Give your cold-cut sandwich routine a rest and opt for this creative lunch instead. These fresh, raw, and fast wraps feature a unique filling: ground walnuts, seasoned with tamari (a Japanese soy sauce that contains little to no wheat), cumin, and other spices and topped with your favorite salsa. The result is a surprisingly meaty-tasting meal that is completely animal-free and chock-full of nutrients like healthy fats, iron, and vitamins A, C, E, and K.
The wrap is from celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s cookbook The Beauty Detox Foods and is a favorite of actress Drew Barrymore for helping her stay on track after having daughter Olive. I’ll admit, I was skeptical about ground walnuts as a main meal but was pleasantly surprised by this wrap. It’s delicious and filling, and the good-for-you ingredients really make you feel like you’re ready to take on your afternoon.
If you are gluten-free, look for a tamari that contains no wheat. If you aren’t, you can also substitute tamari with low-sodium soy sauce. If you don’t have a food processor, use a blender and blend the walnuts in batches.
