Play With Your Food: Roll-Ups, Wraps & Fold-Overs

Brainstorm edible things that fold, wrap or roll. Put other edibles on it. Voila — roll-ups, wraps and fold-overs!

You can also habitually unroll/unwrap/unfold all foods that were already prepared this way for you — just as MaiTai prefers, suspicious as he is about what I may have stuffed inside. Open-faced burritos, anyone?

Backstory on this series:

Behold, some vegetarian/vegan lunches and dinners we made at home and enjoyed with our mouths and bellies over the past few years. This is part of a short series that will catch up on past home-cooked dining experiences before I start posting current meals.

Mostly organic, mostly vegan*, mostly on the same plates.

Sorry, no recipes.** I didn’t much like rules back in these largely spontaneous and experimental cooking days shared here.

We made these meals with what was in the pantry and fridge, a few minutes of forethought, some fire, a feeling of goodwill toward the animal kingdom, and the inspiration of our appetites.

*Some of these were made when we were still vegetarian and not fully vegan. I included only ones I recall to have been vegan, but I don’t have a time machine so can’t swear on anyone’s grave about it.

**I’ll be sure to include ingredients and recipes with future creations, though.

Part 3: Roll-Ups, Wraps + Fold-Overs

Seitan + mushrooms + shredded carrots + cream cheeze + balsamic glaze drizzle on toasted naan.

First attempt at stuffed grape leaves. They’re surprisingly difficult to roll up tightly. I guess one shouldn’t attempt to pack them like burritos.

“EnchiLate-Night.” A dollop of hummus does a body good.
