As the weather begins to get warmer, I find myself craving sandwiches more often. This is one of my favorites.
Follow me for the recipe…
Layer 1: Whole Wheat Roll Up
I find these at Costco in the bread section. At 110 calories and 3PP, they are nutritious, high in protein (10g) and – most importantly – very tasty.
Layer 2: Super Hummus
Spread evenly on the bread.
Layer 3: Black Beans
Microwave the black beans for about 20 to 30 seconds, then mush them with a fork. It’s important to smash the black beans before loading them on the bread, otherwise they have a tendency to roll out of the sandwich. Spread evenly on the bread.
Layer 4: Red Pepper
Sweet red pepper delivers extra flavor and crunch to this sandwich. Sprinkle about 1/8th to ¼ cup over the bread.
Layer 5: Red Cabbage
Red cabbage has superior crunchability. Sprinkle about 1/8th cup over the bread.
Layer 6: Shredded Carrots
As with the pepper and the cabbage, carrots add bulk, flavor and crunch to this sandwich.
Layer 7: Baby Spinach
Sprinkle leaves in an even layer over the bread. So tasty and good for you.
Roll, Wrap and Go!
Now roll up and enjoy! I tend to wrap this in plastic wrap then peel back the plastic to reveal each bite, keeping the yummy goodness inside the roll. I’ll make five of these at a time and put them in the fridge, then grab one each day to toss in my lunchbox. I have it with sugar snap peas and crisp apple wedges for a very delicious and filling lunch.
The secret to rolling these is to first spread a large sheet of plastic wrap on your counter then gently lay the layered bread on the wrap. Working from one of the narrow ends of the rectangle, carefully roll up directly across to the other narrow end, stuffing wayward bits back in the sandwich as you go. Then TURN the rolled sandwich at a slight diagonal toward one of the corners of the plastic wrap and roll up on the diagonal to ensure you have enough plastic to secure each end. Your pretty roll looks like this:
