Craving a cheese steak, but don’t want the guilt? Try a cheese steak wrap. Again, one of my favorite wraps makes a lunch appearance. Flatout Light. These 90 calorie protein and fiber rich wraps make any “sandwich” healthier. For my cheese steak wrap I used Gardein Beefless Tips, vegan mozzarella, and some great veggies for an added bonus. Here is the simple recipe.
“Cheese” “Steak” Wrap (makes 1 wrap)
- 1 Flat Out Light Wrap
- 3/4 cup Gardein Beefless Tips
- 1 Slice Vegan Mozzarella
- 1/4 cup frozen or fresh peppers, diced
- 1/4 cup onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 tsp. vegan worchestire sauce
- 1 tsp. ketchup
- 1/4 cup tomato, sliced
- 1/2 cup spring mix
- 1 tsp. vegan mayo
- 1/4 tsp. hot pepper spread (optional)
Preheat a skillet, spray with olive oil cooking spray. Once the skillet is hot, turn heat to medium and add the onions, cook 2 minutes, add the pepper, cook two minutes, then add the mushrooms. While the vegetables are cooking, defrost the Gardein Beefless Tips in the microwave for 30 seconds. This allows you to chop them up before adding to the skillet. Once all veggies are about cooked, push them to the side in the skillet, spray the open area with cooking spray, add chopped up Gardein. Cook the Gardein until it is heated through and begins to brown. Once it is begging to caramelize, add a 1/2 tsp. of vegan worchestire sauce to just the Gardein. Stir around to coat. Then, mix all the veggies and “steak” together. Turn off heat, break up 1 sliced of vegan mozzarella and place to top of mixture. Put a lid on the skillet to allow cheese to melt.
Place wrap on plate, spread vegan mayo all around, spread on crushed hot peppers, if using. Cover the wrap with spring mix all over. Then sprinkle on tomatoes, all around. Next, add all contents of your skillet, evenly spread on wrap, leaving 1 inch at end on one side just with spring mix.
Drizzle ketchup throughout wrap. Let cool one minute. Then, Roll up wrap tight, like a jelly roll, toward the end that has the one inch of spring mix exposed. Cut in half and serve!
Believe it or not, this wrap, with all the fixings is only 350 calories! Next time someone asks you, “where do you get your protein, iron or calcium”, refer them to this recipe!
