This simple burrito, full of roasted vegetables and wrapped in whole grains, is about to become a new family favorite. Play around with the veggie combinations. Winter squash would make a nice stand in for sweet potato, or try swapping in slices of red pepper for the tomatoes. This is a wonderful recipe to make in ahead and freeze: just make the burritos up as instructed, wrap in tinfoil, and place in a plastic freezer bag. To reheat, take out 24 hours in advance and heat in the microwave for 1 minute, turning halfway through.
- 3 lg. sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 3 lg. portobello mushrooms, sliced
- 1 pt. cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 lg. yellow onion, peeled and sliced
- 1 T. olive oil
- 10 (8 in.) whole-wheat wraps
- 1/2 c. pesto
- 1/2 c. grated Parmesan
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange potatoes on one baking sheet and mushrooms and tomatoes on another. Roast for 30-45 minutes, until desired texture is reached.
- While the vegetables are roasting, heat the oil in a frying pan on low and slowly cook the onions until brown. To get the best browning, do not add salt. You can speed this process up by raising the temperature, but the flavors will be best if you let the process take longer.
- When all of the vegetables are cooked, assemble the burritos, dividing vegetables, pesto and cheese evenly across the wraps. Serve warm.

During the holidays, we gather with friends and family to lavish each other with love...often in the form of food. As much as we all enjoy the sweets this time of year, they can be rough on our systems. That's true of everyone, but especially true of people with conditions like diabetes who need to watch their food carefully to manage their blood sugar safely. This year, why not show your love by adding in one or two options to help your guests manage their health?
