It's A Wrap!

Wraps and pita's have to be one of our favorite summer time lunches or light suppers, as both can be made without the hot oven on ,and because most ingredients are fresh, they are cool!

Like a pita, you can add just about anything you like to a wrap and get creative with combinations or theme.

I made this one today:

First I chopped up some fresh veggies(green and red peppers, spinach, red onions, tomatoes, and some shredded cheddar:

Meanwhile I was preparing a new batch of Tamari Roasted Chickpeas(link to recipe a few posts down)These are great on just about anything, and add some protein!

To prepare I spread a couple of tablespoons of cream cheese. You can use any kind you like, today I used my favorite onion and chives flavored.

I then layer all the other ingredients onto the cream cheese:

Roll up tightly and cut in half. Enjoy right away, or wrap in plastic wrap and store in fridge or lunch box until ready to enjoy.These make a nice on the go meal as they can be ate on the run. We take these on our hikes often. You can skip the cream cheese and add a salad dressing of your choice. With the chickpeas, Annies Asian Sesame Dressing goes quite well. I wouldn't recommend dressing if you're making these to eat later as they will get soggy, where with the cream cheese, they stay nice all day.

That looks soooooooooooooo delicious. Did I mention that it looked delicious. But just in case you missed it the first 2 times, it looks delicious.
