These flavor-packed wraps are filled with sweet roasted vegetables and tangy pepita quinoa. Quinoa is already a complete protein, and adding beans makes this a high-protein and vegan meal. If you want to add some shredded cheese, they are delicious that way, too
Yield: Makes 4 wraps
8 ounces garnet yam or other sweet potato
1 small zucchini about 8 ounces
½ red bell pepper, about 4 ounces
1 small red jalapeno seeded and julienned
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded queso anejo or other cheese (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the sweet potato, zucchini, and bell pepper in ¼-inch-wide strips, then cut them into 2-inch lengths. Toss with the jalapeno, olive oil, ground chipotle, and salt in a 3-inch-deep roasting pan, and roast for 20 minutes. Stir the vegetables, then roast for 20 minutes more, until the zucchini is limp and browned and the sweet potatoes are tender.
Let the vegetables cool, place in a large bowl, and mix in the beans. If using cheese, add to the vegetable mixture. Divide the Mexican Quinoa among the tortillas, and then top with the vegetables, placing the fillings in a rectangular shape in the middle of each round. Fold the sides in and then roll the wraps. If making ahead, wrap each in foil, so that they can be reheated in the oven.
