole wheat tortillas
4 large lettuce leaves
Roughly chop mushrooms, peppers, eggplant, green onions and olives and then toss in a large bowl with lemon juice, goat cheese, salt and pepper. Line tortillas with lettuce and then spoon vegetable-goat cheese mixture on top. Wrap up snugly, tucking in the ends burrito-style and serve.
