First a question: if it is late one evening, let’s say around 7 pm or 7.30 pm, before you’re home from work. Do you jump right into the kitchen to prepare something or do you opt for a quick snack instead? I don’t know about you, but the later it becomes the more difficult I find it to even think about standing in the kitchen for half an hour or more. By that time I am hungry and don’t feel like waiting for food to cook, bake, be cut or whatever. I just want it done and eat.
And ofcourse it is not a nightmare if you eat something really fast like a sandwich or – well – even junkfood. It’s ok if that happens once a month, but if it becomes three times a week that is what I call an issue. Because having unhealthy food three times a week is just not a good idea.
At the moment Tom is at the market three times a week and that means we get up at 6 am and he is home by 7 pm or even 8 pm if the market is further away. “Nothing wrong with eating already” I can hear you think but we just don’t like that. We are attached to our meals together.. 🙂 And so we try and plan around it and some weeks that works out better than other weeks. Now that I am slowly becoming a bit more mobile (or at least I can wheel around in my chair) it becomes easier and I can start cooking when I know Tom is on his way home. So we can jump right in by the time he steps in the door.
And that it can sometimes literally be done in a few minutes is proven by this delicious little dish. It’s wrapped up (haha) literally within a few minutes and for a quick bite it is quite healthy. If you use whole wheat wraps it makes it even healthier. We used the super delicious yazzara dip from Maza. You might not know that particular dip but it is carrot and pumpkin dip. A little sweeter than your average hummus and very good on this wrap. I add quite heavy layer.. 🙂 I than covered it with lettuce, carrots, roastbeef and cucumber strips but it is obviously really easy to vary. Maza also has loads of other delicious spread and dips and I love their hummus. It’s one of the best premade. They also have a lovely variety with hummus ras el hanout and one with herbs. Or make a wrap with the labneh (yoghurt dip) A little fresher and also delicious.
You can find Maza usually in the supermarket in the cool section with salads.Print
