Breakfast wraps are a great, healthy way to bring some variety to your morning meal. They involve surprisingly minimal preparation and the fantastic combination of ingredients can really help you to start the day in the best way possible! One of the many great things about my breakfast wraps is that you can make them right before you head out of the door and then enjoy them on your way to work!
As you will already know from visiting my blog before, kale is an absolute powerhouse of nutrition and I recommend getting lots of it into your diet! With these wraps you get a whole cup into your body before the day has even really begun! This little leaf is full of so many antioxidants, not to mention high amounts of vitamins A, C and K.
The addition of basil to this recipe compliments the existing flavour as well as providing an additional dose of goodness. This herb has quite a distinct aroma and contains beneficial amounts of vitamin K, manganese and magnesium! Growing basil at home for yourself is so easy to do and you can more than likely grab yourself a plant from your local supermarket with your weekly shop. This will mean that you always have fresh basil to hand, and also that your kitchen will be full of the delicious smell it is loved for.
To make this dish for two people you will need the following ingredients:
2 cups of fresh kale
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 small onion, diced
1 large tomato, sliced
1/2 a medium avocado, mashed
The juice of half a lemon
2 tablespoons of fresh basil
2 whole-wheat tortillas
The first step is to heat the coconut oil in a skillet and then fry the onion and tomato at a medium heat. While this is cooking you can take the tortillas and spread the mashed avocado over each one.
Once the onions have started to brown, remove the contents of the pan and spoon onto the tortillas. Add half of the lemon juice to each tortilla with the basil, and then place the kale on top. Fold the tortillas and serve – it's as simple as that!
