Roasted Sweet Potato Wraps with Pesto

Roasted Sweet Potato Wraps with Pesto

1 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1/2 cup pesto

2 cup mushrooms, cleaned and sliced 1/4 inch thick

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half

1 medium onion, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch slices

10-12 whole wheat burrito size wraps

3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease baking sheets with olive oil. Arrange sweet potato cubes, mushroom slices, and tomatoes (meat side up, skin on the pan) on a baking sheet.  Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Roast the vegetables for 30-45 minutes, until the tomatoes and mushrooms have softened and the sweet potatoes have browned.

Heat a heavy bottom pan ( over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and, when hot, add the onions. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until soft and caramelized. Turn down the heat if onions begin to brown too quickly. This process may take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes. Once the onions are browning and the pan begins to dry, add a few tablespoons of water and allow the moisture to cook off. Set aside.

Heat a nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Heat each wrap for about 10 seconds on each side, or until wrap becomes pliable. Spread 2 teaspoons of pesto across middle of wrap. Add handful of sweet potato cubes, several mushroom slices, and a tablespoon each of caramelized onions, tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese. Close the wrap by first folding in the sides and then rolling from the bottom up, tucking the sides in as you go. Repeat for remaining wraps. Refrigerate for several days or freeze for up to 6 months.

Heat wraps in the microwave in 30-second intervals, rotating and checking as you go. Alternatively, heat in the toaster oven or oven at 350°F, wrapped in foil for first 10 minutes and unwrapped for the final 5. Wraps are ready to eat when the filling is heated through and cheese has melted. If frozen, allow wraps to thaw in the refrigerator to speed up reheating time.
