How To: Make a Sandwich Wrap

On my broccoli recipe post, I had a few comments on my wrap and how it looked good. I thought I’d share here how I put it together. Wraps are one of our favorite quick, easy and healthy meal option. They are great in the morning with eggs, or for lunch or dinner. I’ll share my method and I hope you make one with your preferences. They are yummy!

I like to stuff my wrap as full as I can – it’s almost like a salad in a wrap!

Assemble your ingredients. Here are some of my favorite foods for a lunch wrap:

  • a large wrap – I LOVE these Joseph’s flax oat bran & whole wheat lavash breads – 100 calories per wrap!
  • grilled chicken breast
  • hummus
  • mustard
  • Sriracha
  • cottage cheese
  • banana peppers
  • tomatoes
  • onions
  • shredded carrots
  • peppers
  • cilantro
  • lettuce

Basically anything you’d eat on a sandwich or salad is fair game here.

It’s best to start with your soft ingredients like the mustard and hummus. You want to put the food on the far end of your wrap so you can roll it up. Don’t put it in the middle of the wrap!

Next add your meat or bigger veggies.

Finally, add your lettuce. I like a lot of lettuce! Then, start rolling up your wrap at the end where all the food is. Roll tightly. About halfway up when you are wrapping, tuck your ends in to hold the food. You don’t want anything to fall out. I wish I could show you my method but it’s pretty much impossible to take a photo while doing this!

Finally, cut your masterpiece in half and enjoy! I made a few of these to pack in our lunches. They last fairly well for a day or two in the fridge but not much longer as they will begin to get soggy. Enjoy!
