IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A WRAP TO HOLD YOU TIGHT (thank you Nelly Furtado’s ‘Promiscuous’ lyrics), you have come to the right place.
It has been a rather active and slightly exhausting week and by the time it was Saturday I could feel my body needing TLC in shape of easy food and good rest. I strolled through the supermarket and chose my most favorite healthy ingredients: sweet potato, broccoli, avocado and corn – then realized these would make an amazing wrap combined with delicious feta cheese!
Sweet Potato & Broccoli Wraps
WASH AND PEEL sweet potato. Cut in thin slices (about 0.5 cm thin). Place in a pan with boiling water and boil for about 20 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft.
WASH BROCCOLI AND CUT INTO PIECES. Place pieces on a sieve, then place atop of pan with boiling water -> this will steam your broccoli to perfection. Cover the sieve with a lid (from the pan) and in about 15 minutes the broccoli will be soft (but not mushy) and done.
WHILE THE SWEET POTATO IS COOKING and broccoli steaming, use the time to cut avocado in slices and feta cheese in squares. Rinse the corn if using jarred. Optional: warm up the wraps in a softly heated oven (about 100 C) for 10 minutes.
DRAIN SWEET POTATO and serve all ingredients so that everyone can build their own wrap. ALTERNATIVELY, mash sweet potato and avocado together with a fork to make a 'Sweet potato & Avocado spread'.
