First, slice some veggies. I used about one third of an avocado, four slices of an organic tomato, and a few thin slices of cucumber. Since I am making just one wrap, I only used a third of the avocado. Avocado can oxidize easily, so if you have some leftovers, take care when wrapping it up. I put the two avocado halves together, with the pit still in, and wrapped it tightly with plastic wrap. The pit helps prevent it from oxidizing and turning an ugly, brown color. You can use this trick when making guacamole, as well. If you are making it in advance, or letting it sit out for a while, just plop in an avocado pit and it'll prevent it from turning brown.
I'll use the rest of my avocado in wraps later this week. Or maybe a salad ;)
Lovely Veggie Wrap
- 1 multi-grain tortilla (or whatever flavor you like)
- 4 tomato slices
- 4 cucumber slices
- 1/3 avocado, sliced
- small handful spinach
- small handful sprouts
Place ingredients in the middle of the tortilla and wrap up like a burrito. Cut in half and serve, or keep it whole to take on the go.
