FOR MANY PEOPLE OUTE THERE, MEXICAN WRAPS ARE A FAVORITE COMFORT FOOD; JUST BECAUSE THEY INCLUDE TORTILLAS.
These thin, tasty pancakes-like, which are usually stuffed with savory ingredients, like cheese, meat, and veggies.
However, the numerous possibilities of a tortilla are not limited to Mexican food, as with this versatile flatbread one can make various types of wraps. With that being said, let’s get some food inspo with 6 tortilla wraps that are toaster-friendly and filled with ingredients from 6 Mediterranean countries.
1. THE FRENCH WAY
Have you ever eaten a sweet tortilla? We can assure you that it’s totally a must-try, and a perfect solution for the times you crave a sweet crepe but do not have crepes at home. Usually, French crepes contain chocolate, strawberries, and bananas, but the sky is really the limit, as you can include berries, nuts, hazelnut spread, granola, or whatever you like.
2. THE ITALIAN WAY
Now that we have established that tortilla can be eaten as a dessert as well, it is time to dive into more traditional forms. The Italian version of a tortilla wrap is definitely healthier and with less calories, as it may be filled with ingredients like mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and/or deli cold cuts, such as salami, or artichokes, for a meat-less version.
3. THE GREEK WAY
Have you heard of souvlaki? If you did not have the chance to taste the real thing so far, just prepare an easy Greek tortilla wrap at home! You can stuff it with marinated boneless and skinless chicken thighs, yoghurt sauce or the well-known tzatziki, fried potatoes with oregano or paprika, tomatoes, lettuce, and onions.
4. THE CYPRIOT WAY
The Cypriot version is another healthy and light alternative, ideal for evening meals. Take a wrap, stuff it with Cypriot Halloumi and salad, and garnish with some olive oil. If this sounds too simple to you, Halloumi also goes well with honey and pickled walnuts, or mushrooms and roasted red peppers.
5. THE LEBANESE WAY
Remember when we suggested swapping Hamburger for Falafel Wrap? A vegan-friendly tortilla wrap is ideal for detox days. Besides, the Mediterranean Diet suggests eating meat in moderation, so finding ways to reduce it while consuming tasty delicacies, is highly beneficial. To make it, just take a tortilla, add falafel, houmous, tomatoes, and lettuce, and you are good to go!
6. THE TURKISH WAY
Finally, for the true meat lovers, the Turkish wrap is probably the best version. To make it, add some lamb kebab to your tortilla, along with lemon juice, yoghurt, and vegetables like onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. Plus, it is important to add spices, including cumin, sweet paprika, cinnamon, and thyme.
