Wrap and Roll

May 6, 2014

Serious question: has anyone out there successfully used lettuce as a wrap? I mean, I love the idea, I’ve ordered them in restaurants and made them at home, but they always fall apart. I inevitably end up just using a knife and fork in which case, why not just make a salad with the filling as a topping instead?

Deep thoughts for a Tuesday.

To bring you all up to speed, I’ve been looking for something to use as an alternative to corn and flour tortillas. I miss the convenience of being able to eat something on the go rather than sitting down to a salad for lunch every day.

I stumbled across these during a search for grain free alternatives to wraps that were not lettuce.  I’m intrigued by the three ingredient list (coconut, coconut water and salt) and the interesting nutritional values. Each wrap contains only 60 calories but has 10% of your sodium for the day. That seems fairly high but perhaps they need a lot of salt for the dehydration process? It can’t be easy to dehydrate coconut considering the fat content. In any case, I’m wondering if anyone out there has tried them? Thinking of putting in an order but would prefer not to spend the money if they’re disappointing.

I guess I could always go the nori route although I feel like they would have structural issues much like the lettuce wrap. If you have other suggestions, I’d love to hear them!  Let’s crowd source this!
