I want to share with you my new favorite SUPER QUICK meal! I have been eating this for lunch on a very regular basis lately. This is definitely my new go-to healthy “get it all in one wrap” meal.
1 whole grain tortilla
1/2 cup (packed) steamed Harvest Sensations Kale
1/2-1/3 cup Eden Organics canned beans (Great Northern, Black, Chickpeas, etc)
1/4 cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Tbs chopped basil
2-3Tbs. Sabra Chipotle Hummus
I came across this hummus a few weeks ago and thought I’d give it a try. It is one of my new obsessions. Word to the wise…it is SPICY, but that is why I like it. This hummus has so many applications. I have been using it as a sandwich spread, mixed with beans and veggies (see above), thinning it and using it as a salad dressing. I LOVE IT!
Wraps are just such amazingly easy meals. For this wrap simply warm the tortilla and while it is warming mix together the tomatoes (slice in half), basil, beans, and hummus.
Once the tortilla is warmed lay down the steamed kale (spinach would work great here too…I would use it raw), and pour the bean/veggie/hummus mixture on top. Yum!
What are your favorite wrap ingredients?
UPDATE 4/28/11 – I JUST RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM HARVEST SENSATIONS STATING THAT THE PRODUCT IS PRE-WASHED…YEAH! THEY HAVE UPDATED LABELS STATING THIS.
I have come across another product that I am obsessed with…Harvest Sensations Kale Salad. A few months ago while shopping at Mother’s Market I saw the 1 pound bag of prepared kale and actually let out a little squeal (I am generally NOT the squealing type). I love kale and will definitely take the time to prep it when necessary, but it is soooooo nice to have someone else do the work if possible.
This is not a product that Mother’s always keeps on stock, so when I do see it I am sure to snatch-up a few bags. The last time I was there I made sure I told the produce manager how much I enjoy the product. Please take the time to get to know the produce manager at your local grocery. I have found that they are very receptive to suggestions and really do try their best to provide the customers with products they want.
Lately I have been buying the Harvest Sensations kale salad and either using it to make my Marinated Kale Salad or I will pop it in the steamer for a few minutes and keep it in the fridge to use for lunch over brown rice, throw it into soup, or use it as a quick veggie add to our dinner (it is great drizzled with warm dressing).
