On today’s lunch menu: spinach pizza roll-ups on fancy schmancy blue corn flax seed tortillas. I love fancy schmancy tortillas. I made the rookie mistake of overfilling my pizza roll-ups and they got slightly oozy. I always forget that you need about half the filling you think you need on tortilla wrap roll-up thingies. But, no matter, the ooziness actually looks pretty yummy. For a veggie serving, I went with edamame, because I fear my kids may be suffering from sliced carrot fatigue. For fruit, I mixed in some oranges from our trees (yes, this is a California luxury) with plums and grapes.

*Cooking Tip: Spinach Pizza Roll-ups

  • marinara sauce
  • fresh spinach leaves
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • whole grain tortillas

Spread a thin layer of your favorite marinara sauce on a tortilla. Place spinach leaves on top and sprinkle with cheese. Microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the cheese is melted and the spinach is slightly wilted. Roll up and let cool. You can slice these into little cute sushi-style rolls or keep them whole and serve burrito-style.
