Vegan Curried Cauliflower Wrap with Hummus

Of all the dinner/lunch pairings I’m sharing this month, this cauliflower wrap is my favorite. I’ve mentioned before how I love the combination of curry and cauliflower and this pizza is the best (in my book). I roast extra cauliflower for the pizza and save it to make a wrap/stuffed pita for lunch the next day. Add a little hummus (or even chickpeas) for protein and you’ve got yourself a meal.

Recipe Notes

Tips and Tricks: if using a curry powder that has salt, omit this salt.

Ditch the bread and add extra greens to make a salad. The curried cauliflower is great when paired with a lemon vinaigrette.

variations

What’s great about this recipe is that if you keep the curried cauliflower, everything else can be swapped out to meet your needs. Also, if you’re in the market to make your own curry powder, I really love this recipe. Or, I keep a bottle of this curry powder on hand for those times I don’t feel like blending my own.

The Wrap: I love stuffed pita or a hearty whole-grain wrap but if you’re looking to keep this gluten-free, using lettuce is a good alternative (or try your hand at a grain-free wrap or buy gluten-free tortillas).

The Greens: I really love the bite of arugula which is pictured in the recipe. However, any green will work: spinach, lettuce, or kale. Or, try a mix (one of my favorite things to do is spinach, kale, and a bit of lettuce!)

Hummus: I try to always have hummus on hand for wraps like these but occasionally I don’t and I’m pinched for time. Chickpeas are a nice addition and sometimes I’ll roast them along with the cauliflower to provide a bit of crunch.
