I’m a big fan of sandwich wraps because they are easy to make and you can cram lots of greens and other veggies into them. A white bean spread with lemon, garlic and dill adds delicious creaminess to this vegan Greek sandwich wrap recipe.
The white bean spread couldn’t be easier. You mix it in seconds with a food processor and it will stay fresh in the fridge for several days.
The recipe serves four but I usually assemble one wrap at a time over the course of a few days for quick lunches or a simple dinner. I’m kicking myself right now because I forgot to add the tomatoes when I made the wrap today – but that just goes to show you that you don’t necessarily need every single ingredient to make a tasty meal.
Vegan Greek Sandwich Wrap
White Bean Spread
- 2 cups navy beans (or 1 15.5 oz can low sodium beans, rinsed and drained)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1-2 Tbsp. fresh dill
- 1/2 lemon juiced
- 1 Tbsp. water (or less)
- 4 large wraps (whole wheat or gluten-free)
- 1 cup cucumber diced
- 1 cup red onion diced
- 16 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
- 14 oz quartered artichoke hearts packed in water – NOT marinated
- 4 Tbsp. kalamata olives sliced
- 2 cups baby spinach
White Bean Spread
Add navy beans, garlic, dill and lemon juice to food processor fitted with the S blade.
Begin to dribble the water through the chute as you turn on the processor. Add the water slowly. You may not need to use the full tablespoon to reach the desired consistency – or you may need to add just a bit more.
Process for approximately 30 seconds or until a creamy texture is achieved
Spread ¼ of white bean spread on a wrap
Spread 1/3 cup of diced cucumber, ¼ cup of diced onion, 8 tomato slices, ¼ of the artichokes, 1 tbs of olives over the bean spread
Add ½ cup of baby spinach
Fold side edges of wrap over the ingredients and then roll from the front edge closest to you.
Slice the wrap in half and enjoy!
Repeat steps with the remaining ingredients as needed
