The Most Amazing Wrap Ever

looks all innocent, but its really the best wrap you'll ever have. 

I realize that with this post I may lose all credibility I ever had as a food blogger. Either way, I am totally willing to risk it for this post. It's that good. I'm not sure where I found this recipe for the first time... I think it may have been a British blog devoted to cheap student meals. (side note about being a student and this wrap- it works. I have often made this to take with me to the library. Unfortunately I am STILL taking exams, and so you may spot me a few more times in the library, trying to sneak this wrap past the librarian. Also, as a further aside, my mother is a librarian- please don't tell her I sneak food into the library, thank you.) 

I urge you to try this... be a little adventurous and give this taste mix a try. I'm practically addicted to these wraps (as shown in photo above. Thank you Doniel for the pic.) so without further ado.....

Peanut Butter-Chili Sauce Wraps with Cucumbers and Carrots 
(ten points to anyone who can come up with a better name for this recipe) 

  • quarter of an onion, sliced thin 
  • one cucumber and carrot, julienned (sometimes I peel the carrot, and continue peeling instead of slicing)
  • sweet chili sauce (chili matok in Hebrew) 
  • peanut butter 
  • lemon juice
  • tortilla 

Spread tortilla with a thin layer of peanut butter. Layer cucumbers, carrots and lemon juice in the center of the tortilla. Sprinkle with onions and sweet chili sauce- careful with the sauce- if you put too much the wrap will leak. Fold up tortilla, eat and ENJOY! 

Please let me know what you think of this if you try this out! 


  1. Still not understanding how the pb doesn't feel uncomfortable in there.

  2. Peanut butter and chili? Eek! I'll stick to my lunch today: veggie deli wrap w pickle tomato and mustard. And don't worry, your secret is safe w me!

  3. dont knock it till you try it!

  4. You can buy the butter with chilli already in it. Mexican style from B&D

  5. Dear Leah,

    You could call these Thai Wraps, especially if you add a drop of coconut milk instead of some of the chili sauce.

    I'll try them as soon as the kids show up at home.



  6. Interesting wraps - maybe i'll give it a whirl ;)
