A couple of months ago I saw Dr Michael Mosely’s idea of using what is essentially a very thin spread omelette base to use as a substitute for a grain based wrap.
Pretty cool if you need to avoid gluten (several of us). Or if you need to keep an eye on your carbohydrate intake (Me thanks to PCOS).
Except 1 single egg wasn’t really enough for a meal for my husband or I so, to make a more filling option that gives a decent vegetarian source of protein with your meal … this is how we make ours:
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 tsp hemp seeds
- 2 tsp nutritional yeast
- pinch flaked pink salt
- 1/2 tsp Italian style herbs, or 1 tsp fresh chopped thyme
- optional: small spray of olive oil
Whisk the eggs together, then add in all the other ingredients and whisk again until well combined and frothy.
If you’re not sure about how non-stick your frying pan is, then give it a little spray of olive oil and set to a medium heat.
Pour in the egg mix and swirl around the pan until it is evenly distributed over the whole base.
Allow to cook gently for about a minute, then test that the side of the egg are well cooked, slide a spatula underneath to the centre and then flip it over to briefly cook the other side.
Remove from heat and lay on plate. Eat warm or cold.
Treat it like a normal wheat based wrap – We fill ours with a variety of salad and it keeps us full of ages – plus … it’s really delicious!
You can make several in advance and store them in the fridge for a couple of days – lay a paper towel between each one for storage.
If Macros are important to you … are are the details for just the wrap – you will need to account for your own fillings:
