Wraptacular wrap week!

Last week, I thought it would be amusing to set myself the challenge of having a different, tasty, healthy wrap each day (hmmmm, maybe I need to get back to work? Ha ha ha ha!)

Seriously though, wraps are a great, quick lunch. Easy to prep, and even easier to eat, great for a lunchbox and handy if you are on the run or child wrangling.

The wraps themselves can be bit heavy on calories so I have balanced this with a small amount of protein and a pile of salad. I find that I stay full all afternoon and I get some of my “2 and 5” as well! If you want to cut back on calories, swap the wrap for a piece of mountain bread, but you will need to go lighter on the filling – they are quite spindly.

I’m on Weight Watchers at the moment, so all of these are between 8 and 10 points which is a pretty standard lunch for me in terms of calorie intake.

So here’s the result, all in all I’m wrapt*!

Monday – The King Tut

Wraps Monday

  • This one tastes kinda like a falafel kebab with a gazillion less calories.
  • Spread the wrap with greek yoghurt
  • Sprinkle over some dukkah
  • Add a pile of parsley, then a grated carrot
  • Throw over some blobs of canned beans (I used butter beans) mashed with lemon and cumin (about a third of a tin)
  • Add a squeeze of hot sauce (I use the red one from the Asian grocer)

I’m massively NOT a fan of tuna but if you are, it probably would be okay on this one.

Tuesday – Monsoon Madness

wraps Tuesday

This is one that used some leftovers from the night before. I make a super-quick, Indian-inspired dinner by flattening some chicken breast and frying in coconut oil with cumin, turmeric, garam masala, cardamom and curry leaves.

  • Spread the wrap with tomato chutney – I didn’t have any so used home-made capsicum and tomato dip
  • Scatter over the leftover Indian chicken
  • Add your leaves and cucumber
  • Dollop over some chilli raita

 Wednesday – My, How Fet-ching

wraps Wednesday

  • Use avocado as your base
  • Pile on your spinach leaves, some tomato and fresh basil
  • Break a matchbox-size chunk of feta over (I love the Baramba marinated feta)
  • Drizzle with lemon, olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper (tomato loves salt)

You could replace the feta with haloumi if you feel like cooking some – YUM!

Thursday – Moby Dickwrap

Wraps Thursday

I’m a huge fan of this classic combo. In this case it would’ve been better with some rocket and dill but I didn’t have any.

  • Slather on some cream cheese
  • Chuck on a couple of slices of smoked salmon
  • Drop on as many or few capers as you like
  • Add the salad of your choice
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon (and dill if you have some)

Friday – The Godmother

Wraps Friday

  • Spread tapenade over the base
  • Pile on your salad of choice; I used lettuce and tomato
  • Sprinkle over some olives
  • Drape over some prosciutto
  • Finish by scattering some torn mozzarella or bocconcini

Basil or parsley would’ve been tasty too on this one but I forgot. And you could easily add some antipasto ingredients to this one, like artichoke hearts or semi-dried tomato.

There you go – a week’s worth of wraps. Which one is your favourite? What are your favourite wrap ingredients?

  • Fabulous! There are some must tries in here for sure. My favourite wrap would be flaked poached salmon, squeeze of lemon, a scraping of aioli and some lamb’s lettuce. Heavenly!

    • YUM Tara, that sounds super tasty. I’ll try that one! You might be interested – tonight I’m doing a bastardised wrap….we are having a BBQ so I am trying out a Jamie Oliver recipe for flatbreads with rosemary oil, but using the Thermomix to make the dough. We’re going to have them with haloumi, tabouli, corn and asparagus. Wish me luck with the breads, not sure how they’ll go!

  • OK, at risk of sounding completely foolish – where does one procure wraps? Do you make them from scratch? Are they in a supermarket aisle? Do the wrap fairies bring them? Where do I source them from?!

    • Champagne Mia! I just buy mine from supermarket in bread aisle. Usually there is a section where you’ll find turkish bread, pizza bases, pita bread, wraps and mountain bread. Would be SOOOO much better if the fairies bought the. hahahahaha Either way, definitely yum! x
