Healthy Burritos

I’ve been thinking about sumthn that’s easy to make and rich in essesntial nutrients too. I finally zeroed in on this – a low-carb, high-protein, high-fiber snack/meal. Ideal for work/school lunches. Great for dieters & weight-watchers.


PrepTime 5mins – CookTime 10mins – Serves 2






4 low-carb high-fiber 60-calorie whole wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded/ chopped cooked chicken (optional)
1 cup cooked veggies – carrots/peas/capsicum/beans
1/2 cup grated low-fat cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped olives
1/2 cup chopped tofu
salt & pepper to taste
1 cup shredded lettuce
4 tbsp light mayonnaise/mustard
4 tbsp tomato-chili/ chili-garlic sauce
Cooking Instructions:
1. Spoon the sauces equally onto each tortilla.
2. Spoon on equal portions of the chicken/ veggies, tofu & cheese in a row closer to 1 side of the tortilla.
3. Season with salt & pepper.
4. Fold in at 2 ends & holding the stuffing in place, fold the tortilla over & tuck it under the filling. Roll on & sit on the other end.
5. Dry roast (or with a little butter) in a pan to ensure the open end closes well to seal in the filling.
