Eating out is pleasure and pain; it’s convienient, fun…yet taxing to both the wallet and the waistline. Even seemingly healthy dishes can be loaded with sodium and fats that you can’t readily discern. I’ve made it a point to cook most of my meals in the name of saving money and keeping my body right (ok, in the name of losing this last fifteeen, same diff). This is one of my favorite summer dishes- it’s easy to make, tasty and filling. Even Clutchettes and Clutch Gents who are less kitchen-inclined can whip it up in a jiffy. Enjoy!

  • 1 large whole-wheat tortilla or flatbread (look for varieties that contain Omega-3 or flax seed for added nutrients)
  • 1 tablespoon of hummus (Trader Joe’s makes a number of fab flavors; Sabra tahini hummus is also delish) or guacamole
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach, washed and dried
  • 1/4 cup of sliced or chopped tomatoes
  • 1 ounce of shredded extra sharp cheddar (try Cabot Seriously Sharp) or feta cheese crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon of your favorite light vinaigrette dressing (try a lemon or raspberry variety)
  • optional: 4 ounces of grilled or broiled skinless chicken breast, fish (salmon is the bomb, but if you want to save a few more bucks, use swai or chunk light tuna)
  • Prep a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and warm the tortilla on both sides. Spread with hummus or guacamole, then pile on the spinach, tomatoes and protein. Top with cheese and drizzle with dressing.

    Thanks for sharing. This sounds delicious. Would you happen to know the nutritional content of it all? I’m on Weight Watchers.

    • Sorry, Davida, but we don’t. Going forward, we’ll *try* to include that information with future recipes! Good luck with WW!
