The Amazing Veggie Wrap

~Simple, Quick, Versatile, Delicious!~

I thought this was sort of a cheat - it's not complex, in fact it is ridiculously fast, and easy, but I thought that I just had to share with you one of my favorite lunch ideas. It is free from gluten, dairy, egg, corn, soy and animal products. It is versatile: add or subtract veggies to get exactly what you want. It's really healthy: gluten free wraps average only 130 calories each, compared to 'regular' wraps at almost 200 each, plus you are getting at least 2 servings of veggies (I always try to stuff mine as full as possible, with the result that I need a fork to pick up the overflow)! Add cheese (or a substitute) for extra protein, add sprouts, toasted sesame seeds, taziki sauce, sliced meat/substitute or tuna, you name it, the options are endless! Here are my favourite ingredients:

The Amazing Veggie Wrap(s)

2 Gluten Free Tortillas
Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
Mustard, to taste
1 Stalk Celery, cut in half
1 Carrot, Peeled and cut in half
2 slices of Tomato, cut in half
1 Mushroom, sliced
2-3 slices of Onion
2-4 Slices of Cheese/Substitute
2 Romaine Lettuce Leaves
Pickles, as garnish

With wraps at room temperature, arrange ingredients evenly in center of the wraps, topping with pepper and mustard. Roll up, and serve with pickles on the side. Enjoy!!
