Protein Lavash Wrap
Over the past year I’ve learned a ton about eating healthy. I can’t claim to eat wisely all the time, but I do try to stay away from certain, harmful things just in general and one of those things is processed food (i.e. food with ingredients I can’t pronounce).
Enter: Lavash bread.
A Mediterranean flat bread with a long history, Lavash bread usually only contains three ingredients: flour, water, and salt. I buy mine from our local produce market.
When made correctly, the final product is a flat, sturdy, oblong bread that is perfect for wraps, and this wrap is one of my favorites.
Here’s what you’ll need…
- 1 Lavash wrap (12-14 inches long; cut off excess or make into two mini-wraps if desired)
- 5 oz can of tuna (I used Bumblebee solid white in water)
- 1-2 TB mayo (or sub sour cream/creme fraiche/Mexican crema/mascarpone)
- 2-3 TB pine nuts
- 2-3 TB chopped parmesan cheese (from the wedge)
- 1/2 to whole small avocado
- 1 C lettuce (the greener the better!)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
Unfold a lavash wrap on a flat surface and set aside until you are ready to assemble the wrap.
Open and drain a 5oz can of tuna. You can use any protein you’d like her (chicken, beef, pork, tofu), but I think tuna works best in this recipe. Add the tuna, mayo, salt, and pepper to a small mixing bowl and set aside.
Break off small pieces of cheese by gently sticking the sharp end of a knife through the rough edges of the wedge of parmesan cheese. If the chunks are still too large, cut them down until they are in about 1/2″ around.
Mix it Up
Add the cheese and pine nuts to the bowl of tuna and mix until all ingredients are fully combined.
Layer it Up
To assemble the wrap, just layer it up!
First the tuna mixture….
Then the lettuce…
Then the avocado.
Wrap it Up
All that’s left is for you to roll up your wrap, making sure to pull the ends in at both sides.
Then cut it in half and chow down!
I had this wrap for lunch today and it was AH-MAZING! Here’s to the yummy use of Lavash bread and the variations of this wrap ya’ll will come up with on your own!
