It’s super important because it seems we’re always so busy.
And I don’t know about you, but when I get involved in work or running errands, I often find that I’ve forgotten to eat lunch.
Say WHAT??

Yes, it’s true.
Am I alone here? 
But now having the ingredients on hand I need to make these wraps makes it easy to remember that my body needs to be fed.

Beet, Turkey and Cheese Wrap

I love using Aunt Nellie’s Diced Pickled Beets single serve containers for this Beet, Turkey, and Cheese Wrap recipe.
Each container has just the right amount and because they are already diced, adding them is super easy.

I don’t have to peel, cook, pickle or cut and yet, I enjoy ALL the flavor and health benefits!
Ruby-red beets are so gosh darn good for you, too. They’re rich in antioxidants, and add fiber as well as vitamins and minerals to your diet. They’re a good source of  Vitamins A, C and Folate, and minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Potassium. 

So let’s eat more beets!! 
Look for Aunt Nellie’s beets in the canned and jarred vegetable aisle of your favorite grocery store. 

Aunt Nellie's Diced Pickled Beets

Pickled or not, beets can add wonderful flavor to a variety of your dishes.
My favorite way to eat them is with a fork right out of the jar!

Beets can be added to salads like my Strawberry Spinach Salad, Greek Quinoa Chicken Salad, Couscous Chicken Salad, and this Easy Three Bean Salad.

They’re a delicious side for your Shepherd’s Pie, Chimichurri Salmon, Chicken ‘N’ Dumplins, Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole, and Chicken Noodle Casserole, too.

Pair it with these Parmesan Pork Chops with Pesto, this Artichoke Tomato Chicken, or these Quinoa, Black Bean and Turkey Stuffed Peppers.

Beets even make a great addition to hummus, and smoothies. 
You can also use beet liquid as a natural coloring for baked goods and as a flavoring in drinks!
The possibilities are endless.

What do I need to make my beet, turkey, and cheese lavash wrap?

  • 4 slices lavash
  • Cream cheese
    at room temperature
  • dill
    to add to the cream cheese
  • deli turkey slices
  • fresh spinach
  • mandarin orange slices
  • Aunt Nellie’s Pickled Beets! Using the individual single serve containers makes it super easy to put these wraps together because the beets are already diced and all you have to do is drain them.

You can use a tortilla for this recipe as well, but I loved using the lavash.
Lavash is a soft Middle Eastern flatbread that is thin and low in carbohydrates. Similar to a regular wrap, but lavash is more square or rectangular in shape.

How do I make these roll ups?

  •  I found it easiest to drain the single serve containers of Aunt Nellie’s Diced Pickled Beets one at a time. That way I could add the correct amount to each wrap making sure it wasn’t too full.
  • Place a lavash on a clean work surface. 
  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature. This will make it easier to mix the dill into it.
    Once the dill and cream cheese is thoroughly combined, spread about ¼ cup onto the lavash.
  • Add the turkey slices.
  • Cover with the fresh spinach.
  • Disperse about 8 mandarin orange slices.
  • Saving the best for last, add the Aunt Nellie’s Diced Pickled Beets that you’ve drained, making sure they are evenly distributed as well.
  • Beginning from the longer side closest to you, roll the lavash. 
  • Slice in half. Repeat with remaining ingredients or save the rest for later!
