You guys know how crazy I am about my veggies. I constantly look for new ways, recipes and dishes containing all that green and fresh goodness. Today, I have yet another delicious and healthy lunch idea for you: veggie wrap with avocado, lime and cilantro sauce.
When it comes to cooking, I do a hell lot of “guesstimating”. When I was making the avocado sauce for this wrap, I pretty much “guesstimated” all the ingredients. One whole avocado, a handful of fresh cilantro, few juiced limes, salt, pepper and some red chili flakes. I blended everything together with an immersion blender, added a bit of water for a nice and creamy consistency, then decided to add some more cilantro and lime juice. Everyone’s taste buds are different, I, for example, like my food to have some kick to it (thus the chili flakes), but if you’re not a “spicy” person, you can skip the chili flakes and your sauce will still have a whole lot of flavor.
Avocado, lime and cilantro sauce
1 whole, ripe avocado
1/4 cup of water
2 small limes, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of chili flakes
Blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor or with an immersion blender.
For the wraps, I used flour tortillas (my store was out of whole wheat tortillas, which is what I typically would go for, love the spinach ones as well!), butter lettuce, red leaf lettuce, shredded carrots, chopped red onion, red & yellow bell pepper-chopped, chives, chopped cilantro, tomato and feta cheese. I spread some of the avocado sauce on each tortilla, topped it with two leaves of butter and read leaf lettuce and finished off with veggies and feta cheese with more of the avocado sauce on top. Fold the wrap as you would fold a burrito.
I like to use spicy humus as a dipping sauce for my wraps. To give it a lighter consistency, I just take some store-bought hummus and add a bit of water to it. Alternatively, you can use the left over avocado sauce for dipping (or better yet, make a double batch ;) ).
