Hi everyone, Happy Tuesday! I know I haven’t been around since last week, but I have a recipe today that will make up for it. Things have been a little crazy around here – I just got back from vacation, I’m in the middle of another move, and I’m trying to keep on top of work and nutrition school! Plus, on top of everything else, my roommate got into a terrible car accident the other night…. some guy flew through a stop sign and hit her on the driver’s side door. By the grace of God, she’s okay – a few inches different and she could have been killed. Her face is a little bruised, but she can walk around and move just fine. It’s really a miracle that nothing worse happened. I’m so glad she’s alright!!
But this really helps put things into perspective. We all have our problems – with money, with relationships, anything – but as long as there’s life, there’s hope. Life is a gift. I didn’t mean for this to turn into one of those “make the most of every moment” posts, but it’s so true – you never know if your candle will flutter out. I truly believe that life is too fragile to stay angry, stay worried, or stay frustrated. Tell your loved ones how much you care about them while you can. Take every opportunity to be kind, loving, and caring. Life’s too short for anything else!
Today’s recipe is something straight out of my own meal rotation – the vegan wrap. I love salads and pasta, but there’s something about wraps that I will always love. Potatoes make up the perfect filling, roasted with a touch of olive oil and spices. The flavors I used for these wraps include guacamole and barbecue sauce, but you could try any spreads and sauces you like – try hummus and hot sauce, or baba ganoush and your favorite salad dressing. The possibilities are endless!
My Favorite Vegan Wrap
- 4 Cups Chopped Red Potatoes
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
- 1/2 Tsp Chili Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Coriander
- 1/4 Tsp Cumin
- Pinch of Cayenne optional
- Tortillas of your choice
- Guacamole homemade or store-bought
- Your favorite vegan BBQ sauce
- Greens or sprouts
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Prep the potatoes - wash and dry them, then chop into square-like pieces. The final yield should be four cups, but how many potatoes you use greatly depends on how large your potatoes are. In my case I used about 5 red potatoes.
- In a bowl, mix potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and spices. Mix well until potatoes are evenly covered.
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (don't use tin foil - the potatoes will stick) bake potatoes for 30-40 minutes, stirring halfway.
- For extra crispiness, feel free to broil the potatoes for 2-3 minutes, if desired.
Putting It All Together
- Then, assemble your wraps. You should have enough potatoes for about four wraps (depending on how much you use.
- Spread a layer of guacamole and barbecue sauce on the tortilla (I used spinach and herb tortillas). Then, add a layer of greens and scallions. Finally, add on the potatoes and wrap it up.
- Cut in half or serve whole, whatever you like.

I’m so glad your roommate is alright. How scary! It really does make you appreciate a life a little more when you see how close it can be snatched away.
SarahMarch 7, 2017 at 11:01 am
Thank you so much Nicole! I’m so glad she’s okay :)
SaraMarch 7, 2017 at 1:52 pm
SO happy to hear your friend is okay, I’m sure that was a horribly scary/stressful experience! You’re so right – even though it sounds cliche it’s important to remind ourselves of the whole, enjoy the moment and make it all count, idea! This wrap looks seriously dreamy, though, and I love the idea of putting potatoes in a wrap! Looks delicious :)
SarahMarch 7, 2017 at 1:56 pm
Thank you so much for your note, Sara! I’m so glad she’s okay too :)

Sending lots of healing vibes to your roomie! That sounds like such a terrifying ordeal, I can’t even imagine. xox
SarahMarch 7, 2017 at 9:24 pm
Thanks so much Sophie!! <3
AnnaMarch 8, 2017 at 4:23 am
So true Sarah! We need to appreciate the gift of live every day, as you never know who will still be around tomorrow… I’ve lost my brother to a terrible car accident 3 years ago, and I’m still learning how to deal with it.
I’ve learned to be grateful for little things and moments, and to live life to the full, without any regrets and grudges, because it’s really too short to waste it for being angry or upset.
Your wrap looks like the bomb, I must try this! Pinning for sure! X
SarahMarch 8, 2017 at 10:06 am
I’m so sorry to hear that Anna :( I don’t even know what to say. So many people take driving for granted – that they can drive through roads safely, when it’s really a privilege and not a right.

Your poor roommate! I’m glad she’s OK–thanks for the reminder about the important things in life. This wrap looks delicious–I love anything with roasted potatoes :).

Thanks so much for your note, Kelsie!! I’m so glad she’s okay too :)

You have SO much going on. I’m so happy your roomie is okay. What a mess… and now dealing with the aftermath – taking care of herself, insurance, transportation and fixing her car. Wishing her well… and you too! Indeed, make each moment count, although I tend to take that too literally and get overwhelmed with trying to fit too much in. But, breathing deep is also making each moment count (it took me a long time to convince myself of this). This wrap is fabulous, Sarah! Simple, delicious, fast! Just what I need when I’m running around like mad. Those potatoes can roast while I’m working away… love that tangy BBQ sauce! I’m in! :D
SarahMarch 17, 2017 at 3:19 pm
Thanks so much for your well wishes, Traci <3 <3 I really appreciate it. A lot HAS been going on, and it's been a little overwhelming dealing with it all. But that's life, and taking a deep breath every once in a while certainly helps ;)
