Introduction

A wrap is the perfect vehicle for adding a healthy dose of veggies. In this recipe, turkey gets coated in pesto and mixed with tomatoes, basil, and garlic before being wrapped up with some zucchini ribbons and Kalamata olives.

Wrap with vegetables and turkey

  • 1/4 cup hummus
  • 2 cups shredded romaine
  • 6 ounces turkey breast slices
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 5 large wheat tortillas

1/4 cup hummus

1/4 cup hummus

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dish made from chickpeas and tahini (a paste made from ground sesame seeds). Hummus can be served as a dip, sandwich spread or salad dressing. It’s high in protein and fiber which makes it great for you!

2 cups shredded romaine

2 cups shredded romaine

Shredded romaine is a salad ingredient and a leafy green that you can use to wrap your turkey rollups.

6 ounces turkey breast slices (about 1 cup)

Next, you’ll need to slice your turkey breast into thin slices. This can be done with a sharp knife or electric meat slicer. If using the latter, be sure to place the meat on a surface that will catch any juices that may leak out while slicing it. The size of each slice depends on your preference–the thinner they are, the faster they’ll cook through!

1 cup chopped bell pepper

1 cup chopped bell pepper

Chopped bell peppers are a great way to add color and texture to wraps. You can use any color you like, but I recommend using at least two or three different varieties for the best effect. The multicolored ones tend to be more expensive than the single-colored ones, but they’re also much prettier!

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)

Feta cheese is a soft, white brined cheese made from goat or sheep milk, or both. It’s shaped into a block and has a slightly granular texture.

5 large whole wheat tortillas (8-inch)

If you’re making wraps, use large whole wheat tortillas that are 8-inches in diameter. If you’re using smaller or larger tortillas, adjust the ingredients accordingly–but make sure they’ll fit!

If you want to use a different type of bread for your wrap (like pita bread), it’s fine to do so; just make sure the size is right for wrapping up your fillings without leaving too much extra space around them.

Cooking spray

You can buy cooking spray in a can, but it’s also easy to make your own by mixing oil and water. You can use butter or margarine instead of oil if you prefer that taste.

Wrap with vegetables and turkey

  • 1 cup cooked turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped vegetables, like carrots and bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise or light ranch dressing

Conclusion

You can also try other meats and vegetables in this wrap. You can use turkey, chicken or beef instead of the turkey breast slices. You can also use different kinds of bell peppers like green or red ones. I hope you enjoy making this recipe!
