My Mediterranean wrap came to be after one of those moments when you wake up and you’re starving and there is nothing easily accesible to eat in the kitchen. Usually I have some eggs I can whip up quickly but there were no eggs in the fridge. Which was fine because I don’t really like eggs, but I’m still hungry! I opened the pantry and it was like looking at pieces of a puzzle, so many random ingredients. I wonder, what can I throw together without much prep or work involved. And then, like a mystery being unravelled I begin to see the clues. As I look around the kitchen the ingredients highlight themselves. I start pulling out what has been revealed and begin to put the pieces of my puzzle together. My stomach will soon be rewarded. The best part of my wrap…it’s so easy to make and requires no cooking. Perfect for the summer time when you’re trying to keep the kitchen as cool as possible!
Pieces of the puzzle:
- 15oz can of chick peas
- 3 tBs extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 of lemon
- salt & pepper
- 1/2 cup of green olives
- 1 garlic clove
- spinach tortilla
- romaine lettuce
- sheep’s milk feta
-Drain and rinse chick peas. Pour into a bowl and add in; olive oil, juice from lemon, salt and pepper. With a fork or masher, lightly mash peas.
-With a garlic press add garlic to bowl. Slice olives and add to bowl. Stir everything together and give it a taste. Add salt and pepper if needed.
-Warm tortilla and start building your wrap!
- lay a piece of lettuce on tortilla
- spoon chick pea mixture over lettuce
