Curried Cauliflower Wraps

I’m always on the lookout for an easy, quick and delicious vegan recipe and this one caught my attention a couple months ago when I found it on Pinterest.  It only takes about 20-30 minutes start to finish.  The only thing that takes some time is roasting the cauliflower in the oven for 20 minutes, but that is pretty easy and definitely the first thing you should do.

There’s a lot of flavor with the lemon and oil dressing and the curry coating on the cauliflower.  I found some excellent pita wrap bread at Trader Joe’s that you can eat in the oven at the last 5 minutes of roasting.

Assembly is easy and prep is super simple.  They also made great leftovers for lunch the next day served cold. I’m definitely adding this to my frequent recipes list.

Butternut Squash Vegetable Wraps

On December 31, 2013, in Family, Recipes, by Chris Baccus



Pasadena is nuts on New Year’s Eve and I’m not just talking about the night.  All day long the city is taken over with preparations for the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl.  We decided for a second year to venture to the insanity next to the Rose Bowl where all of the Michigan State and Stanford fans had their RVs and giant tents were raised where people were finalizing the floats for New Year’s morning.

KidSpace has a fun family event called Noon Year’s Eve.  They do a balloon drop and have a live band playing kid’s music.  This year the band was Clint Perry & The Boo Hoo Crew.



The boys had a great time jumping and dancing along to the band.  There was even an inflatable baseball that circled the crowd. Oscar kept smacking it up in the air. Eventually the clock struck noon and the balloons filled the event.



While we were enjoying the event and running around that morning, I had some butternut squash cooking in the SousVide Supreme.  Sous Vide is a great way to cook vegetables slowly and have them ready whenever you get home. In this case, the butternut squash was okay if it was overcooked and a bit mushy since I was mashing it to place in a wrap.


Butternut Squash Vegetable Wraps
Serves 4

1/2 butternut squash, cut into bit-sized cubes
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 green onion
6 brown mushroom, cut into small chunks
Handful of watercress
4 wraps
salt and pepper to taste

Cook butternut squash in SousVide Supreme at 180 degrees for 3-4 hours. Remove when done cooking and then mash with fork add to a bowl and mix with heavy cream and salt and pepper to taste.

Spread squash into wrap.  Add mushrooms, green onion sprigs, and watercress and roll wrap. Cut into 1 inch pieces and serve with a side salad or rice.
