3 Wraps Ideal for Your Everyday Lunch

Food 18 September 2018 | 0 Comments

Humans as we are, we can’t do away with our basic needs no matter how mundane they may be. Whether we belong to the select-few high class or whether we belong to the majority middle, we are always bounded by our mortality in the form of our biological needs.

Since this is a given, all we could do is to devise ways to give a twist to each need. One of which is to provide variety to one of the most common constants in our lives: eating. We toss a few more salads, we spice up a few dishes, but the bottom line is we just satiate our palates as best as we could while meeting our needs.
Here are three suggestions to satiate your craving for wrapped lunches:

1. Vegetable Egg Salad Wraps
One way to make sure we don’t compromise our health while satiating our palates is to make sure what we ingest is healthy. For this healthy treat you will need hard-cooked eggs, chopped cucumber, chopped yellow summer squash or zucchini, shredded carrot, chopped red onion, mayonnaise, Dijon-style mustard, milk, fresh tarragon or basil, salt, paprika, lettuce leaves, tortillas and tomatoes.

Combine eggs, cucumber, yellow summer squash, carrot and red onions in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together Dijon-styled mustard, milk, mayonnaise, salt, tarragon and paprika. Coat dressing over egg mixture.
Prepare your lettuce leaf and arrange accordingly in your tortilla. Prepare around three to four tomato slices and include in the tortilla sandwich. Place the egg mixture before rolling up the tortilla. Cut the rolls in half before serving.

2. Mediterranean Chicken Wraps
If you’re looking for a wrap with just the right texture of white meat, this wrap is for you. For this you will need plain fat-free Greek yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice or red wine vinegar, tortillas, dried dill weed, baby spinach, cooked chicken breast and fresh vegetable strips of cucumber, red sweet pepper, carrot and yellow summer squash.

Prepare and stir together yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and dill weed. In the tortillas, prepare chicken, vegetable strips and spinach. Scoop in the yogurt mixture before rolling up tortillas. Cut in half then serve.

3. Prosciutto & Artichoke Panini
For those looking for a heavier form of wrap, upgrading to a sandwich would be a good move. For this, you will need ciabattas or other crusty rolls, mozzarella, olive oil, marinated artichoke hearts, basil leaves, prosciutto, black pepper and lemon. Spread olive oil on the sides of the rolls.

Add in a later of mozzarella, artichokes and basil on the bottom half. Place prosciutto on top. Lightly top it with lemon zest and black pepper before placing the other top of the roll. Prepare a large skillet and heat under medium fire. Place the sandwiches and cook until they turn a light gold. Invert the sandwiches to heat the other side and wait for the cheese to melt. Best served a short while after heating.
