Vegetarian Tortilla Recipe with a Crisp Salad Filling

Vegetarian Tortilla Recipe
There are many types of tortilla recipes so it helps to define exactly what type of tortilla recipes we are looking at here. For example, a Spanish tortilla recipe is a combination of eggs and potatoes. The word "tortilla" is Spanish for omelet so a Spanish tortilla recipe would be an omelet containing diced potatoes and sometimes onion or bell pepper for crunch and color. The other kind of tortilla recipe refers to a roll up tortilla sandwiches recipe, which is what the following is. Tortillas, in this sense of the word, do make a nice change from bread so if you want a quick and easy lunch, but you are tired of bread, reach for a pack of tortillas, and make a tasty snack.

The following roll up tortilla sandwiches recipe is perfect for vegetarians. A creamy cheese and lime mixture is spread over the tortillas first, and then they are filled with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and cucumber. Try to use the English telegraph-style cucumber for these, else just use what you can find. You might like to add some pickles or capers for saltiness too. This combination of tortillas, salad ingredients, fresh herbs, and cheese is nutritious and well balanced, which is exactly what you need if you want a light yet energizing lunch.
There are plenty of other tortilla recipes you can choose from if you fancy a meat or seafood filling, but this one is crisp, fresh, and very nice if you do not. You can use a different type of onion if you want, since the red onion is mainly used for color. Green onions also go well with the cheese and other salad ingredients in this tasty vegetarian tortilla wrap recipe.

Best Healthy Tortilla Wrap Recipes
This Vegetarian tortilla recipe is so simple to make. If you are making tortilla wraps for lunch, rather than to be sliced up for a party, you do not have to leave them in the refrigerator for half an hour. That is mainly so they will set in shape and not unravel when you cut them into halves, quarters or pinwheels. These are great for parties or buffets, incidentally, and you can slice them into one inch thick rounds. Make sure they are well chilled though (maybe give them a whole hour rather than half an hour in the refrigerator) so they hold their shape.
