Green Vegetable Burritos

I'm not sure if these are strictly burritos or not, but whatever they're called, they make a nice quick and healthy snack or lunch. You can of course, vary the vegetables depending on what you have available.

Makes 4

  • 2 medium courgettes/zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 75g/3oz spinach, washed
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1-2 tsp mild chilli powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp pickled jalapeños chopped
  • 1 cup of grated hard cheese/vegan cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander/cilantro (optional)
  • 4 corn tortilla wraps
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan. 
Fry the courgette and pepper until softened and just starting to brown.
Add the garlic, herbs, jalapeños and chilli powder and stir well.
Throw in the spinach and coriander and allow to wilt for a minute or two.

Heat the tortillas until warm (in a pan, microwave or oven). 
Fill with the vegetable mixture and a sprinkle of cheese, fold and eat!

If you have more time, you could make your own 
flatbread wraps.

Jacqueline at Tinned Tomatoes is hosting a sandwich themed No Croutons Required this month, which is handy, as I wrote this post just before I found out the theme!

  1. Great Lisa! Thanks for adding it. It look very tempting!

  2. Burritos are one of my favourite things to eat - this looks perfect for the kids too!

    1. My kids aren't that keen on 'green' veg, so this was a great way to tempt them to eat some!


Thanks very much for your comment. I love hearing your opinions, so please rest assured that genuine comments and competition entries will be visible after approval. This may take 24-48 hours, depending on how hectic my work/home life is at the time!
