Spicy Asian Wrap

Spicy Asian Wrap

Although my main food love is Mediterranean food, a good Asian dish can also make my day! Therefore, I thought of this quick and easy, spicy Asian inspired wrap. It it perfect for on the go or when you just don’t feel like putting in much effort, whilst still wanting to eat healthy. This dish can be made with chicken or vegan chicken schnitzel, just what you prefer.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 or 2 (multigrain) wraps
  • 1 (vegan) chicken schnitzel
  • 2 hands full of bean sprouts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 hands full of spinach
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • sriracha chili sauce
  • Black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • Half a leek
  • 1/4 a cup of water
  • Olive oil or coconut oil

Let’s get to it!

You start by cutting up the onion, the garlic, the bell pepper and the leek. These pieces can all be somewhat big for some extra bite in the end. Pre-heat the oven at 200 degrees. Then you cut the schnitzel in strips.

In one pan, you cook the cut up vegetables, the spinach and the bean sprouts in some oil. When the vegetables are cooked halfway through, you add the water with the black pepper, the turmeric. Keep cooking this on a medium heat and stir regularly, so the water can evaporate and the spices can get into the vegetables. In another pan, you can then cook the wraps very quickly first. Put them on a plate for later.

Then, you cook the schnitzel strips until they are cooked all the way and golden brown. Don’t add too much oil in this process, because then the strips won’t keep their crispiness, so add just enough so that they don’t stick to the pan. When they are done, mix them in with your vegetables that are now spiced up with little water left. Add sriracha sauce and some lemon juice to the taste and mix everything together. Then, add the mixture to your wraps and put then in the oven for 5 minutes to really heat up all together, and then you are done!

If you have no oven, you can do it without, but then I would recommend cooking the mixture a little longer after it’s mixed with a little bit of extra water (like a tablespoon or two) and baking the wraps last minutes, so they are still warm as well.

Extra tip!

Would you like a more surprising taste? Replace the crunch chicken with some nice shrimps or add some feta cheese or pomegranate seeds last minute for a fresher taste! For something lighter, you can just leave the wrap and eat it as a very healthy salad instead.

I really hope you liked this recipe and please let me know if you’ve tried it and if you have some nice extra tips as well! And if you liked this, please subscribe to my blog or follow me on InstagramPinterest and Twitter, so you’ll never have to miss a new post!
