Football (soccer) is now in full swing again, with our youngest son Caelan having training 3 nights a week and Saturday morning too! But I was having one of those days on Thursday, where I wasn’t at all organised and the day just got away from me. Then I remembered mid afternoon…. it was football training! I had to whip up something really quick before he went.
I really like the Syndian range of products, because they do not use any additives, supplements, enhancers, emulsifiers, flavourings, binders, preservatives colouring or boosters. On top of that, all of their products are gluten free and vegan. Plus, most Coles, Woolworths and IGA supermarkets stock their products too. Here is a link if you would like to find out more information about where to find the nearest stockist in your State. I had a pack of their Vegie & Lentil Burgers in the freezer, so all I had to do was make wraps and chop up some salad.
Now, about the wraps I made. I recently found this wonderful new recipe, by Petra at Nutrition Refined, and this is one of the best wrap recipes I’ve found. They are easy to make, extremely pliable when folded and really tasty. I did make some slight changes to Petra’s original recipe though, as I used my spice grinder to grind the psyllium husks into a fine powder. I also lessened the salt by ½ a teaspoon, then added a ¼ teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder, for a subtle savoury flavour.
Wraps (I used this recipe)
1 pack of vegie & lentil burgers
A selection of your favourite salads
Sauce or condiment of your choice
First, make your wraps. Once the wraps are done, then make a start on chopping the salad.
Next, follow the cooking instructions on the back of the box of the Vegie & Lentil Burgers.
Then it’s just a matter of simply assembling the wrap.
On a chopping board cut the lentil burger into thirds, as you don’t want to over fill the wrap. I also squash it down a little bit too, so that it’s not so thick. That way, it’s easier to fit in the salad and wrap it all up.
You can also add a sauce or condiment of your choice, by placing some down the middle of the wrap, stopping a few centimetres from the bottom so it doesn’t spill out!
I place 2 pieces of the lentil burger on top of the sauce and add the salad. Then just fold the wrap around your filling and you’re done!
This meal is so quick, easy and very tasty.
