How to make the wraps

  1. Mix the egg whites and flour together with salt and sweetener to taste. Mix everything with a (stick) blender.
  2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add a third of the batter. Wait until the bottom of the wrap is set. Flip it carefully to heat the other side.
  3. Serve directly or wrap the wraps in tin foil (to keep them soft) for later consumption and store in the fridge.

 

 

How to make the pasta sauce

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the meat and break it up with a spatula; brown it on all sides until no longer pink inside.
  2. While your meat is cooking, chop your vegetables in very small pieces.
  3. Stir-fry the chopped vegetables for a few minutes. Start with the onion, then the zucchini and then finally the bell pepper.
  4. Transfer the meat to a big cooking pot. Add the vegetables and the jars of pasta sauce. Mix everything well. Add salt and sweetener to taste and let it simmer for a few minutes.
  5. Chop the avocado in cubes. Mix the portion of the pasta sauce that you’re going to eat with the avocado and heat it for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add it on top of the wrap and fold it.
