IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A WRAP TO hold you tight (thank you Nelly Furtado’s ‘Promiscuous’ lyrics), you have come to the right place. Last night, I really wanted a dinner that will bring me energy and lots of nutrients. It has been a rather active and slightly exhausting week and by the time it was Saturday I could feel my body needing TLC in shape of easy food and good rest. I strolled through the supermarket and chose my most favorite healthy ingredients: sweet potato, broccoli, avocado and corn – then realised these would make an amazing wrap combined with delicious feta cheese! The result was amazing.
Summer Wraps with
Feta, Broccoli & Sweet Potato
Serves 2. Prep time: 30 minutes.
Sweet potato, 2 small (or 1 large)
Broccoli, 1 small (or 1/2 large)
Feta cheese, 50g (skip if neccessary)
Corn, jarred or freshly cooked, 100g
Tortillas for wraps, 4 pieces (use gluten-free if needed)
Optional sauces: hummus and sambal come warmly recommended if you are a sauce lover!
Utensils: pan, sieve, pan lid, boiling water
1. WASH AND PEEL sweet potato. Cut in thin slices (about 0.5 cm thin). Place in a pan with boiling water and boil for about 20 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft.
2. WASH BROCCOLI AND CUT INTO PIECES. Place pieces on a sieve, then place atop of pan with boiling water -> this will steam your broccoli to perfection. Cover the sieve with a lid (from the pan) and in about 15 minutes the broccoli will be soft (but not mushy) and done.
3. WHILE THE SWEET POTATO IS COOKING and broccoli steaming, use the time to cut avocado in slices and feta cheese in squares. Rinse the corn if neccessary. Optional: warm up the wraps in a softly heated oven (about 100 C) for 10 minutes.
4. DRAIN SWEET POTATO and serve all ingredients. Now everyone can build their own wrap!
ALTERNATIVELY, YOU CAN MASH SWEET POTATO & AVOCADO TOGETHER for a ‘Sweet potato & Avocado’ spread, then top of the wrap with broccoli, cheese and corn. 😀
