Avocado-Pistachio Wrap

This time of year, things get a little hectic...  its stupid, really...  I gave up my busy Jan-April job a couple of years ago, so this should be my slow time.  However, that rational thinking has caused me to overextend myself in so many ways that Jan-April is nearly as bad as it used to be.

before someone throws something at me, i did say NEARLY...

Anyway, (tangent - google tells me i use the word AGO more than any other word on this blog.  I'm completely and 100% shocked that its not ANYWAY...) busy nights lead to quick dinners thrown together...  After the quesedillias, there were a few random things kicking around and i'm still trying really hard to cut down on my food waste, so i was all 'what can i make with that bit of goat cheese and those tortillas?' and i thought back to the little card that was floating around in my bottomless pit bag from my local Pret...  It had instructions on how to construct their avocado-pine nut wrap and it was enough to get me started on my own avocado wrap.


Dont tell them, but i might like my version better...

Avocado-Pistachio Wrap
Inspired by Pret A Manger, courtesy of me

2 tbsp plain yogurt
2 tbsp low-fat mayo

2 whole grain tortillas

1 avocado, cut into slices
1/4 - 1/3 c goat cheese crumbles
1 c arugula
15 - 20 pistachios, shelled & chopped (yes, we have a slap chop.  2 in fact.  we > you)

salt & pepper


mix the yogurt & mayo together and set aside

lay out the tortillas

place 1/2 of the avocado, then 1/2 of the goat cheese, then 1/2 of the arugula & you guessed it, 1/2 of the pistachios in each, mostly towards the center and one end...  kind of like from the center of the clock down to 6 o'clock, if that makes sense...

salt & pepper to suit your personal tastes
(the average person enjoys 3 cranks of a pepper grinder.  true story.  learned it from a real-live bonafied professional chef)

Carefully fold both sides in and roll from the bottom*.  Slice in half** and enjoy.

* If you are as talented as me, your sides wont stay rolled so tight, but i assure you, your wrap will taste just as good, regardless...
**slicing on an angle makes the first bite easier to take...
