Sun Dried Tomato Protein Tortilla Crepes
Tortilla…Crepes… In a way, they straddle the border between the two, no? They can even be called wraps I reckon… Whatever you choose to call them though, here are the ingredients you need to make them:
1 cup egg whites
1/8 cup psyllium husks
1/8 cup sun dried tomatoes (or a couple of tablespoons sundried tomato paste)
1. Blend the above together. You will notice that the mixture will be gooey and kind of strange but that’s OK.
2. Get your pan SUPER hot and make sure it’s properly nonsticked (i.e. butter/oil it up or use a crepe nonstick pan).
3. Grab some of the mixture with a spoon and place it on the the center of the hot pan, spreading it around the pan with your spoon so it’s all as flat as possible (you basically want the mixture to be thin and cooking evenly so spread it quickly)
4. Flip it
Macros per tortilla:
15g carbs (out of which 8g is fiber!)
The above mixture yields 3 pretty big tortillas which you can then fill with whatever or even use to dip into stuff (I sometimes like to roll them up and dip them into egg yolk mmmm). Cool, no? I make these all the time. In fact, I am pretty sure my blog has a bunch of variations of the same basic recipe. They’re just so great because they’re pretty much PURE protein (and fiber) and you can do so many things with them! For example, you can stuff them with chicken and avocado, mmmm, or even just filled with hummus, mmmmm! Or leave out the sundried tomato, add some cinnamon instead and stuff them with chocolate (calling them crepes if you do). Endless high protein, low cal, high fiber, and definitely high ‘yum’ possibilities ;-)
