Spicy Sweet Potato & Satay Sauce Tortilla Wraps

This healthy, easy lunch idea is perfect for those Saturday afternoons when you’ve just been for a long walk with the kids, finished the weekly food shop, or need something quick and tasty to feed the kids. Honestly, we threw this vegan lunch recipe together in about 20 minutes with a bit of creativity and imagination. This sweet potato tortilla wrap recipe shows that cooking plant-based food is not complicated, BUT it is absolutely delicious!!

The spicy-sweet potato combined with the peanutty sweet punch of the satay sauce creates a moreish lunchtime treat that really dances on your tongue. It honestly works together so well, the taste is just delicious! Kids will love this fun lunch idea too. Even though this sweet potato is a little spicy, the satay sauce really cooks it down. So this works as a great lunch idea for kids too, you might just want to use a smaller wrap for the little ones.

Why Sweet Potato?

But you don’t need to convince me to eat sweet potato, I just love it! It has so much more flavour than white potato, soaks up spices brilliantly and is so healthy too! Did you know sweet potato counts as one of your five a day of fruit and vegetables? Pair it with a wholemeal wrap and you’ll have a healthy, nutritious lunch to feed the children. This is also a super budget-friendly lunch idea as the ingredients are usually cheap to buy.

How easy is this recipe?

This is such an incredibly easy lunch recipe and really works awesomely when you’re in a rush. Simply put all your favourite salad items (could be leafy greens, tomato, chickpeas, beans, peppers, onions, whatever you like), it really doesn’t matter, on a wrap and top with the crispy, spicy sweet potato and satay sauce. So simple yet so delicious! You can also meal prep this lunch by making the salad and satay sauce in advance, so you only need to cook the sweet potato on the day. Who doesn’t want to make their life easier?

But I don’t have time to make the sauce?

If you want to make this an even easier, quicker lunch recipe and don’t have time to make the sauce, you could also top with some Nandos Vegan Perinaise or Sweet Chilli Sauce, either would very well. Trust me though, the satay sauce is so delicious, give it a try! I always say that all of our recipes are adaptable, so if you like it a little less spicy simply reduce the spice, or just cover the sweet potato in salt and pepper. You’re the one eating, so most importantly just enjoy!

We hope you enjoy our healthy, easy vegan sweet potato wraps and have a lovely lunchtime at home.

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time25 mins

Ingredients
 4 wholemeal tortilla wraps (or other variety)
 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or whatever oil you have handy)
 1 large sweet potato
 2 tsp cayenne pepper
 1 tsp smoked sweet paprika
 ½ tsp onion granules or powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 Your choice of salad (I used leftovers of lettuce, tomato, sweet pepper, spring onion, and quinoa, but use whatever you like)
Satay Sauce Ingredients (makes 200 ml)
 ¼ cup hot water
 1 garlic clove
 ¼ cup maple syrup
 ½ tsp ground coriander
 ½ tsp cumin
 ¼ tsp salt
 4 large medjool dates
  cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
 2 tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce
 1 tsp white wine vinegar

Sweet Potato Instructions
1

Cover the dates in the hot water in a small cup and leave to rest for a few minutes.

2

In a bowl, coat the sweet potato with the cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, onion granules and 1 tbsp olive oil, and set aside while you make the satay sauce.

3

Mince or very finely slice the garlic.

4

Add the rest of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth (including the date water). Add more water if needed.

5

Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat with the rest of the oil.

6

Add the sweet potato, flipping often so they don’t burn or stick.

7

When soft in the middle (about 8 minutes) turn up the heat for the last couple of minutes to crisp up a bit. Don’t worry if they look a little charred, they will still be super yummy.

8
