My friend Becky was joining me for lunch yesterday and with only a quick fifteen minutes to relax I told her I would bring our lunches. The City of Austin is encouraging us to cut plastic from our lives, so in lieu of water bottles, I filled 2 small mason jars with filtered water for our beverage. Classy. In a hurry, I slapped together the strangest combination of ingredients and produced a most delicious Kale, hummus and roast beef egg roll wrap. OK, it doesn’t sound great, but what joy it brought me when I took my first bite. Turns out Becky couldn’t make it, so I doubled down on this delightful surprise with little worry of consuming too many calories. Yum! here’s what I did:
Lay kale leaf flat tearing off stem
Place generous dollop of roasted garlic hummus in the center
4-5 slices of roast beef
2 slices of tomato
2 slices of hot pepper jack cheddar
1 tsp. of horseradish (optional)
Wrap contents in wax paper tightly and weight a heavy book or marble if you have it for just a minute or two.
Place contents in egg roll wrap (wheat)and brown slightly in pan with just a drop of vegetable oil. Substitue any meat, vegetable, evoo, or spring roll wrap (rice) would do nicely also.

Trish, that sounds delicious! I just made a bunch of hummus yesterday, so now I’m inspired to wrap it up with a bunch of stuff and see how it turns out!
Thanks for joining me at Food on Fridays with this fun story of how your quick meal turned into a yummy surprise!
By the way, we’re using less and less plastic in our house, and I’ve been recycling jars, too, for storage. My “Bonne Maman” jams are overpriced when I buy them at the store, but I love that size for fridge storage of leftovers. They seem to be the perfect size AND the wide mouth makes it easy to slip stuff inside.

Great wrap creation Trish! Another way to add more kale to your diet. Kale chips- wash, remove ribs, cut in wide strips, salt and pepper or other seasoning ,then bake at 250 deg. for 30 minutes.
