I’ve been completely obsessed with the combination of roast eggplant, mushrooms, and asparagus lately. I’ve made it a few times over the past few weeks. On flatbread? Awesome. Tossed in pasta? Perfect for lunch. This time I stuffed them into wraps along with quinoa and a delicious (and dairy free!) creamy rosemary spread. If you’re looking for a vegan option to add to your Fourth of July spread (or any other casual gathering… or just a weeknight dinner…) these roast vegetable wraps have you covered! Those vegetables are gorgeous, aren’t they? Let’s talk about the rosemary spread though. It’s sort of like hummus meets Mexican bean dip… on an Italian adventure. I highly recommend making a double batch, because you’ll definitely find plenty of ways to use it up. It would be great on a turkey burger or even with some grilled chicken. You can also eat it like dip with pita chips or raw vegetables – bell pepper strips are my favorite. It’s also super simple to make. Just throw some cannellini beans, garlic, rosemary, and lemon juice into your food processor or blender and process it until it’s smooth. Then, stir in some GO Veggie! dairy free cream cheese to make it extra-rich. I’ve kept a tub of their cream cheese in my fridge ever since discovering it last winter when I used it in my Cajun Stuffed Spaghetti Squash. I was excited to learn that in addition to being dairy and lactose free, it also has four times more calcium and less fat than regular cream cheese. That’s pretty impressive! Of course it tastes great, too (I wouldn’t use it if it didn’t.)
I created this recipe for my client, GO Veggie! I first discovered GO Veggie! cream cheese last winter. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to try some of the other products in their line (I used their “parmesan” in the garlic scape pesto I posted the other day) and I’ve been pretty impressed. I’m thrilled to be creating a few more recipes for them this summer and fall! Thanks for supporting the brands that keep me inspired in the kitchen.
