Meatless Monday: Grilled Portabella Mushroom Wrap with Tomato Pesto

As always I find myself trying to figure out what to pack for lunch at 6am when all my sleep-deprived brain wants to do is go back to bed. So this quick meal is for all us moms who just want 10 more minutes!

 

 

The great thing about this little wrap is that not only is it filling but it is incredibly nutritious. Portabella mushrooms are a great source of protein, thiamin, vitamin B6 and folate. They are also a very good source of dietary fibre. The sweet peppers, because of their orange and yellow colours, are high in beta carotene and vitamin C. The whole grain wrap provides all the goodness of seeds and whole wheat (I like to keep wraps stocked in my pantry because they’re a really good base for any filling.) So it’s a fantastic, power-packed meal, even if you’re on the go!

 

It’s simple really.

Grill the mushrooms and sweet peppers in a pan.

 

 

Spread the pesto on the wraps. I like Waitrose Tomato Pesto but you can use any kind you like. Of course, you can always make your pesto too!

 

 

Then wrap it up and devour!
