Roasted Asparagus Feta Wrap

The only challenging part I find about being a vegetarian is that I often run out of sandwich ideas I can make to quickly pack for my lunch.  I do a lot of hummus and bean dips, obvious from my numerous bean puree-related posts.  But sometimes a girl can only eat so much hummus.  So that leaves me wtih…PB&J? Eh, maybe occasionally, but I ate too many of those in grade school to make them a staple in my life again.

Since I can’t rely on lunch meats, (and really, why would I want to…I always found the stuff slimy and gross even during the periods where I did consume meat), I’m left looking for inventive lunch alternatives.  Which can be quite fun.  The one pictured above turned out to be a pleasant surprise.  Who knew asparagus could taste so good in a wrap?

Paired with a seasonal crunch from the radishes and a soft punch of flavor from the feta, asparagus does quite well in a sandwich wrap.  Roast the asparagus the night before for a quick wrap up the next morning.

And stay tuned for my next post, which will feature another one of my vegetarian sandwich favorites.

    Sounds wonderful!! I would definitely make this at home, and I know Nick would love it too. He’s been into the vegetarian meals lately 🙂 BTW, stop by Newly Wed, Newly Veg’s blog and check out her cucumber and salmon sandwich. Wait….do you eat salmon?? Either way, you could do it without the salmon too, and maybe add some cheese, but you might like the recipe!
