Meal Prep Ideas 2- Wrap Edition

Hello Loves! I hope you have all been doing well. The past week has been quite a whirl-wind for me due to some work projects but I am grateful for the experiences that it came with. As promised in the previous post, I am sharing a few more cost and time effective recipes for you guys to try out. Enjoy! 🙂

Veggie Wrap

Wraps are one of the easiest things to whip up and the best thing about them is that you can get as creative as you please. I used chapatis for my wrap since they are readily available and more fresh than the packaged tortilla wraps from Chandarana.

Brawn Stuffed Rolex

Rolex is a famous Ugandan street food that is made up of fried eggs wrapped in chapati. I decided to be creative on this one and added some brawn and veggies to mine. Alternatively, you could use beef, chicken or sausage strips. If you are on a diet, you could substitute the fried eggs and brawn with strips of boiled eggs and tuna. The method for stuffing the rolex is similar to the one for the veggie wrap above. The main difference is in making the rolex itself.

1 Onion

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onions until translucent then add in the pepper and brawn then stir fry for about 2 minutes.
  2. Season with salt & pepper then set aside.
  3. Beat your eggs and season before frying.
  4. Once you pour the egg onto the pan, place the chapati on top and fry on medium-low heat so that both sides of the egg are well cooked. The egg will be attached to the chapati, forming the rolex. Once cooked, set aside.
  5. Sprinkle some salt & vinegar on the avocado.
  6. Stuff the rolex with the onion mixture and the avocado, wrap and cut into two.

These wraps are absolutely delicious and very filling. Another plus about them is that they do not need to be heated before eating, so they are very convenient if you have no means of warming your meals. If you intend on meal prepping these wraps, I would recommend that you eat them within 2 days when the veggies are still fresh. I hope this post has been helpful and I wish you all a productive week! 🙂
