Grilled Vegetable Wraps

Like a burrito only better

Having recently discovered the joys of Panera (a sandwich restaurant chain) I've been slightly inspired to make delicious grilled sandwiches. Thing is, the weather needs to be a little bit warmer. Just a little. For my vegetarian grilling class, I decided that Grilled Vegetable Wraps in the style of a panini were in order. Like the Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas, these wraps are stuffed to overflowing with delicious vegetables, different cheeses and super awesome Thai Chili Guacamole



Grilled Vegetable Wraps

Serves: 6       Total Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus,
    washed, bottoms removed, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 green zucchini, sliced
  • 1 yellow zucchini, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1/4 cup Thai Chili Guacamole
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 of a vegetable bouillon cube
  • 1/4 cup of butter, melted

Directions

Step 1
Preheat your grill to between 400°F and 450°F.
Step 2
Rinse the quinoa and then bring a pot with the water, quinoa, and bouillon cube to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the quinoa for 10 to 15 minutes, until cooked through.
Step 3
Toss the vegetables with 1 tbsp. of oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the veggies to lightly grill in the Napoleon Grill Wok or Stainless Steel Wok Topper until they're fork tender.
Step 4
Spread each tortilla with the guacamole. Add a layer of cheese followed by a heaping helping of quinoa. Finally add some of the grilled veggies and then maybe some more cheese. You can even add some homemade dressing before wrapping up like a burrito. You may have to fix it closed with a toothpick.
Step 5
Brush one side of the wrapped tortillas with butter and place them on the grill over direct heat. Brush the other side of the tortillas with butter. Grill for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the outside of the tortillas are toasty with nice grill marks and the cheese inside is melted.
Step 6
Serve these immediately with extra dressing, sour cream, or more guacamole for dipping.
These Grilled Vegetable Wraps were just stunning. There's so many variations that you could manage too, but I will save those for other blog recipes. Super simple, and quick, these Grilled Vegetable Wraps came out tasting like a restaurant panini, and will definitely be the envy of anyone eating a meataterian meal nearby.

Happy Grilling!
