“This is a wrap within a wrap. Cottage cheese is mixed with fresh vegetables and herbs for zest and vigor, then placed inside a crisp lettuce leaf before being wrapped in a tortilla. For a change, you could add a little feta cheese. Adapted from Wraps cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place cottage cheese in a sieve and press to remove some of the moisture.
  2. Mix the bell pepper, carrot, tomato, lemon juice, green onion, basil, lemon zest, and onion salt in a medium bowl. Add black pepper to taste. Gently fold cottage cheese into the vegetable mixture.
  3. Place a lettuce leaf on each tortilla.
  4. Divide the cottage cheese mixture among the lettuce leaf lined tortillas and wrap.
  5. Enjoy immediately!
  6. How to wrap:
  7. If tortilla is stiff, warm slightly(about 15 seconds) to make more flexible. Fold the right and left edges of the tortilla over the filling, toward the center. Fold the bottom edge of the tortilla toward the center and gently roll until the tortilla is completely wrapped around the filling.
