Whole wheat tortilla wraps

Whole wheat tortilla wraps

Method

  • On 1 tortilla, spread 2 teaspoons of cottage cheese, add 1 slice of cheese (cut in half), 1 slice of turkey (cut in half), 2 slices of tomatoes and 3 cucumber slices. Wrap and set aside.
  • On the 2nd tortilla, spread 1 tablespoon of cream cheese, add some corn, the carrot, a lettuce leaf (with the center stem removed), and the chicken. Wrap and set aside
  • On the 3rd tortilla, add the avocado (cut into 1 cm slices), a slice of salmon or the avocado and the egg (cut into 1 cm slices). Wrap and set aside.

To assemble

  • Cut each tortilla wrap in half using a serrated knife. You should have 6 tortilla halves which will be used as “little cars”. 
  • For each half tortilla, you will need 4 thin slices of cucumber which means you will need 24 cucumber slices total which will be used as “wheels”!
  • Instead of using toothpicks to hold everything together you will be using carrot strips. Insert one carrot strip in the front part of the each tortilla half and another in the back part of each tortilla half.
  • Insert a cucumber slice on the edge of each carrot strip, piercing it in the soft part. You should have 6 little “cars”.
  • Serve with lettuce leaves, carrot strips and cucumber strips.
