Spinach Wraps

If you recall a recent Frugal Kitchens 101 topic was Think Vegetarian.  The reason being anytime you eliminate meat from a dish you more than likely are going to be saving money.  Meat tends to be the most expensive ingredient in any dish.  While soups, stews, and casseroles stretch the amount of meat needed for a meal, eliminating meat occasionally simply saves on the cost of the meat.  Vegetarian dishes do not have to be expensive or complicated either,

Just look at these gorgeous, mouthwatering spinach wraps I made.  I cannot take full credit for these as I got the idea from one of our kids who made a variety of sandwiches for their little one's birthday party that included several adults.  It is always important at these types of events to not only offer a nice variety of crudites but also meatless dishes.  Some are not eating meat for whatever reason (eg. health, personal conviction) so including meatless choices in the party menu is a good idea.

Spinach wraps are extremely easy to make.  They are quite delightful with a refreshing flavour.  You can serve then cut in half as pictured or cut into quarters for smaller appetizers.  I added the alfalfa sprouts just for that extra punch of flavour.

There are no measurements for these wraps.  Make up as many as you want.  Spread a tortilla with hummus.  Add a single layer of baby spinach on top, followed by mushrooms and alfalfa sprouts.  Roll the wraps, pressing slightly to hold the wrap together.  Cut as desired.  Secure with a toothpick for serving.
