THIS is an egg white lavash burrito. Wrap? Wrap sounds healthier, but burrito sounds yummier. I assure you this is both… healthy and yummy! But maybe since it’s a lavash wrap… I’ll call it a wrap….. Not to be confused with “that’s a wrap.”…..I’m not done… don’t go yet! Oh my gosh make this paragraph stop.
(Macros for this whole wrap = 34c 8f 38p and 349 calories.)
So I made this after seeing an egg white crunch wrap by @iheartmacros. I pulled together everything I had that made some sense together to create this number with feta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, some sautéed veggies… and garlic (duh). Honestly, it was everything I hoped it would be. And my feelings and hopes about food are strong. You might already know that.
Generally I want my veggies in their LARGEST form, raw and crunchy and voluminous. But some days just call for a warm soft, cheesy, savory, HEAVY burrito! Like one you need to hold on to with both hands. (Unless you like to live on the edge as a one-handed burrito-balancing photographer.)
This is giving me anxiety just looking at it now. How easily I could have lost some of that delicious filling.. I’d have scooped it right up off the floor and put it back in. I’m just gonna put that out there.
For me, burritos are one of those foods that when a craving hits, it hits hard. And pre-macros, I would rarely give in. It seemed so indulgent.. just the size alone. So I would have probably eaten the same amount of calories or more in a salad. But now I know exactly where it’s worth it to me to spend my carbs and fat… and how to be smart about lightening things up. Of course with the help of the low carb Joseph’s Lavash wrap, this rings in lighter than most salads. Knowledge is power. So are big burritos. Or wraps. Dangit… whatever.
I didn’t want it shaped like a crunch wrap this particular time (seemed like I could make it bigger this way) but I still cooked it in the pan after. Seals it up and repairs the cracks that want to happen when you stuff it this full. AN ABSOLUTE MUST. The only way to lavash.
Go crispy or go home.
Egg White Wrap with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Feta, and Arugula
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/3 cup chopped tomates (50g)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion (40g)
- 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper (40g)
- 1 cup arugula or spinach (25g)
- 1 slice ham I use “healthy ham” from trader Joes that has 0 fat- ridiculous name I know!
- 1/2 cup egg whites (120g)
- 1 Tbsp. reduced fat feta cheese (14g)
- 2 tsp. fat free cheddar/mozzarella blend or other light cheese – this would also be good with the pepper jack laughing cow wedge I bet. (10g)
- 1/2 Tbsp. sun dried tomatoes (7g) dry packed not jarred in oil- I get mine from Trader Joes
- 1/4 small avocado (20g)
- 2 tsp. fat-free sour cream mixed with Sriracha (10g) optional but I like a million layers of flavor!
- 1 whole Joseph’s Lavash wrap
- Spray a pan with cooking spray and add a clove of garlic (I use the frozen Dorot cube of course…. lazy)
- Add all your chopped veggies and sauté for a couple of minutes until soft with a good sprinkling of kosher salt. Add chopped ham.
- Add arugula and let cook and wilt for another minute
- Pour egg whites over and more salt and pepper and scramble… it’ll cook super fast. Turn it off and add feta and other light cheese if using. Cover and let melt.
- Lay out your lavash and put your big egg scramble down the middle. Top with avocado, sundried tomates, and sriracha sour cream.
- GENTLY roll like a burrito trying not to let it rip. If it starts to, just baby it because now you’re gonna grill the whole thing in your hot pan with cooking spray and THIS CURES IT! I think the only way to eat these wraps is toasted up in some form. Gives it a whole new life. Mine started to rip from the juicy eggs and I gently put that side down and it sealed it shut nice and brown and crispy. Do the same for the other side and it helps seal the seam of the burrito. Now it’ll even survive long enough for you to take pictures of it and THEN eat it.
- I found my fat free cheese at Stater Brothers but I know Sprouts has a block of fat free cheddar. It’s certainly not like normal cheese, but mixed in to something like this that’s warm it can totally work. Adds some texture and flavor and ONLY protein.
- Obviously you can use whatever veggies, cheese, and meat you have and love. I think the best things about this were those sautéed veggies and the feta. More greens and a little more garlic couldn’t hurt if you love garlic like me.
