Spinach & Basil Green Pesto Egg Wraps

2017-04-03-05.42.39-1.jpg.jpegI’ve discovered these beauts about a week ago and have been making them in abundance ever since. These little bad boys are ridiculously healthy and with such a colourful, quirky appearance, they make a slob like me seem fancy and glam – like I have my shit together. Realistically, these require fuck all ingredients and time – alas, my life is indeed a big green delicious lie.

As I tried them for the first time, I couldn’t get over the pesto-ish flavour throughout, thanks to the addition of the basil leaves, so next time I decided to spruce them up even more so by adding garlic granules and really bringing that funky flavour through.

I’ve only experimented a little bit but my inspiration is now flowing thanks to these little green gangstaz. You can have them as wraps or eat them pancake-style, with savoury ingredients throughout the layers.

OHH! TIP!Lay them down flat on the plate and place your filling on before folding them over when they’re still hot – they should keep their shape and create a ‘wrap’ effect.


They’re so versatile that I couldn’t really decide what to name them – wraps, flats, tortillas, omelettes? Suggest me with funky names if you dare! Recipe below!
