Picnic Wrap

Few things are better than a well made spinach salad, especially one loaded with chicken, sweet strawberries, pecans, and goat cheese. This flatbread wrap has that in spades, plus it’s easy to eat almost anywhere, from car seats to checkered blankets.

Is it a salad? Is it a sandwich? The perfect picnic food may, in fact, be somewhere in-between, thanks to flatbread. Our video gets to the heart of the matter:

Roasted Spring Veggie Wrap

When I was little, my grandmother would make a Schaum torte in the spring, almost always for Easter, because in those days spring was the only time you could get fresh strawberries. For those of you who are curious, Schaum torte is a very light, ethereal cake made with meringue, whipped cream, and fresh sliced strawberries. It’s pure heaven to eat, so it was always gobbled up as soon as it was served, without any leftovers. Maybe that’s why I revere the cake so much, because it was so short-lived and never lasted until the next day.

Anyways, thanks to technology, almost every fruit or vegetable can be found at any time of the year, for better or for worse. Those strawberries you see in January? Well, they’re usually not very good. More white than red, they don’t even have a flavor, am I right? And baby carrots in the bag? Ugh. Those aren’t “baby,” they’re just enormous carrots filed down to size in a big machine. Who wants that? But in the spring, carrots are glorious. Most produce just tastes better when it’s eaten in season.

Being the food lover that I am, to me spring also means spring vegetables: tender greens and asparagus, baby carrots, peas. Usually at this point in the year, I don’t ever care to see another potato or brussel sprout ever again, bacon or no. I’m ready for different flavors and textures, that’s all. I know that come winter, brussel sprouts will return to my menu’s rotation, but for now, I’m dreaming of salad greens, some goat cheese, and tender roasted vegetables. This flatbread has all those things and more: a crunch that comes from toasted sliced almonds for some extra texture and protein. Getting all your veggies in is easy with this delicious recipe! And at 7 WW® SmartPoints® value per serving, it’s a recipe that’s easy to make part of your weekly menu!

Butternut Squash and Kale Flatbread

Back when vegetarians had it hard, I was a vegetarian for a couple years. My go to meal was red sauce on spaghetti and a side of steamed broccoli. I was in college, and just learning to cook, and the Moosewood Cookbook was my only reference on hand for plant based anything. This was before the internets, which has changed the world so drastically in terms of diet and how people eat and prepare meals.

Squash and kale make a great pair in this flatbread pizza, but like all hearty vegetables, they’re even better with a smooth, creamy goat cheese.

Butternut squash is so delicious, and easy to cut up and roast into caramelized cubes of sweet vegetable candy so you can add it to salads, flatbread wraps, grain bowls, and pizzas. One squash goes a long way, so plan your menus accordingly!

I promise you won’t even miss the meat in this recipe, and neither will the confirmed meat-eaters in your life. The kale adds some crunch and texture, (not to mention tons of fiber, vitamins, and minerals) the goat cheese is pure pleasure, and the lemon juice brightens everything up. And the pepitas? A little nutty protein never hurt anybody.

Plant based meals have come a long way since spaghetti sauce and steamed broccoli. I hope you love this flatbread as much as I do!

Herbed Omelet Wrap

Need a way to incorporate all those fresh, green summer herbs growing around you everywhere in the garden? Summer is the time to take advantage of all the wonderful flavor herbs can add to your favorite recipes, so grab some scissors and snip, snip, snip some savory greens to add to any meal you make.

If you have a window, you have space to grow even the smallest of kitchen herb gardens right outside on the window sill or ledge. Herbs like to grow packed together, and they all grow pretty harmoniously with one another, so all you have to do is pick your favorites and throw them in some good quality soil. They’ll do the rest and you’ll get to reap the rewards!

Last year, before I had a garden space, I grew all my herbs in window boxes and I loved being able to reach through my window for lemon thyme or fresh oregano when inspiration struck. Now that I have a little more garden space, I’ve added some flowers for the bees, and there’s a bit more balance to things.

Mostly, I’d much prefer to grow things to eat than flowers, but I usually add some color to my window boxes in the way of something effortless and self-maintaining like petunias. I always sneak in some nasturtiums (the flowers and the leaves are edible) and fresh basil in with everything so I can have something edible, too.

Fresh herbs at your beck and call makes me feel so lucky! I’m adding mint leaves to my ice water, fresh basil to my flatbread pizzas, and cilantro to my wraps. This flatbread recipe takes a classic two egg omelet, a smattering of goat cheese, and all the fresh herbs you like, and rolls it up into an easy to eat, delicious whole grain flatbread that you can take with you as a special, anything-but-ordinary breakfast. Feel free to use any herbs you like, get creative!
