|Mmmmmm, I am addicted to my own salad-wrap-things that I just started making. **I had a dream that I made these things, and when I woke up, the things sounded so good, that I decided I should try it. LOL... Soooo glad I did!**
Probably any large tortilla/wrap will work for this, I use the Mission Garden Spinach Wraps. Nice and big, and a pretty green colour! The first one I made was kind of over-stuffed (LOL), so the next night I made two. Much neater, that way.
You'll also want some of our favourite leafy green stuff (Lettuce, Spring mix, Arugula, Kale, Spinach, Romaine, you get the idea)
1 Hass Avocado (should 'give' a little when you press it. You don't want "mushy", but you don't want it too hard.)
Portobello Mushroom cap (the big kind, not the "Baby Bellas"), stem removed, gills cleaned
Bell Pepper (any colour, I like red or orange...)
Alfalfa or Bean Sprouts
Chia Seeds (yes, I put them on darn-near everything!)
And your favourite cheese (shredded, crumbled or otherwise small pieces...)
You could also put in some cucumber, Matchstick Carrots (or Carrot Ribbons, if you like)
Cut the avocado in half, get the pit out, and scoop one half of the yumminess into a bowl. (A squirt of lemon juice will keep the avocado a pretty green color, btw...)
Mash avocado in the bowl with a fork, and spread onto your wrapper(s).
Slice the other half into med/thin slices, we'll use them in a moment.
Get a handful of the leafy green stuff and lay it in the middle of the wrap
slice the portobello cap into strips and lay them over the greens. I can fit 3-4 strips neatly. (The rest goes into a brown paper bag, use 'em fairly soon. Also can survive in the fridge in a produce bag. Again, I suggest use them soon.)
Lay those avocado slices on, next
Slice the tomato, and lay that on next. I used about half of one medium size tomato. (If the tomato is really large, you can cut the slices in half so they fit better)
Bell pepper cut into strips, lay 'em on the tomato
Add some sprouts, some chia seeds, and a little sour cream (if you like), and a little cheese
Fold over one side of the wrap to cover all your salady goodness, fold up the bottom, so it doesn't fall out, then fold the other side over to finish it up!
and, of course, enjoy
*Obviously, you can tweak this to suit your personal tastes, this is the version I dreamed up and made.
I only wish I had thought of it earlier in the Summer!
But there we have it. Try it now, or file it away to try later.
