EASY VEGETARIAN ROLL-UP
This is a nice easy dish to take to a party or have at a family gathering. To make this recipe vegan, substitute hummus for the cream cheese, or, to go in the other
direction, add a thin layer of smoked ham or smoked salmon after the cheese.
4 whole wheat flour Tortillas 25cm ( 10” ) substitute another
flavour if you wish
1 tub 227g herb and garlic Cream Cheese or your choice
2 c baby Spinach loose rough chopped
½ c red Pepper
½ c red Onion or green Onion or Chives minced fine
½ c Celery julienned
½ c Carrot julienned
¼ c fresh Parsley chopped fine
coarse black Pepper
all firm veggies should be julienned ( except the onions ) cut in very thin
strips – like matchsticks or thinner
spread a thin layer of cheese over the whole surface of the tortilla then add the spinach
lay all the julienned toppings in the same direction not too much on each one or they won’t roll
add the chopped onion spread all over the surface of the tortilla add a grind or two of pepper no salt
roll tightly carefully so as not to tear the tortilla wrap tightly in plastic wrap
and refrigerate until ready to serve a couple of hours is best
unwrap carefully and slice into 1.25cm ( ½” ) portions.
Don’t make the roll-ups too far ahead. They will get soggy after a few hours. Keep them cooled. RJH.
