Leftover Lentil Wraps

Happy Tuesday guys! Recipe of the day is Leftover Lentil Wraps – simple and healthy wraps with peas, corn, tuna and red onion, there’s no way not to love these delicious and simple wraps!

Leftover Lentil Wraps

Apart from the lentils, there’s some peas, corn and tuna. Also, I’ve added some smoky harissa on mine but left the kids’ ones. And as the title says these wraps are actually made from leftovers, lentil soup leftovers in particular. What a great way to use up this soup! πŸ™‚ To be honest, I haven’t tried wraps with lentils so far but they’re simply delicious. Kids really enjoyed them too, well more in a bowl, than in a wrap but that has to do with their age and ability to actually eat a wrap. πŸ™‚

Leftover Lentil Wraps

When I say I used up a lentil soup I mean I drained carefully the lentils and other veggies that were in the soup. It’s really important to drain them well, otherwise the wraps will get soggy and not so yummy. πŸ™‚ I usually add some carrots and celery to the lentil soup so that was a bonus.

Leftover Lentil Soup

The whole mixture is quite tasty and can easily go for a healthy tuna salad as well. For that purpose, I added some chopped red onion. Tuna and red onion taste amazing, don’t you think? :-)The mixture is perfect to store it in the fridge for a few days. No matter how you decide to have it – lentil wrap or just a bowl, it is super tasty and nutritious and not to mention how simple to make. πŸ™‚ So next time when you make a lentil soup, save some and try these beauties. πŸ™‚

Here’s how to make the Leftover Lentil Wraps

Beef Breakfast Wraps

Happy Thursday! The recipe of the day is here – Beef Breakfast Wraps – so simple to make and so delicious to have!

Beef Breakfast Wraps

They’re one of those breakfast recipes that you can have them all day long – scrambled eggs, sweet red peppers, ripe avocado and beef. All that topped with lots of cheese and wrapped up. Believe me, you’re going to love these wraps.

I used shop bought cooked beef, which saved a lot of time. You can use whatever you’d like. You might have any leftovers or simply choose a small amount of cooked meat from your local shop.

I also added a tiny drop of sour cream to make the thing even juicier. I do love sour cream, I know it’s not the healthiest thing ever but the key is in moderation, I guess. πŸ™‚

For some reason,Β I’ve been making lots of wraps/burritos recently. Not only they’re our family favourite but they take a few minutes only (which make them mummy’s favourites too), if you’ve got all the ingredients prepped and cooked in advance. And the combinations you can try are numerous. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, fish, meat or simply vegetarian, there are so many delicious way to make these to your taste. So that’s a good reason, actually. πŸ™‚

I probably should try using some sweet and sour fillings. That would be nice, wouldn’t it. πŸ™‚ Like sweet and sour chicken with some veggies or rice. Nom, nom, nom..

The bottom line is, get your apron on and start cooking! πŸ™‚

Beef Breakfast Wraps

Oh, yes, I forgot to mention, there are some black olives too. I actually added the olives in the scramble eggs, I find the combination very yummy. πŸ™‚ But this is not necessary at all, so if for some reason you don’t fancy olives, just don’t add them. The eggs were cooked in advance so all I had to do was to make the wraps which took me 5 minutes. Seriously, I’m really good at wrapping these things. πŸ™‚

We actually couldn’t finish them all, which was quite surprising, just one of the wraps was left for lunch for the next day.

My kids actually unwrap everything and pick the bits and pieces they like. But as long as they have some food, this is fine by me. πŸ™‚

Needless to say, I had mine with lots of hot sauce. πŸ™‚ I simply can’t help it.
