Healthy Lunches for Work: Mushroom & Cherry Tomato Wrap

Wraps are a great option whenever you are in a rush or simply lazy to cook. This week I needed something on the go, so I prepared an easy but incredibly delicious wrap. Here is what you are going to need:

  • wholemeal tortilla
  • laminated mushrooms
  • cherry tomatoes
  • mayonnaise
  • watercress, spinach, and rocket leaves
  • curry powder (optional)
  • garlic olive oil (or any other olive oil you like)

You can buy all these ingredients at Aldi’s store and I totally recommend you to do so. Ingredients, specially vegetables, are of great quality. Plus, you can find a variety of healthy food options in their stores. For instances, the mayonnaise I use is a great alternative and it only contains 10 calories per table spoon.

Preparation & How To

Make sure you wash the mushrooms, the tomatoes and your green leaves. You can do this while you warm up a pan. Cut your cherry tomatoes in halves and set them aside with your mushrooms.

Put the tortilla wrap in the pan and flip it several times, so it can get toasty in both sides. Remove it when it is good enough for you. Next put some olive oil in the pan and add the mushrooms and the cherry tomatoes. Mix them altogether so they can absorb the olive oil. If you like like spicy food, I recommend you to add a little bit of curry powder. If you do so, make sure you mix everything again.

While the mushrooms and tomatoes are cooking, you can now put a table spoon of mayonnaise on your wrap and spread it evenly. Then add a layer of green leaves.

By now your mushrooms and tomatoes are probably already done and you can turn the heat off. I like my food warm, so I add immediately the mixture to my wrap, but you can wait a few minutes and let it cool down, if you prefer. After adding a layer of mushrooms and tomatoes to your wrap, you can then fold it as you like most.
