I threw this together for lunch and it turned out so good that I just had to share it! I did not make it with any meat but feel free to add chicken, tofu or whatever you choose.
I buy these wraps in the mexican food aisle at the grocery store. They are so much better than other high fiber low calorie wraps I have tried. These are a nice big size and are soft so they are easy to wrap up. They are made with EVOO , baked with 5 whole grains, have 12 grams (48% daily intake) of fiber and are only 100 calories!!!
Here is my secret to a good wrap...I use this spreadable Laughing Cow cheese (only 35 calores and 2g fat). When I use this I don't feel like I need to add any sauce because it it nice and creamy. That means NO extra calories or fat from cheese slices or mayo!
Whole grain quinoa...this stuff is amazing! I just recently tried quinoa for the first time and now I am obsessed. I eat it for breakfast like an oatmeal or I use it to substitute rice. If you haven't ever had it, "google" it! It's so good for you! :)
INGREDIENTS FOR WRAP
Kale - about a handful torn up
1/4 Red Onion sliced
1/4 Red Pepper sliced
1/4 C Quinoa - cook as directed on package
1 wedge Laughing Cow cheese
(I used Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomatoe & Basil Flavored)
1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Chia Seed (optional)
Place skillet over Medium heat and drizzle in 1 T EVOO. Add in Kale, Onion & Red Pepper. When onions becomed softened add in cooked quinoa and chia seeds. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon into skillet. Stir for for about a minute to get everything incorporated and enough time to heat up the quinoa. Spread wedge of Laughing Cow cheese onto wrap and top with veggie/quinoa mixture.
Wrap up and eat while hot. *YUMMY* Bon appetit! :)
