Today is my moms birthday, so happy birthday mom! 🙂
me & mumma 🙂
We had a family party at our house, which was fun and as always filled with lots of fun, laughs, and food!
But lately, I was thinking about how I wanted to contribute something to the party — food wise. Most people always bring one or two dishes to a party, and I wanted to finally make something on my own as well. So I first had to think what the hell am I going to make?
I knew right away that I wanted to make some kind of healthy dessert, and I was torn between a recipe from Katie
, and one from Julie
. I ultimately chose to make Julie’s Peanut Butter Protein Bars
. Which are….unbelievable. I’ve made them before, and I am a huge fan so I decided to make them again! Plus, I’ve already had my eye on a few of Katie’s recipes that I can’t wait to try in the future!
But, a dessert wasn’t all I wanted to contribute.. So I tried being creative.
First, I knew it was going to be vegetarian. Next, I was thinking some kind of sandwich. So, I went to the store and got some Smart Veggie Bacon, Veggie Mozzarrella cheese, a red onion, spinach, eggs, and whole wheat tortillas. Then I threw it all together!
But, I did a little research and I wanted some kind of dressing to go with it and here’s what it all came up to be…
Veggie Roll Ups
5 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 cup lite sour cream
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. chopped parsley
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic, minced
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
veggie mozzarella cheese(as much as desired)
1 package whole wheat tortillas
1 package smart veggie bacon
1/2 cup red onion thinly sliced
4 hard cooked eggs, sliced
For dressing, mix the first 8 ingredients listed (in bold). It will appear light pink, then set aside.
Divide dry ingredients among tortillas. (I added spinach first, followed by onion, bacon, cheese, then egg).
Drizzle the dressing onto each tortilla before wrapping up
Next, I wrapped up the tortilla and put 2 toothpicks in the sandwich, then cut it in half, for mini veggie roll ups!
I was so excited these were a huge hit! 🙂
