2 whole wheat tortilla wraps

2 cups (500 mL) arugula
1/2 cup (125 mL) asiago cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp (30 mL) fresh basil, sliced
3 Tbsp (45 mL) pine nuts, roasted

In a pot of boiling salted water, blanch carrot for two minutes. Add asparagus and cook for two to three minutes longer. Drain and immediately rinse under cold water to preserve the bright color of the vegetables.

In a pan, heat two tablespoons (30 millilitres) of olive oil over medium heat and saut?arrot, asparagus, zucchini, peppers, tomato and mushroom until tender.

Place arugula in the middle of each wrap and place cooked vegetables over top. Add asiago, basil and pine nuts. Assemble the wraps and serve.

Gently slice the basil with a sharp knife if you chop it, the leaves will turn black. Serves two.
