Vegetarian Easter Burritos with Sweet Potato, Slaw, Radish and Spring Onion

I grew up Jewish, and while my siblings and I often participated in neighborhood Easter-egg hunts, our Easter dinner was much more likely to consist of pasta or Chinese take-out than a roast ham. Though I do remember marshmallow peeps being present for dessert. (Yum.) Easter was really the Spring equivalent of Halloween to me: lots of candy on a seemingly arbitrary holiday (yes, I do in fact now know that Easter has something to do with JC's resurrection).

At college we still recognize Easter, thought not very officially. My freshman year we painted hard boiled eggs and organized an Easter egg hunt on our dorm hall. My sophomore year I was in Italy, where Easter is a national holiday of epic proportions and failing to recognize the day makes you a heathen. I spent the day in Florence watching some sacred box be exploded by fireworks in the main piazza (don't ask, it's some Italian thing), followed by a parade and copious amounts of food.

Last year as a Junior I remember behing handed some jelly beans on Easter.

This year, I'm making Easter my own with a burrito that will surely knock your (Easter bunny-themed) socks off. It combines winter and spring ingredients, using sweet potatoes and cabbage as its base while adding first-of-the-season radishes and spring onion on top. The sweet potatoes are warm, the slaw and veggies crisp and cool. It is best served on a beautiful spring day surrounded by flowers, and followed by marshmallow peeps.

P.S. I think you could replace the tortilla for matzo for a sexy Passover hors d'oeuvre.

Recipe below.
