Meet my current obsession: Lavash and Potato wraps. I could eat these all day long if no one else in my house demanded food. They are crazy fast to make, really filling and taste amazing. I can’t think of anything I would rather eat right now.
They are also really great to throw into a lunch bag or picnic basket. I can see myself pulling one out of my bag after a long bike ride. Mmm!
Lavash is a really simple flatbread that you can find at many grocery stores or ethnic food stores. It should only have a few simple ingredients: flour (preferably whole grain), water, salt, yeast. You can turn lavash into pizza (check back for a recipe for that soon!) or into awesome chips for hummus. Or you can just put things on it and roll it up like I do.
Preferably potatoes. Ahh potatoes. I love them. Sometimes I forget how amazing potatoes taste. I forget how they really fill up my belly and keep me feeling good for a long time. ust add in some greens and i’ve got my perfect little meal. You can bake several potatoes at the beginning of the week and store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator Then when the urge for some food hits you can just pull one out, slice it up and make a wrap!
ow I do make these with kale but you can make it with any green that you fancy: baby spinach, mustard greens, collard greens, etc. In fact, I want you to know that the whole beauty of these Less Than 6 Ingredients Recipes is that they are yours to build upon. I’m just giving you a simple outline. It tastes amazing in the simplicity but you are free to change it how you desire. I’ll give you the map and you choose the destination.
Serves 1 (just double, triple or quadruple for more servings!)
- 1 lavash wrap (preferably whole grain)
- 1 medium sized potato
- 1 cup chopped kale (or other greens)
- green onions, green and white parts sliced
- Tablespoon reduced fat or fat free vegan mayo (I have a recipe HERE on the biscuit recipe or you can use your favorite homemade or store bought variety. Try the Fo Reals Life Ranch recipe on this wrap too – it is dynamite!)
- salt and pepper to taste
ook the potato. If you prefer to bake it you can bake it (and several others) at 350 degrees for about an hour. If you are like me and just want to microwave it really quickly you can just poke it several times with a fork and microwave on high for around 3 minutes. Slice the potato once it has cooled slightly.
If you prefer your kale cooked you can steam it for 5 minutes or microwave it for 35 seconds. I like it both raw and cooked but raw has more of a green earthy flavor that may not appeal to everyone. I wouldn’t bother cooking spinach beforehand if you would prefer to use that.
Spread the mayo or dressing on the lavash. Top with the green onions and kale. Lay the potatoes on top, season with salt and pepper and roll up the wrap! his thing is huge and I am always stuffed after eating one.. mmm! Top with some hot sauce or salsa if you wish.
