When I first started WW, one of my favorite lunches was a Fresh Veggie Wrap. Incredibly simple...but oh so good. It's chevre, spinach, carrots and roasted red peppers, finished with a splash of light balsamic vinegar. I haven't eat this wrap in a long time. I don't know why...but when I spotted my favorite spreadable goat cheese at the store, I was quickly reminded of this incredible wrap and decided to bring it back into my life.
This spreadable goat cheese is outstanding. It is creamy and mild and spreads wonderfully right from the fridge. It's local to me and I am "lucky" to be able to enjoy it! :) It calculates to 2 points+ per 1 oz. If you aren't a fan of goat cheese you could substitute hummus, it works equally as well as a base for this wrap. This is another recipe where I am not going to furnish nutrition information, but rather count up the points manually. It has so few ingredients, most of which are zero point foods, that this seems like the best way to calculate points for this item.
Fresh Veggie Wrap
4 Points Plus
4 Points Plus
2 point+ tortilla wrap of your choice
1 oz. Chevre ( spreadable goat cheese - 2 point+)
handful of fresh, organic baby spinach
1 carrot, grated
2 - 3 roasted red pepper strips ( freshly made or from jar )
splash of balsamic vinegar or a light balsamic vinaigrette
1. Spread the tortilla with the chevre. Place the spinach, carrot, roasted red peppers on top. Splash with balsamic vinegar. Wrap up and enjoy!
It's so good to rediscover old favorites like this one. And for 4 points plus, it makes a great meatless wrap for very few points! I think I will be enjoying this one quite a bit this spring! Do you have any "go to" recipes that you used to make all the time, but then for some reason just stopped making them?
