I ate at our co-op two days in a row. Day 1, they had lentils and veggies wrap. Day 2, they had hummus and veggies wrap. Carrots, greens, and beets were in it. I was surprised that I liked it with the beets in it. The lentils had some kind of salad dressing, too. So have you had any good veggie wraps lately and if you have, what kind?

I haven't had an all veggie wrap. I would say they are really good though. I usually eat a grilled chicken wrap with lettuce, tomato, and cheese.

Grilled chicken seems to be very popular. One of our Price Choppers has an entire wrap section. Roast beef, grilled chicken, etc. Even there, I often get the cheese and veggie wrap. I'm not into meat sandwiches. I've gotten so I eat meat once a day.

Hi, Edge! I just finished one I made with hummus, a variety of lettuces, grape tomatoes, cucumbers and chives. With a little balsamic vinegar, it was yummie!!!

Sounds good, I wish I could still eat tomatoes. I found, when I could eat them, the smaller the tomato,the better the taste. We grew cherry, roma, and beefsteak one year. The next year, I saw the seeds for the grape ones, but by then we had used up a lot of nutrients in the soil. I haven't done compost since I haven't been able to buy much organic. That next year, I had to just change crops because we couldn't afford any amendments. My husband really was motivated to do tomatoes one year, but not so much the next. I don't think his health was as good that year. Seems like our health isn't as good when we have money problems. I think that year was drought anyway and we needed a new well drilled. I love lettuce, cukes, and chives. So that sounds like an excellent wrap to me. My hubbie would love it with the tomatoes for sure. Thanks and take care.

I often use whatever veggies would spoil if I didn't use them right away, and add a nice spicy salsa!

Yeah, I miss salsa. I need to find or make a low acid version.

Unfortunately the last one I ate was the KFC chicken wrap that my husband likes to buy..But the one you had sounds very tasty. Though matzos are a little different from wraps, I do over Passover eat a beet/horseradish/apple mixture wrapped up in a soft matzo, that is good. I know it sounds gross, but it isn't bad, once you get over the horseradish part..

I love horseradish and apples. Normally I'm not a big fan of beets, but these fresh beets of the co-op with other ingredients, I am starting to change my mind about that. So I don't think it sounds gross, I think it sounds very interesting. So it's another interesting idea that I think I'll try. Thanks and take care.

Actually I only started eating beets when I started celebrating Passover and my friend mixed horseradish and beets to lower the hotness of the horseradish. I have always had canned, never fresh, I should try that sometime..

Yeah, me too, even when we grew them, we canned them, so I never had them fresh.

Wraps do sound good. We are eating sandwichs. My grand daugheter makes a good wrap with all the vegetables she has in the frig. With Ranch or 1000 Island dressing. I like Catalina also. Alittle tuna or chicken chopped up with spinach and whatever else sounds good. Beets are good for the liver.

Those sound like good wraps with lots of neat ingredients. I'm going to have to be less lazy and more crative to make my own. Thanks for the great ideas. Take care.

I don't like hummus, because of the sesame in it.

So make it without it and put something you do like in it. We really would starve at each other's houses.
