There are days when you just want to relax and enjoy simple pleasures. Routine is reassuring. Casual makes sense. My routine on a Sunday morning is to head to yoga. Shri Yoga in particular. Lately my yoga practice is getting interference from my blogging practice. My meditation is rife with recipe musings. Perhaps just having a smoothie before class makes me long for real food? It doesn’t help me stay focused knowing that the Metro store is just below the yoga studio…instead of “om”, I’m internally chanting my grocery list.
After picking up the “right” eggs, as per Harriet Sugar Miller, some whole wheat wraps and a few odds and ends my plan was formed. It took a few minutes to throw this comfort food wrap together and it stayed piping hot until the very last bite.
- 2 eggs, Omega 3
- 1 whole wheat pita wrap, heated in a hot iron pan just until warm but not brown
- 1 T red onion, finely chopped
- 1 T orange bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 sun-dried tomato in oil, finely chopped
- 1 T feta, finely chopped
- 1 T avocado, finely chopped
- 2 t chives, finely chopped
- 1 t Dijon mustard
- 1 t butter
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Mix the eggs with the Dijon, salt & pepper the add the crumbled feta and the sun-dried tomato. Heat the butter in a medium sized pan, then sauté the onion and pepper until softened. Add the egg mixture to the pan, flipping when set. Place the cooked quasi-omelet on the warmed tortilla, adding the avocado and chives. Fold and eat. The flavours blend. With a blindfold you’d be hard pressed to name individual ingredients, but they really work together. Of course you can experiment with whatever ingredients you have on hand: different cheeses, bits of meat – if you are feeling omnivorous, various fresh veggies and herbs. It took some self control not to throw in some spicy hot peppers, maybe next time.
If you are concerned about getting the tortilla to just the right amount of heated and not into the browning crispy state that will crack rather than fold, just put a bit of crumbled cheese onto the tortilla and remove it from the pan when the cheese melts.
