Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner Wraps
 

Choosing what to make for Thanksgiving seems truly like a daunting task. Is it going to be good? is everyone going to like it? They all rely on you to make that special day awesome, and it can be a lot of pressure.
Personally, on days like Thanksgiving, I usually cook meals I’ve made before, that are easy to make and are a crowd-pleaser.

This is one of the easiest quickest meals you could ever make for Thanksgiving. I love cooking, but during a holiday maybe you just want to rest, spend quality time with your family and not worry about waking up early to spend hours in the kitchen and even more hours cleaning up afterward.

Sometimes one just needs to chill and not think about all of this. This wrap is the perfect recipe for that. It comes together in no time but the pay-back in flavor will not disappoint you!

Benefits of…

Sweet Potatoes

  • They are an amazing veggie, a great source of fiber, and they are also naturally packed with vitamin B5, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, and carotenoids due to their naturally orange color. Scientists have determined that sweet potatoes contain anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and anticancer properties.

Pecans

  • This delicious nut is rich in protein, healthy fats, and fiber that can help keep you energized and satisfied. They are a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which help lower blood pressure. Most of the fat found in pecans is a healthy type called monounsaturated fat.

Cranberry Sauce

  • Cranberry sauce offers the same Vitamin C nutrients that can mean fewer colds and flu this winter. A half-cup serving delivers about 4 percent of your daily Vitamin C needs, but every little bit helps! Believe it or not, cranberry sauce can help you look like a million bucks.

Ingredients

  • 4 wraps
  • 1 sweet potato cut into semi-circles
  • 1 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 2-3 handfuls of microgreens or sprouts
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 can chickpeas drained, rinsed
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tbsp sumac powder
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 430F/220C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Arrange sweet potato and carrot pieces on a sheet, trying to spread them out as much as possible. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on top and stick in the oven for 40 minutes. About halfway through, you want to flip sweet potato slices and give the carrots a gentle toss.
  • About 5 minutes before the end of the baking cycle, add the pecans onto the tray, allowing them to toast slightly.
  • Once your chickpeas are rinsed, transfer them into a mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, paprika, sumac and chives. Toss everything together to ensure that chickpeas are well coated. Roast on a line tray or cook in a dry non-stick pan for 10 minutes.
  • Finally, when all ingredients are ready, distribute sweet potatoes, carrots, chickpeas, greens and pecans among the wraps. Drizzle some cranberry sauce on top and carefully close your wraps. Serve immediately or save for next day’s lunch.

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

Compostable Parchment Paper
The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love.

Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.

Pomegranate Sweet Potato Salad 1
Vegan Pomegranate Quinoa Salad

 Vegan Pomegranate Quinoa Salad

Welcome back Mamas! Today I’m coming to you with a tasty pomegranate salad for Fall!

This Vegan Pomegranate Quinoa Salad is the a fantastic combination between a nourishing, filling, hearty fall meal and a light salad. It’s a perfectly balanced dish, the quinoa is high in protein and fibers, and adds heartiness to the dish.

The sweet potatoes and the amazing cashew dressing add creaminess and so much taste. Finally, the pomegranate, which is rich in antioxidants, adds that wonderful crunch and makes it so colorful and pretty!

  Pomegranate Sweet Potato Salad  
 

  This recipe is one of my favorite because all of the ingredients are seasonal, meaning they are much more tasteful during this time of the year.

As a matter of fact, by eating produce grown close to home, we can reduce our carbon emissions and reconnect with the land.

For instance it’s so easy to grow baby spinach, you can even do it in a pot!

Just make sure you plant them at the end of the summer, just before it gets cold, and harvest them when – well – they’re still babies! It’s been raining quite frequently lately, and I haven’t even watered them since I planted the seeds.

Benefits of…

Walnuts

  • Walnuts are amazing for adding good fats to your diet. They also have a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which are a great help against cardiovascular diseases. Studies have shown that eating walnuts can help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in particular, but also lower your cholesterol overall.

Pomegranate seeds

  • Pomegranate has anti-oxidant and anti-viral properties because is said to be a good source of vitamins, especially vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E, as well as folic acid. Wonderful to prevent colds and other viruses typical of the fall months.

Cashews

  • A part from being so tasty, cashews are low in sugar and rich in fiber, heart-healthy fats, and plant protein. They’re also a good source of copper, magnesium, and manganese — nutrients important for energy production, brain health, immunity, and bone health.

Keyword: beginner friendly, healthy recipes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 492kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 Sweet potatoes diced in cubes
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts crushed
  • 1/2 cup Pomegranate seeds add more as you wish!
  • 1/2 cup Quinoa Dry - Rinse before cooking
  • 1 cup Vegetable broth
  • 3 tbsp Fresh parsley minced
  • 4-8 handfuls Baby spinach

Dressing

  • 1 cup Cashews soaked overnight
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2-1 tbsp Maple syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C and line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes into small cubes. Season with just a bit of salt and pepper and bake for 25-30 minutes until fork tender and/or brown to your desired preference.
  • While the sweet potatoes cook, rinse the quinoa in a mesh strainer and add to a small saucepan with 1 cup vegetable broth. Bring the quinoa to a boil and then a light simmer.
  • Removing the seeds from the pomegranate: Begin by rolling the pomegranate on the countertop to make the seed removal much easier. Slice the pomegranate into 4 sections and peel the skin away while scooping the seeds into a small dish. The rolling of the pomegranate helps to release the seeds without too much hassle.
  • Mince the parsley and add all of the dressing ingredients into a small blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, taste test and adjust to your preference.
  • Once the quinoa and sweet potatoes are ready, let cool slightly and then toss gently with all of the ingredients. Drizzle the dressing over and serve.

In search of a High Speed Blender to make all your DIY recipe dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Blender: The Vitamix Explorian Blender
  • It took me 3 years to choose this blender haha. I’m not even joking. I was so afraid of the price. So, instead, I purchased two other blenders in those 3 years that, low and behold, BROKE. The plant based lifestyle will wreak havoc on most blenders so you must choose a high quality one with a WARRANTY. The Explorian is one of the most inexpensive vitamix options but it still works great. I use it multiple times a day, every single day, and all of the recipes are from this beauty! Check out deals around Black Friday – you can usually snag one of these for under 200USD. For my European followers: Get ready to pay MORE than North America. I’m not sure why, but vitamix in Europe is double the price (which is actually more than double because we pay in euros/pounds/etc).

Vitamix Blender
 

Blendtec Classic Fit Blender
  • I have never owned a Blendtec, but I did live with someone who had one and it was pretty amazing. Never understood why it didn’t come with a tamper (?) but it does work beautifully. I am pretty biased with my years of experience with the vitamix over the Blendtec, but the price point is fantastic and there are TONS of videos out there comparing the two.

Blendtec
 

Nutri Ninja
  • I had a Ninja blender for years and years before I found the plant based lifestyle (or it found me). Prior to going plant based, I loved to make smoothies on a daily basis (still do today!). However, my smoothies were much *kinder* to the blender than today. While having owned both, I could just (and never would) compare a Ninja to a Vitamix – the difference is staggering. However, if you are just looking to blend up some oats, make light smoothies, or create epic dressings? Then go ahead and choose this one!
