Crunchy Lentil Dip Wraps

A couple of weeks ago we talked about easy meal ideas you could whip up when you’re tired of eating beans. Legumes are such an important pillar of eating a vegan diet, but sometimes we’re craving a little variety when it comes to cooking them. Since in my opinion there is nothing as satisfying and fun as handheld food, I thought today I’d take you along the process of cooking lentils from scratch all the way to flavoring them and transforming them into the most delicious dip that you could eat with veggies, or turn into these scrumptious crunchy veggie wraps.

I also love any recipe you can batch cook during the weekend and just assemble throughout the week. These wraps are perfect for exactly that reason, as you can quickly make the dip on Saturday or Sunday, keep lots of crunchy vegetables and avocado on hand, heat up some tortillas on busy weekdays and create the most delicious wraps in just minutes.

This recipe is also filled with yummy umami in the form of that roasted garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, and it’s so tasty and satisfying. I hope you love it!

Easy Meal ideas for When You're Tired of Eating Beans

When I had my first veggie bowl as a vegan I remember thinking “I could eat like this forever, I could never grow tired of eating beans”. I was eating one of my go-to’s, a bowl with brown rice (sometimes millet or quinoa), black beans sautéed with peppers, onions, paprika and tomatoes, pico de gallo salsa and a dollop of guacamole to top everything up. This is still a regular meal for lunch at our house, and I love black beans dearly, but the idea that I could eat beans at every single meal forever and always and never grow tired of them, well, that was an apple of a different color.

Legumes are such an important staple in vegan meals and a fantastic protein source when eating enough of them. For most of us that means 3 servings per day, or a serving at every meal as I like to say. As we get older, or when we’re going through specific life stages, 4 is a great number to strive for. Legumes doesn’t mean beans alone though, peanut butter, soy milk, tofu, tempeh, veggie meats and many other meals made with legumes count, which means you don’t have to have a bean burrito for breakfast, unless you love the idea of course!
