Curry Roasted Vegetable Wrap and Turquoise Earrings

Turquoise Earrings
I've been looking at my copper cuff bracelet blanks differently.
I came up with this long, dramatic design. I found the wire is difficult to coil after texturing but managed a small coil on the bottom. These turquoise pretties are available in my Etsy shop.

Curry Roasted Vegetable and Avocado Wrap
The original inspiration recipe found here is a curry roasted veggie and avocado naan-wich from Naturally Ella.
The only big differences for me were leaving out the onion and using a wrap instead of naan. Changing the bread is a great way to reduce the calories!
The filling includes:
1 cup of diced red pepper (I used yellow because it was $1 less a pound!)
1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half (I used one large regular tomato)
1.5 cups diced zuchinni
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder
salt to taste
1/2 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed 

Preheat the oven at 425 F. In a roasting pan, toss all ingredients except the chickpeas. 
Roast for 15 - 20 minutes until veggies are tender. Then stir in the chickpeas and continue to roast for 5 additional minutes. 
The avocado is used like a mayonnaise. Mash up 1 avocado with 2 tablespoons of cilantro or to taste. I used the freeze dried. Sprinkle in the lime juice if desired. 

Then you spread the avocado on the wrap followed with the veggies. So delicious and healthy! 

Next time a make it I'm going to spice it up a bit since both Jim and I like our curried foods to have some heat.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a beautiful week. ~Val


  1. Love those earring,they are pretty

  2. That wrap looks and sounds absolutely delicious! Yum!
    Gorgeous earrings - love the curly bits at the bottom :) Copper and turquoise look exciting together!

  3. Hi Val,
    The earrings are beautiful I love turquoise and copper together. I do not know if you did this or not, but it maybe easier to curl the ends if you heat the copper first with a torch. I am going to have to try the Curry Roasted Vegetable and Avocado Wrap it sound delicious.

  4. These earring are so unique, Val. Love them.
    You can bet that I will definitely be trying this wrap.
    Mmmmmmm, looks so yummy!
    You have a wonderful week ahead.

  5. I wouldn't say no to a wrap like that! Leftovers could make a great lunch, I can imagine these would taste delicious both warm and cold.

  6. Wasn't sure what I was going to see when I clicked on the title! But, taken separately, the earrings are lovely and the wrap sounds delicious. I love chickpeas!

  7. That's a clever idea to use the bracelet blanks like that, they look pretty with the turquoise.

  8. this is a great recipe! i am yearning for summer, when all these veggies are on hand, fresh from the garden. Those earrings are fantastic!!! The curl at the end gives them an added punch of drama. They look like they have nice movement too.

  9. That looks delicious! All my favorite vegetables too. I'm always looking for good wrap recipes. When the hubster feels like tacos, I'm not big on meat, so I cut up zucchini and yellow squash, put it in the sauce, and put that on my taco shells. I really am trying to eat healthier. It's not as easy as it used to be. Thanks for sharing this!

  10. I love the new earrings...very creative!

  11. Now, that's a healthy wrap! I think I love any kind of wrap! HaHaHa
