Grilled Vegetable Burritos

PREP: 30 minutes GRILL: 8 minutes MAKES 4 servings

1 red sweet pepper, quartered and seeded

1⁄2 of a small eggplant, cut crosswise into 1⁄2 -inch slices

1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise

1 portobello mushroom, stem removed (about 5 ounces)

Nonstick cooking spray

2 cloves garlic, minced

1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper

4 7- to 8-inch whole grain tortillas

1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

1 cup chopped fresh tomato


1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped (optional)

2 tablespoons light sour cream

1 Lightly coat sweet pepper, eggplant, zucchini, and mushroom with cooking spray.

2 For a charcoal grill, grill vegetables on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 3 minutes; turn vegetables. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes more or until vegetables are crisp-tender. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place vegetables on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Remove vegetables from grill; cool slightly.

3 Coarsely chop vegetables. In a medium bowl toss together chopped vegetables, garlic, and black pepper. Divide vegetables among tortillas, placing vegetables just below center and to within 1 inch of the edge. Sprinkle vegetables with cheese. Fold bottom edge of each tortilla up and over filling. Fold opposite sides in over filling. Roll up from the bottom.

4 Return filled tortillas to grill rack. Grill for 1 minute; turn and grill for 1 to 2 minutes more or until tortillas are light brown. Serve with tomato, pesto, avocado, and sour cream.
