Sunshine Wraps for Lunch!

Today is an absolutely gorgeous day - certainly not typical for January in our area. Tomorrow's forecast is cloudy and at least twenty degrees cooler so we had to make the most of today.  The sun is shining, the breeze is perfect and it made a great day for lunch on the porch.

This was our gluten free lunch.  Quick to make, easy and healthy. We love these wraps made with Sunshine Burgers. They are my favorite go to fast food.  I don't buy many processed or packaged items but these are gluten free, soy free, casein free, vegan and delicious.  The Southwestern is our favorite.  (For Feingold friends I am sure the original flavor is approved but you'll have to check your foodlist on the others).  Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas make fabulous and sturdy wraps. We added a green salad and a tall glass of cold Kombucha and for just a few minutes it felt like summer.

Sunshine Burger Wraps
(Makes six large wraps)

2 Boxes Sunshine Burgers - your choice of flavors (3 per pkg.)
1 pkg.    Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas
1            Red Bell Pepper, sliced into matchsticks
2            Carrots, grated
1            Cucumber, sliced into matchsticks
1/8         Red Onion, sliced paper thin
1 Cup    Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
1 Cup    Guacamole

Heat the Sunshine Burgers according to package directions.

Have your veggies ready (and be creative with your own favorites), assembly goes quickly.

I use a  large cast iron skillet and heat each tortilla for about a minute on each side to soften.

Plate the warm, softened tortilla and crumble a Sunshine Burger down the center.  Layer on all the toppings and roll it up keeping the ends on the bottom, cut in half and serve.

Time to get back outside and play!

Yum! Looks like you're just getting started on this blogging journey. Welcome to the world of crazy gluten-free bloggers! (Sunshine burgers are delicious, aren't they. And, they're a local (to me) company. Yay!)

These look so delicious!!

I bought these burgers for Brian and he loves them! Thank you for introducing them to us.

Hi Terri - I'm so glad Brian loves them, too! How does he like to have them?

Terri said...

He doesn't like wraps so he eats them on a slice of GF bread that has been spread with Sunbutter. He loves this combination!

I love the idea of Sunbutter on Sunshine Burgers! =D Did you see I used Sunbutter instead of tahini in my hummus pitas
