Skinny Stuff It Veggie Wrap

When I was growing up my sister and I would get veggie wraps from a place called Stuff It.  They were incredible.  I remember texting her awhile back, asking for ideas for the blog and she challenged me with recreating the recipe.  Now let's get something straight.  We would get veggie wraps just because they tasted amazing, NOT because they were healthy.  A typical veggie sandwich from a deli has around 600 calories, 50 carbs, 30 grams of fat, and very little fiber.  Ouch.

We can totally do better than that.

I've made my version a couple of times, base on some of her suggestions.  It has never been exactly right, but close enough.  Last weekend I made a lighter version and it came out simply amazing. Mmmm I'm looking at the above picture literally drooling.  Yum.

 Here is what you need for about 2 very large, overstuffed wraps:

1/4 Red Onion, Sliced very very thin 
1/2 Cup of Bean Sprouts 
1/2 Cup of Alfalfa Sprouts 
1/2 Cup of Pre Packaged Broccoli Slaw 
1/2 Cup of Pre Packaged Sliced Red Cabbage 
1/4 Cup of Carrots, Freshly Shredded if Possible 
2 Slices of Jarlsberg Lite Swiss Cheese, Sliced Very Thin 
2 Mission Carb Balance Tortilla Wraps 
1/4 Cup of Light Hellman's Mayonnaise 
2 Tbs of Tamari 
1 Tbs of Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed 

Mix mayonnaise, tamari, and lemon juice together.  Add vegetables to dressing and toss well.  Line each tortilla with 1 slice of cheese.  Jarlsberg Swiss slices are rather large so one should work just fine.  Add a large scoop of the dressed veggies to the center and wrap together, using wax paper to hold everything in place.  The point is to have an overstuffed, decadent wrap of veggies.  You could easily make 3 smaller wraps out of this if you prefer. Enjoy. 

Each wrap has 6 Weight Watcher Points.  Here is the complete info: 

Wow.  About half the calories, half the carbs, and about a sixth of the amount of fat and ALL the flavor.  Yes.  We're on to something. 

Stay hungry!
