Mediterranean Breakfast Wrap

We found a vegetarian rennet Goat cheese! Delectable with a mildly sweet and at times an underlying saltiness, goat’s cheese has been our “go-to” cheese for quite some time.  Although not vegan, goat’s cheese is a healthier alternative to cow cheese.  Goat’s milk is not homogenized, and many people who have dairy sensitivity can better tolerate goat’s milk. Additionally, goat’s cheese is a good source of protein, phosphorous, riboflavin, and calcium.

This morning Lauren and I decided to put together  very tasty Mediterranean inspired breakfast wraps. Last night we picked up  a vegetarian goat cheese from Trader Joe’s, this particular variety has a hint of honey added for extra yum factor.  When purchasing goat cheese, or any cheese for that matter, be sure to check the ingredients. Sometimes cheese contains rennet, which is a complex of enzymes that come from the stomachs of animals, often baby calves.  For us vegetarians,  cheeses containing microbial rennet or vegetable rennet are acceptable.

Goat cheeses, whole grains, and tomatoes are frequently used as breakfast items in Mediterranean cuisine.  For extra taste, we added mint leaves to the wraps. 🙂

Mediterranean Breakfast Wrap

What you’ll need:

Whole grain wrap, (Ezekiel sprouted grain wraps are nutritionally the best)

1/2 tomato (diced or sliced)

2 large tablespoons goat cheese (Or 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese)

1/8 cup mint leaves

Spread out wrap. Add cheese, mash into the wrap a bit. Add diced/sliced tomato to the center of the wrap.  Heat in your microwave for about 30 seconds, or heat on a warmed  buttered skillet for one minute. Once warmed, add the mint leaves, roll up the wrap, and there you have it!

About govegetarianista86

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
