MJ Monday: MJ Meals-Mediterranean Turkey Wraps

These wraps became a summertime staple for us last year. I keep a batch in the refrigerator nearly every week. They make a quick and easy lunch on the run. My husband will grab one before he heads out to a baseball game. I packed them when we went to our film festival last year, making for an easy, inexpensive lunch one of the days.

Here are the ingredients:
1/2 c. softened cream cheese
1/2 c. softened feta
1/4 c. Kalamata olive spread
a few generous dashes of onion powder
fresh chives
fresh oregano
spinach
8″ tortillas
good sliced turkey from the deli (not prepackaged national brand)

 

Mix together the room temperature cream cheese, feta (try to get out as many lumps as you can), Kalamata olive spread, onion power, snipped chives, chopped fresh oregano. (I love going to my garden and plucking the herbs I need).

 

 

Spread the mixture over all of a tortilla

Place a slice of turkey on one half of the tortilla.

Cover the turkey with spinach leaves

Starting with the turkey-spinach side, roll the tortilla as tightly as you can.

Wrap each rolled tortilla tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours before eating.

They’ll last for a week in the fridge. So easy to grab and go.

The recipe makes as many wraps as it makes. It depends on how thick or thin you spread the cheese/olive/herb mixture. I usually get between five and seven wraps per batch. If you use larger tortillas, your yield will be less.

Enjoy!

    These I would try substituting chopped black olives for the kalamata olive spread, no feta, too much sodium for this old girl, everything else sounds delicious. One could substitute almost any good deli meat for the turkey. I might even use spinach or sundried tomato wraps. Thinking it might well also make a delightful bagel sandwich as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

      I think my next experiment will be with hummus instead of the cream cheese mixture and some roasted red peppers with the spinach and turkey.
