Veggie Burger Wraps

by Aggies Kitchen on March 20, 2012



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
shredded carrots
alfafa sprouts
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.

Angela (oh she glows) has a great chickpea burger! The wrap looks great to me! My go tos are salad or stir fry…or breakfast foods!

This is my kind of wrap… especially for lunch on a warm spring day (like what we’re experiencing today).

This looks amazing, I love the Dr. Praeger’s burgers too. Lately I have been loving the Trader Joe’s variety but also like the Morning Star Farms ones. I’ll eat any veggie burger, obviously. This sounds so good, Aggie! Thanks for the link too! :)

I love this! It looks so much more healthy than putting it on a hearty bun. I love that the burger is the star of this recipe! :D

Great minds think alike!! I love the ol’ veggie burger wrap. I, too, use frozen patties. I’ve yet to make that one that I like better! This looks great!! Miss you girl!

Gotta say, frozen veg burgers are one of my go-to lunch items too! Convenient and travel well.. I pop them on top of a couple handfuls of spinach and zap in the mic at work. I’ve made these veggie burgers from Eat, Live, Run. They are amazing! http://www.eatliverun.com/boyfriend-approved-spicy-black-bean-burgers/
