Quick Avocado Veggie Rollups with Hummus

 Here’s a super easy, fun vegetarian and vegan lunch idea. They go great with soup or have them as a snack.  They’re great for using up some veggies, so just use what you have on hand.  I just wish I had filled mine a bit more so next time I’ll add some more veggies.
Ingredients
Tortilla
Hummus
Whole Romaine Lettuce Leaves
Sliced Avocado
Matchstick Carrots
Thinly Sliced Red Onion
Method

Slightly warm your tortilla in the microwave.

Spread a layer of hummus over the entire tortilla.  Top with one layer of romaine lettuce, then top with remaining ingredients.  Roll up tightly then slice into sushi size pieces.

Makes 4 large burgers or 6 small

Ingredients

1/2 small onion, chopped

1-2 cloves garlic

1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp chipotle powder or cayenne (optional)

1/3 cup pepitas

2 tsp vegetable oil

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup cooked brown rice

Salt and pepper to taste

Flour for dusting

Oil or cooking spray

Method

Add onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, and pepitas to a food processor.  Pulse several times until it all comes together.  Add remaining ingredients and pulse again until it comes together.  Do not over blend or the mixture can become too wet.  Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate 20-30 minutes to chill.  Once chilled it will be easier to handle.

Shape into 4 patties.  Lightly dust both sides of each patty in flour.

Heat lightly oiled skillet over medium heat.  Once hot, add burgers and cook a few minutes on each side until browned and heat through.
