Finally I have a great recipe to share with you using those awesome Paleo Wraps I got a few weeks ago! Let me start by saying, I am so glad I bought them! They are incredible! I thought they would be inflexible and break, or even just taste really nasty, but I was so wrong! O Julian's bakery is my new best friend! The wraps are totally flexible and when you add something hot to it, the wrap basically "melts" on to the filling and creates the perfect burrito! It even stays closed when you wrap the baby up! I was worried about this after many failed sushi rolling attempts.
The wraps are made out of 3 simple ingredients which as all coconut! Coconut meat, coconut water, and unrefined virgin coconut oil! They are organic, gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, salt-free, dairy-free, paleo, sugar-free, vegan, low-carb, raw, soy-free, and yea, basically amazing! You know, I should have posted this for Cinco de Mayo, but I didn't. Burritos are Mexican right? Well, I am always late with this stuff anyway, what's new! So for the filling of my burrito I used lentils (not paleo, haha! I ruined it), nooch, tomato paste, and sourkrout! Crazy combo that tasted so amazing. The slight coconut taste of the wrap even worked well with it giving it a slightly sweet touch. Perfection!
Lentil Paleo Wrap Burrito
Ingredients: (serves 1)
+ 1 Paleo Wrap
+ ¼ Cup Green Lentils
+ 2 TB Nutritional Yeast
+ 1 TB Tomato Paste
+ ¼ Tsp Onion Powder
+ ½ Tsp Smoked Paprika
+ ½ Tsp Turmeric
+ 3 TB Sourkrout
+ In a small sauce pot, bring cook your lentils according to directions. When they are done, add in the nooch, tomato paste, and spices. Stir to combine.
+ Lay out your paleo wrap on a plate and spoon on the lentil mixture on one half of the wrap. Then place your sourkrout on top of the lentil mixture.
+ Now roll the wrap up and make a burrito! It will stick together, just place the seam side down for a minute and let it warm up.
I served my delicious wrap with a side of baked cinnamon Okinawan Sweet Potato Chips! (And some Nomato!) Yum, yum, in my tum. Haha yes I just said that 😉 But hold on I have some important Gluten-Free Challenge info for you too! Writing up this post, I thought about Chipotle. And then I though about how people think they can get safe gluten-free food there if they choose a burrito bowl or corn tortilla. Well WRONG! I came across this article a few weeks ago and it is so true. Yes, cross-contamination is just blinking with big bright letters all over that place. That also got me thinking about all the hidden sources of gluten people might over look when they are new to being gluten-free. So I complied a short list of some of the common food and ingredients that can contain gluten. They might not contain gluten, but most commonly they do unless otherwise stated. So please, always, always read those labels kids!
So play-dough. I used to lick that stuff as a kid! Who hasn't tasted play-dough, right? Please tell me I am right! It was so salty...and contained gluten. Better watch out! You can make your own though, so no worries!
So tell me:
+ What is your favorite burrito filling? Something traditional or something crazy?
+ Did you ever eat play-dough as a kid...or at least taste it? I mean come on, they even made play sets that would mimic food making. That is just asking for kids to eat the stuff! Thank god they say it is non-toxic 😉
