July 14, 2011: Veggie Wrap Recipe

Bookmark and Share

I’ve shared with you that I’m trying my best to get healthy this month with daily exercise and a delicious fruit smoothie for breakfast. Another way I cut down on calories but load up on vitamins is by enjoying a raw veggie wrap for lunch.

I’m not including any measurements with this recipe because the amounts really depend on your particular tastes and the size of your tortilla or wrap (you can use a fancy one like spinach or sun-dried tomato flavor, but a plain old flour tortilla will work just fine). You could also put these ingredients in a pita bread for a change of pace.

This particular combination of ingredients is one of my favorites, but do feel free to substitute whatever you’ve got on hand and whatever sounds really good to you.

Veggie Wrap

1 tortilla, burrito size
Feta cheese, plain or flavored (you can substitute low fat cream cheese if you like)
Hummus, commercially prepared (any variety; my favorite is roasted pine nut) or homemade
Broccoli sprouts
Radishes, thinly sliced
Green onions, diced
Carrots, shaved into thin strips
Tomato, diced
Sunflower seeds
Mixed baby greens

Sprinkle feta cheese evenly over tortilla; microwave on high for about 30 seconds, just until cheese starts to melt and tortilla is softened.

Spread hummus over tortilla, sprinkle with remaining ingredients. Roll up like a burrito.

Serves one.

Tip: For some extra flavor, try splashing on a bit of balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing or a squirt of fresh lemon juice plus soy sauce.
