Quick Lunch Wraps

This is a super easy lunch idea to try! Wraps like these can satisfy your hunger without weighing you down. They’re also a great alternative to the greasy, fast food most people resort to when they’re in a hurry to grab lunch. Pair your wrap with a healthy snack or have it solo. Check out these great recipes I found on Pinterest!

Avocado and White Bean Salad Wraps from Forks Over Knives

INGREDIENTS

1½ cups cooked great northern beans or 1 (15-ounce) can, rinsed and drained

1 tablespoon liquid aminos (or tamari or soy sauce)

1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

1 large or 2 small avocados, halved

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 to 2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced

2 large handfuls of baby spinach

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Sauté the beans in a large frying pan over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm. Add the liquid aminos and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has cooked away. Add the vinegar and cook, stirring once or twice, until the liquid has cooked away. Remove from the heat and mash the beans with a fork.
  2. Scoop the avocado flesh into a large bowl and mash until there are no chunks. Add the mashed beans, lime juice, parsley, green chiles, garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder. Mix until combined. Add the salt and pepper to taste.

Add a row of tomato slices across the shorter dimension of the wrap, an inch or so from one edge, a row of spinach next to it, another row of tomatoes, and another row of spinach. Roll the wrap over the first row of tomatoes, and continue until it is completely rolled up. Chop into 3 to 4 sections.
