What Goes in This Recipe
Fresh veggies - we used eggplant, zucchini, and red bell peppers. Yellow peppers would be good, too.
Goat cheese - this creamy cheese pairs really well with veggies.
High Fiber Flour Tortillas - we used high fiber/low fat tortillas. This is the number one thing to watch with wraps if you are trying to lose weight as not all tortillas are created equal!

How to Make this Veggie Wrap Recipe
Wash and cut up vegetables. The peppers can be cut into thin strips and the eggplant and zucchini into bite-sized pieces.
Add vegetables, 1 teaspoon of oil, and salt into a large bowl and toss well.
Heat a large skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat.
Add vegetables to the skillet, spread out as much as possible.
Stir vegetables often, cooking for about 30 minutes or until they are just tender.
Add arugula, tomato, ½ teaspoon olive oil, and vinegar to a medium sized bowl and mix well. Set aside.
In a separate skillet, warm the tortillas.
Spread the goat cheese evenly down the middle of warm tortilla wrap.
Layer the vegetables down the middle of the tortilla, topped with the arugula mix.
Slice the veggie wraps on the diagonal, and use a toothpick to secure.
We wrapped this one in butcher paper and it held it together nicely and looked pretty!

Healthy Wrap Variations
You can make the veggies in the oven, as well. I love the caramelization roasting gives the veggies, so by all means use this method.
You can use any vegetables you'd like, and as all veggies are zero SmartPoints, fill it up! I'm thinking of adding lightly sautéed celery for a little crunch and a pinch of garlic the next time.
Any leafy greens would be good in this recipe. Try romaine or shredded red cabbage, too. Add alfalfa sprouts or green onions for even more crunch!
You could also add extra seasoning, like garlic powder, onion powder, or Italian seasoning to these easy veggie wraps. A squeeze of lemon juice will brighten the flavor, as well.
Fresh herbs would be delicious, too. Fresh thyme sautéed with the vegetables would give this veggie wrap recipe great flavor, as would basil or rosemary.
If you like mustard, Dijon mustard would also give these wraps a boost of flavor.
You can even switch up the tortilla wraps to a flavored tortilla. Just be aware of the calories and fat if you are on the Weight Watchers program and adjust accordingly.
You can see the nutrition info on the wraps we used below on the nutrition card, so try to stay in that range. The company also makes a whole wheat tortilla.
When making wraps to go, it's a great idea to keep the tortilla separate and put the wraps together just before eating, especially if they have a sauce. It will keep the wrap from getting soggy.
Wrapping your sandwich in parchment or wax paper will keep moisture from forming like it does when you use cling or plastic wrap.
Add a layer of well-dried spinach or lettuce between the tortilla and filling to help keep the tortilla dry.
