spinach & turkey wrap

another simple lunch recipe is a spinach and turkey wrap. pile on the veggies and turkey on a tortilla or crepe and wrap. it’s so yummy!

the original recipes has the spinach and mushrooms cooked but you can also eat them fresh like i did. i also threw in a few more vegetables, including bell pepper and onion. lightly toast it to melt cheese or don’t – that’s up to you! either way, it’s healthy, delicious and easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 2 premade crêpes – or –
    2 whole wheat flour tortilla wrap
  • 2 oz fresh cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 colored bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 thin slice of onion
  • 2 (1-oz) slices lean turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese or your favorite low fat cheese – dairy or non dairy options
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme (optional)

Preparation

Cooked version – if eating fresh, skip this step:
Lightly coat a pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, sauté mushrooms about 5 minutes, until they release their liquid. Add spinach and sauté lightly 2 minutes until wilted. Season with thyme, if desired, and remove from heat.

Place one crêpe or tortilla on a clean counter. Layer spinach, mushroom. 1 slice of turkey and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll crêpe or tortilla. Bake in a toaster for 5-10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
