Sandwich Wrap

Sunday 20 May 2012

It was a lazy Sunday in our household. We were even in no mood to cook for lunch. Hence why I volunteered to dish up some wrap for us. So while Papa E and Poj Skype chat with lola I stayed in the kitchen.

I used ground beef this time (you can use grilled chicken too). I simply sauteed garlic, onion and tomato and the beef, seasoned it with salt and pepper until the beef is cooked. Whilst this is cooking I prepared my vegetables, I used what's in the fridge, we had lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes & mangoes (I know!). I used what we call Apple-mango in the Philippines. 

To prepare, I warmed the wrap for 10 seconds in the microwave then spread a thin amount of mayo or garlic mayo if available. I then put the lettuce, cucumber, tomato and mango slices (you can also add a thin slice of cheese for that added salty taste) and then the cooked meat. To wrap, I simply fold the bottom and wrap. Quick and simple lunch. 

What I like about this is that you can simply use what is available in the kitchen. You are welcome to use any sauce you like and any filling that you wish. And it's easy to make it as healthy and as filling as you want. A great alternative to the heavy burger!
