Chicken, Yogurt, Hummus, Basil & Chilli Superveg Protein Wraps

I’m a big fan of small-amount-of-ingredient-type recipes, not because they take less time to write (and consequently calculate in the context of their kcals and macros), but because they’re friendlier to the desire to simplify, simplify, simplify. I don’t know about you, but I am violently turned off by recipes accompanied by loohohoong lists of ingredients. They have their place, of course (as some of the world’s greatest dishes demand that one gather a wide array of ingredients, faithfully obey their Creator, and stir the works with Grandma’s wooden spoon against a backdrop of Peace and Hungry Anticipation) but in the context of every day cooking? I gravitate towards simplicity. Sooooooo, here’s a recipe to celebrate this ;-)

Ingredients:

For the wraps:
1/8 cup superveg powder (or a plain unflavored protein powder, preferably a veggie one)
1/8 cup psyllium husks
1/2 cup liquid egg whites

For the toppings:
1 cooked chicken breast
Whole fat Total Greek yogurt
Hummus
Green chili powder
Red chili powder
Paprika
Herbamere (this stuff, it’s un-be-lie-va-ble!)
Fresh Basil

Directions:

1. Mix wrap ingredients together and pan fry in a nonstick pan with some coconut oil.

2. Top/fill the wraps with the topping ingredients in however fashion you like.

Macros per Serving (out of 1) W/O toppings:

168kcals
13.8g protein
26g carbs (13g of which are just fiber!)
1.6g fat

Result? BOOM!!! Loved it! It was like a bready wrap, kind of like a protein gyro? kind of like a pita wrap. The chicken topping was stupendous too. Oy. Try it.  Full fat Greek yogurt is amazing! Full of live probiotic cultures and the flavor, THE FLAVOR! Oh la la, it’s a sensation, especially with spiciness and chicken and hummus and mmmm
