The Spinach Wrap
Updated: Aug 9, 2019
Forget about food supplements or multivitamin tablets, eat your greens! They’re packed with antioxidants, minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese), dietary fibre, and nutrients such as Vitamins A, C, E and K (especially found leafy greens such as kale, spinach or lettuce).
The Spinach wrap is a cool and easy alternative to a regular wrap or even bread. You can see from the picture that I made it a little thick (it’s more of a pancake really), but you can make them thinner and smaller if you want to.
With this recipe, you’ll make 2 thick wraps and about 4 thinner ones. And for the record, it’s also full of protein thanks to the egg white (11 gr / egg white)!
Egg white, 2
Spinach, a big handful (the greener the better)
Buckwheat flour, 1 tablespoon (you could also use spelt flour)
Water, 1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth.
Heat some olive oil or coconut oil in a pan, and add a small ladle of the mixture. Cook for a few minutes until it gets a bit brown. Flip it over and do the same on the other side.
You can of course stuff it with whatever you like!
