Does this question sound familiar ? “Mom, what's for dinner?” Are you always looking for new and exciting meals to please yourself and your family? If the answer to these questions is yes, then we have the answer.
Introducing Wrapolé® ? one of the few kosher, Pas Yisrael flour tortillas. In their own words, “Ellen and Miguel stood in their local supermarket and had a half-baked idea. Literally! “Let's make a great tasting kosher flour tortilla!” After two years of experimenting in their kitchen to create the right recipe, Wrapolé® gourmet tortillas were born. Thus taking a half-baked idea, turning it into a fully baked perfection.”
So I suppose you're wondering what can you do with a wrap. The truth is just about anything. Layer raw or sautéed vegetables in a flavored wrap and fold it over. Spread your favorite cheese spread on the wrap and roll it into a long cigar shape. Top it with your favorite cheese and sauce and heat for 5 minutes for a great homemade pizza. You can find a whole selection on the Wrapolé® website www.wrapole.com.
My family tried both the tex-mex and the spinach and I was surprised at how much we all enjoyed them. Even my children, who have a tendency to be picky eaters, loved the spinach flavored ones. We used them in many of the ways I mentioned above ? but their favorite was covered with cream cheese and a light sprinkling of scallions. Rolled up as a cigar it became a great conversation piece in the school lunchroom. As a matter of fact, they are now a staple in our home.
Wrapolé® products are also available in original, whole wheat and sesame. They're parve, pas yisrael and available on-line or in your local kosher grocery. They're also available in institutional size packages.
