Description

With so much green going on, this just has to be healthy, right? Well, good news. It is. (And my husband even likes it!). I love this meatless Monday option. With the sauces whipped up in advance, it’s the perfect weeknight meal.

The leftover value on this is high: both sauces are divine on a simple roast chicken or used as dip for crudite.


Ingredients

For the Wrap:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, about 4 cups, cut into florets
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 TB honey
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas, low-point lavash, naan, or pita 
  • 2 Persian cucumbers,* sliced on the diagonal (because, pretty)
  • Organic Girl protein greens (or greens of your choice), avocado, chopped cilantro for garnish
  • Fierce Green Sauce and tzatziki for drizzling or dipping or eating by the spoonful (recipes below)

For the Fierce Green Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste 

For the Easy Tzaziki:

  • 1 Persian cucumbers, peeled and grated on a cheese grater*
  • 1 cup plain, fat-free Greek yogurt (I use Chobani)
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

For the wraps

Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix up the cauliflower, oil, paprika, cumin, garlic, salt, pepper, and honey in a sheet pan. Use your hands until all the amazing flavors are spread around.Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, tossing once or twice, until cauliflower is getting a little color and beginning to caramelize. After you take it out of the oven, make sure to drench it in lemon juice from one lemon. Make it rain.

While it’s sizzling in the oven, make the sauces.

For the Fierce Green Sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. I used a little water to get it to a properly saucy consistency.

To Assemble:

For assembly, just add all the toppings like you would at a taco bar. You can’t go overboard here. It’s all just so good. Go wild with the sauces. You have my permission!

Notes

*You can use any cucumber you like. Persians are cute, small and mild. If you use a traditional English cucumber, make sure to only use about half.
