One of the biggest complaints I hear (and harbour myself) about eating wheat-free is that there aren’t many ways to “hold” the food. No bread, so sandwiches are out. No tortillas, so you can’t make a wrap. Sometimes I just end up with a big bowl of stuff, which is fine… but it’s nice to have something to transport the food from the plate to your mouth.
I stopped in a little local market and found this pack of 20 rice paper wraps for $1.99 and decided to test them out. So far… LOVE them! They are super easy to use once you get the hang of them, and they make for more portable snacks.
I made some sort of taco-like dish and it was delicious! Plus it probably cost about $10 to make and it lasted about 4 meals. Win win win.
- 1 rice paper wrap
- 1 can of corn
- 1 can of black beans
- small handfull of cilantro
- 1/2 pack of taco seasoning
- 1 cup rice
- shredded cheese
- 1 chicken breast
I could write out the recipe step-by-step, but it is so simple that it’s just not worth doing. Really you just bake chicken how you like it, slice it up, mix it with all the ingredients in a big bowl, and then put it in the rice wrap. I like to heat everything in the microwave before putting it in the wrap, and then I add the cheese on top.
I ended up with a ton of leftovers so I put them in the fridge and made a pot of rice and mixed it all up for lunches. Very easy and convenient! Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of everything in the bowl, but I did take a few of the wrap. And sadly they were done using my phone, so they are terrible quality, but the sentiment is there 🙂
Also, I recommend dipping these bad boys in Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Mmmm…
