Crunchy Veggie Wrap

Nummy.

Other Options: Try arugula instead of spinach. Add any type of bean, grated zucchini, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, onions, mushrooms and/or chopped cucumbers.

*Note: As an alternative to the mayonnaise lime mixture, use a prepared hummus, yogurt-cucumber dip, low fat flavored cream cheese, salsa, baba ganoush, or mustard.

Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise*
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp grated lime peel
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, peeled, pitted and cut into slices
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into strips

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and lime peel. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds on high to make it easier for you to roll them.
  • Spread each tortilla evenly with the mayonnaise mixture. Arrange the spinach leaves on top of each tortilla, then the avocado slices, bell pepper and carrots.
  • Roll the tortillas up tightly. Place the seam sides down on the serving plates.
