The forty-eighth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Spicy Egg and Avocado Wrap, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book So Easy, on page 31. The theme for this week was chosen by me: Indy 500: What's in Your Lunchbox?
Ingredient list: eggs, lettuce, whole wheat bread wraps, avocado, tomato, cucumber, Thai chili sauce, salt, and pepper.
This week is all about the Indianapolis 500 Race here in Indianapolis and this is a special year because it marks the 100th running of the Indy 500. Each year hundreds of parties and gatherings are planned around the Indy 500. And there are hundreds of ideas for filling your lunchbox or picnic basket or cooler on Race Day, everything from the extravagant gourmet to the humble pb&j sandwich, fruit, and cookies.
Almost everyone has an idea or a tradition of what they want in their lunchbox on Race Day. For me, it's simple, something not too heavy or greasy, something that has heft to it so you aren't looking for additional food that isn't on the healthier side, but not too much as it's usually hot and humid outside and you definitely don't want a hot and heavy lunchbox. This wrap is perfect as it doesn't need special refrigeration as long as you eat it in a timely manner, it's portable, it's not messy, and it's full of healthy ingredients that are good for you. Perfect for a Race Day Lunchbox. And, if you aren't going to the race, it's perfect for lunch anytime. You can change up the ingredients in countless ways but I am very happy with Ellie's version just as it is. Definitely a repeat.
These are my favorite wraps, they come in different "flavors" and make it very easy to roll up a wrap without it cracking or getting out of hand with sloppiness as they are oval in shape, not round. Just in case you wanted to know and all.
