This is one of my favorite quick and easys.. Its fantastic with any array of topings and is perfect for those nights when the last thing you want is that same old protein and vegetable that you have eaten a million times.
You will need:
whole wheat tortillas
organic tomato sauce
choice of meat
choice of vegetables
optional low fat / mozzarella cheese
Start by laying out your whole wheat tortillas on a paking sheet. Apply anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon of your tomato sauce depending on the size of your tortilla. I like to use a "roasted garlic" variety of sauce. Sit those aside and set your oven to preheat at 425.
Here come the toppings... I have found that my favorite toppings on these as far as the vegies go are fresh aspapragus, mushrooms, and red and/or green / yellow peppers. I chop up the raw ingredients and set them to saute. You can season them anyway you like. I like to use onion powder, cilantro and garlic or garlic salt all to taste. Here is where the optional protein comes in. Often times I have my meals pre-cooked and portioned out.. this makes this recipe so much easier.. no matter what protein is on the agenda I can use my portion, cut it up and toss it in with the vegies.. I've even used salmon on this and REALLY liked it. Makes for a nice spin on traditional pizza. Also if you would like to stick to just the vegetables it is fantastic that way as well. Pair it with your favorite protein supplement too.. whatever works for you.
Once you have cooked your vegies to the desired texture just toss them onto your sauced up tortillas and if you want (and your diet permits) sprinkle just a little mozzarella or your choice of low fat / no fat cheese on top.
Toss 'em in the oven until the tortilla is crisp and boom your done..
I spent a little time last night on a new addition to my recipes that has proved to be a big hit.. so much so that of the 12 bars I made I didn't get a single one!
1/2 c. Oats
3 tbsp. Honey
1/3 c. Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 c. 1% milk
3 tbsp. Peanuts
8 scoops of your favorite chocolate protein
Mix ingredients. This will prove to be a slight challenge with so little liquid. I've found that I usually have to kneed the mixture. The consistency will be that of the inside of a protein bar. The peanuts can be added whole to the mixture or crushed and used to roll them in. Personally I prefer to mix them they may not be quite as pretty this way but it cuts down on the on-the-go mess.
Once the ingredients are mixed separate it into equal sized portions and form bars. I prefer to make one bar for every scoop of protein. This works great for my non-bodybuilding friends looking for a better snack but not needing the massive size.
These are no-bake bars so just be sure to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes.
