Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (40 g or 16 tomatoes)
  • 1/2 cup black olives (65 g), pitted
  • 20 fresh basil leaves
  • 8 oz vegan cream cheese (225 g), softened, see notes
  • 3 large flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. To rehydrate the sun-dried tomatoes, just soak them in hot water for about 20 minutes or until they’re soft. You can also buy sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil (they’re ready to use).
  2. Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and chop them. Chop the olives and basil as well and add all the filling ingredients to a bowl (sun-dried tomatoes, olives, basil and cream cheese). Then mix until well combined using a fork or a spoon.
  3. Spread the mixture over the 3 tortillas into an even layer.
  4. Roll tortillas tightly and slice into 12 pieces (each roll). You should have 36 pinwheels. I prefer to refrigerate the rolls before slicing them for at least 2 hours to harden and also to blend the flavors, but it’s totally optional.
  5. Serve immediately or keep them covered in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.

Notes

  • We used store-bought cream cheese, but you can also make our vegan cream cheese recipe (omit the onion powder and dried dill if you want).
  • Feel free to use any type of olives, fresh or dried herbs or any ingredient you like.
  • We used large tortillas (10 inches or 25 cm), so if you use smaller tortillas, you’ll need more.
  • If you can’t eat gluten, use corn tortillas instead. As they’re smaller, you’ll need more as well.
