That's A Wrap

That's A Wrap

That's A Wrap......get it?  See what I did there?  I made a wrap and used the old movie production statement to make a STATEMENT..... OK, so I had no intention of posting this recipe today but after I put a picture of this up on Facebook yesterday  friend of mine asked for the recipe to put into the national newsletter that he sends out.  Not wanting to miss the opportunity to really promote this wrap I decided that I would put the recipe up today as well.


Ingredients: 1/2c Whole Wheat Flour, 5 Tbsp Water1/2c of whole wheat flour, 5 Tbsp water, 1/4c chickpeas, 1/2c red cabbage, 1/2 fire roasted diced tomatoes (I used sprout's)' 100g green bell pepper, 100g white onion, 100g Brussels sprouts, garlic to your liking, 75g avocado Nutritional Information: 562calories, 93g Carbs, 13g Fat, 21g Protein. Directions:

  1. In food processor add flour and turn on. Start dribbling the water in until the dough starts to come together. It will create a ball in the food processor.
  2. Remove dough and roll out fairly thin.
  3. Place rolled out dough on Pre-heated skillet. Allow to cook until no longer raw but not hard. About 3 minutes.
  4. Julienne the onion and bell pepper. In Pre-heated pan add in all the vegetables, chickpeas and cook for about 5-10mnutes until tender but not soft.
  5. Toward end of cooking process add in garlic.
  6. As vegetables ar softening place your wrap on a large plat and then spoon vegetable mixture into center of wrap.
  7. Lift one end over the vegetables and pull toward you. Fold insides and the roll away from you.
  8. On a hot panini pan place wrap and allow to form grill marks. About 3-5 minutes. (don't have a panini press?  Place a second pan on top of the wrap and add the weight of 2 cans of beans.
  9. As wrap is toasting place the split Brussels sprouts in a hot pan to brown.
  10. Once all is done place on plats. Sprinkle sriracha over the Brussels sprouts and add sliced avocado.

This was a terrific combination of sweet (peppers and onions) and spicy (sriracha) and was very filling without stuffing you. [gallery link="file" columns="4" orderby="rand"] Thank you for reading.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
