To Spinach Turkey Pinwheels

This past Sunday I made these pinwheels for a potluck I attended. Since I left with only 1 pinwheel left, I’d say they were a crowd pleaser.

Now I know that today is Pi Day but I had a ridiculously long day and with beautiful weather outside, turning on the oven seemed like the worst idea ever. Not to mention it is already toasty in my apartment and extra heat is definitely not needed.

They were pretty easy to make and are a nice spring food. We’ve been having an absurdly warm March – 75 degrees today! The warm weather sure does bring out the best in everyone and I don’t think I’ve ever seen my college quad as packed as it has been this week! I finally got to lay down and chill on the quad for a good half hour today since a class let out early. I soaked it all up!

Ingredients:

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

3 oz. feta cheese

1/4 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

cucumber, thinly sliced

spinach

red pepper, chopped

deli turkey meat

6 multi-grain tortilla wraps

Directions:

Mix the cream cheese, feta and spices into a creamy spread.

Spread an even, thin layer on each of the wraps.

Cover the wrap with spinach and deli meat (omit on a few wraps for a veggie option).

In a row near an end of the wrap lay the cucumbers down follo

wed by the red pepper.

Tightly roll together and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.

Cut the end off of the wraps and then slice in to 6-8 sections depending on desired thickness.

Plate and serve!

note: you could also leave these full and eat as wraps – what I did Monday night for a friend and I to accompany our guilty pleasure watching of The Bachelor Finale – typical female, I know (:

Cheers to quick and easy crowd-pleasing potluck dishes

A.L.T. Wrap (Alternative & Delcious)

Wraps could quite possibly be one of the best inventions. They are perfect pretty much anytime of the day and the possibilities of ingredient combos are endless.

I am not a big fan of bacon (shocker I know – most people love it) but it just doesn’t do much for me. And no I am not big on breakfast sausage either – not my thing – I never crave it and don’t think I ever will.

My low cravings for bacon and a veggie alternative led me in the direction of the A.L.T. wrap – Avocado, Lettuce and Tomato and for times when you don’t have lettuce, spinach works great too (actually this one is with spinach – our secret).

Super simple to make up and leaves you satisfied.

Ingredients:

Whole Grain Wrap

Avocado Slices (I used half of a small avocado)

Handful or two or Lettuce or Spinach

Tomato, sliced – (I used half of a Roma tomato)

1 Tbsp. Hummus

Paprika

Directions:

Spread the hummus, top with the A.L.T. and sprinkle with Paprika. Wrap it up, cut it in half and enjoy.

Cheers to simplicity
