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!

Venezuelan Arepas

If there's something Carlos and I grew up on it's these little pieces of Venezuelan street food heaven called arepas. These vegan arepas are gluten free by default, they can be served for a yummy vegan breakfast or even as a vegan main dish for lunch or dinner. If you haven't tried these before, you'll fall in love instantly, this quick vegan recipe is a regular at our house for sure.

Every family back home has their own way of eating and serving these, and although most of the traditional fillings are not vegan friendly, all you need in my opinion for a top notch vegan arepa is some ripe avocado, tomatoes and some vegan cheese shreds. In fact plain avocado is a perfect filling in and of itself!

Want more ideas for fillings? The arepa is always a savory dish, so here are some ideas:

The Ultimate Guide to Vegan Sandwiches

I pretty much always have an idea of what to make for lunch and dinner on any given day. All it takes is a glance at my fridge and the ingredients I have and I immediately feel inspired to create something. There's one exception though. One little guy I always forget about, which also happens to be one of the most fun, versatile and delicious things you can eat: the sandwich.

It's so strange that I often think about these bad boys last since I grew up on sandwiches. On our trips to the beach while I was growing up, my mom would pack tuna fish sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches (my personal favorite), ham and cheese, all pretty basic and standard. When it came to sandwiches though, my mother was not the queen.

She had a rival.
