This recipe is amazing. It's the best thing I have ever eaten. Made it last week and am making it again tonight. Love, love, love it. Almost forgot to say the I browned it in a pan on both sides. It's also very filling.

Anyone know a non-dairy cheese that also has no oil?

Sandi, depending on where you live, there are two new cheeses out made with nuts and no oil. Whole Foods carries the Kite Hill brand. The other one is from miyokoskitchen.com. Both are produced in northern California. I tried a camembert-like "cheese" from KH made from almond milk and it was good. Miyoko's Kitchen has some hard cheeses similar to cheddar that could be grated. Others have given these good reviews. The nut milk is cultured just like regular cheese.

Would the cheese still be considered dairy and/or processed whereby it can't be consumed on the 6 week challenge?

Oh yum! I was looking for something to use up leftover sweet potatoes, so I didn't slice into sticks or season, but it was still SO good. My non-ETL son also loved these wraps. I made all 4 wraps, and we each had one, so now I have 2 lunches ready to go in the fridge. I used spinach, because that's what I had (sort of a ETL given that you use whatever you have!) but next time I will use romaine. I bet that will be even better. Thanks, Ranette, for such a creative and delicious recipe!

Just had this for dinner along with leftover goulash recipe from this site. Yum! As I was making it, I realized that it was sweet potatoes with my guacamole recipe! I just baked a batch of sweet potatoes whole earlier in the day, which I usually do so I have them on hand for various recipes. I used a mix of arugula, kale, romaine and leaf lettuces, chopped them up, and mixed with shredded carrots and the rest of the clover sprouts I had on hand. This was a filling and delicious dinner. Thanks for the great idea, Ranette!

This was delicious! Definitely a keeper! Super easy to make and well worth waiting for the potatoes to bake. The guacamole was very good too-- next time will make extra.

Very useful recipe! Great technique for roasting sweet potatoes, that would have so many applications. Also good technique to demystify guacamole. This truly is 'Eat to Live'... :)

My favorite tortillas are Alvarado Street brand. They seem to be softer and more pliable than the Ezekiel and are still a sprouted grain tortilla. Try them, you'll like them!

Very good I made it for the first time tonight and it is one of the top receipts and it's easy to make. I made it and I am a guy that doesn't like to cook.

These wraps may not sound like much but they taste great. I had one almost every day for quite a while before I started trying some obvious variants. I like it just as much with unseasoned baked sweet potatoes, or white sweet potatoes, or Japanese jams. My favorite variant so far: skip the cheese, add minced garlic, lime zest, cilantro and chopped orange bell pepper. Fresh homemade tortillas also help but of course it is great with regular ones. I make tortillas with a mixer: three cups of whole grain flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 tablespoon xantham gum mixed thoroughly, then add 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and mix thoroughly, and then use the dough blade and add 1 1/4 cups of water. Keep the dough blade moving and judiciously add a tablespoon of water or flour as needed to add or subtract moisture until the dough blade produces a malleable dough, usually in ten to fifteen minutes. Then separate the dough into 9 to 15 dough balls, depending on how large you want your tortillas, roll them out flat on a countertop with a rolling pin, and heat them over medium-high heat on a teflon pan until they are lightly browned in each side. These tortillas are scrumptious and have no salt or oil. Everybody loves them. Hope that helps, Ammy07.

I don't know how to make home made tortillas.  I need to look into that.  What a great idea! Your variation sounds great also. Thank you, Prospero52, for posting your comments.

Truly the best wrap we’ve ever eaten. We didn’t add cheese and didn’t miss it. Thanks for this delicious recipe!

The title suits this recipe! We loved them, the sweet potato really adds a wonderful sweetness to the wrap. We did not add the cheese.  I rated it 5 stars!

We had for dinner tonight--delicious!  We used spinach instead of romaine and an onion salt blend from Trader Joe's that had onion, garlic, chives, green onions and a little kosher salt.  We used a small amount of grated goat cheese and added cherry tomatoes, cut in half. Our tortillas were Trader Jose's Whole Grain Flour tortillas with oats and flax seeds. A friend of mine from Mexico showed me how to roll--fold the sides in first and then roll up.Came out great and easy-to-eat. I rated it 5 stars but the site wasn't working right so didn't stick my comments with my rating--and I had to redo this twice to get it posted!

Made this for the first tme this week (May 2018) and my husband and I both enjoyed.  I used the suggestion in one of the comments to add bell pepper and lime zest.  I think the lime zest, though I only used a wee bit, really added the perfect touch.  Planning on making again this week, and adding some black beans too. Thanks to Ranette for posting! :)
