dr. Alexander filled the flatbread with wilted spinach, cheddar cheese and a good dash of lemon juice
The dish was then removed from the grill and a generous splash of fresh lemon juice was sprayed over the cheese and spinach before folding the wrap in half
The end result looked delicious and would make a great lunch idea for kids and adults alike
To make the healthy lunch meal, she first shrunk the spinach in a pan on the stove with some olive oil.
“I’ve used home-grown silver beet (withered) here because I’m a little legend,” she joked, adding, “But baby spinach or frozen spinach ($2 at the grocery store) works well, too.”
When the spinach was done, she put a small amount on one side of a wrap and added a few slices of cheddar cheese.
She then grilled the opened wrap for ten minutes, watching to make sure the cheese didn’t burn.
The dish was then removed from the grill and a generous splash of fresh lemon juice was sprayed over the cheese and spinach before folding the wrap in half.
