"You know, I think I'll feel much better if I make a healthy meal tonight. I'm sure I could throw something together really quickly if I wanted to."
"But I already have all the stuff I need. It really won't take that long."
"I even have that orange 'chicken' I can use."
"Orange 'chicken', you say? Well, maybe just this once."
A few weeks ago, one of my very good friends recommended that I try a Trader Joe's brand of "Chicken-Less Mandarin Orange Morsels," which I did, and it's now pretty much my favorite thing ever. It had never even entered my mind that there might be a vegetarian version of that, so I'm so glad she mentioned it (thanks, Janet!). It's fantastic, and there are lots of things I can do with it in a pinch when I'm tired and don't want to spend a long time cooking anything. I've done orange "chicken" over rice with stir-fried veggies, I've done salads, and now this wrap, which turned out super good.
There really aren't very many steps to this:
- Cook "chicken" according to package directions.
- Wash veggies
- Cut bell pepper into thin slices
- Pile everything into a tortilla and eat it
- Repeat step 4 until full and ready for a nap
9.25 oz bag of Trader Joe's "Chicken-Less Mandarin Orange Morsels"
1/2 red bell pepper cut into thin slices
1 bag of pre-made Asian Chopped Salad. I used this one, which has cabbage, carrots, celery, green onions, cilantro, wonton noodles, and sliced toasted almonds. I saved the dressing that was included for another time, since there was plenty of salad left over.
Butter lettuce, rinsed and dried
1 package medium whole wheat tortillas. I really like Guerrero brand because they taste good and don't get gummy like some do.
Serving size: 3-4
