We all tend to be creatures of habit at times. At least I know that’s true for me. When I find myself enjoying a certain food or meal, I notice that I start to enjoy that food or meal often – it can be almost comforting at times. I like no-brainer meals, to be honest. As much as I like to think about food all the time, there are times where I’d rather just go on auto-pilot.
This little throw together lunch falls into the category of “go to” meals for me. There’s nothing gourmet about it, nothing fancy, but to me it’s pretty perfect. It’s simple, and I make sure to always have all the ingredients available for me in the fridge (helps with auto-pilot mode). I’ve been enjoying it almost every weekday for the last few weeks. It’s become “ole reliable” when I can’t think too hard about what to make myself for lunch (I work from home during the day, so this could easily be dinner for those of you who don’t, please keep in mind).
Don’t shame me, but the veggie burger that I cook up is a frozen one, and I love it. I buy a big box of them at Costco and cook them up in my toaster oven until hot and a bit crisp. I’ve been wanting to try making my own homemade veggie burgers for a while now, and it’s a challenge I plan to take on very soon.
I’ll enjoy these until I do.
Veggie Burger Wrap
Recipe created in Aggie’s Kitchen
1 veggie burger – your favorite, right now mine is Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burger, but I also enjoy Morningstar Black Bean Burgers
1 whole wheat tortilla wrap – I love these from La Tortilla Factory
1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge – any flavor – or slice of cheese of your choice (optional of course)
green leaf or red leaf lettuce
Sriracha, hot sauce, mustard or ketchup – your choice and optional
Cook your veggie burger until crisp, according to directions. While veggie burger is cooking, lay out your tortilla and spread your cheese on it. Top with lettuce leaves, carrots and sprouts. Top with veggie burger and a dash of Sriracha or hot sauce.
Serve with fruit and enjoy.
