As some of you know from my photo on Facebook last week, I received a pack of Paleo Wraps to try out. I’ve only eaten two of the wraps so far, in the form of this recipe and let me tell you, it is amazing — the wrap and all! The sweetness of the banana, the spice of the curry, the creaminess of the sunflower seed butter and the fresh flavor of the chard combine beautifully. And, the wrap is the perfect vehicle for all the ingredients and holds together well. There’s a slight crispness and crunch from the wrap and the chard, but the softness of the banana and sunflower seed butter complement it nicely. In a nutshell, this wrap is downright rad!
*Note, if you don’t have access to Paleo Wraps, you can simply wrap the banana strips, sunflower seed butter, curry and sea salt together inside a whole, stemmed chard leaf.
Curried Banana Wrap
- 1 Paleo Wrap
- 1/2 large banana or 1 small banana, cut into long thin strips
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup chard, cut into long strips
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened sunflower seed butter (I used Once Again Organic Sugar & Salt Free)
- 1/8 – 1/4 tsp curry powder
- Dash of sea salt, optional, but recommended if sunflower seed butter is unsalted
- Place Paleo Wrap on a plate and spread a thick smear of sunflower seed butter in the middle. Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Next, place the chard and banana strips in the middle of the wrap, atop of the sunflower seed butter or just to the side of it. Sprinkle with curry powder.
- Wrap, eat and savor!
Yields: 1 serving
Savor, indeed! And, you know me, I don’t even like bananas! I’d really like to try the wraps someday soon. Maybe I’ll use pears instead of bananas.
I love pears, but the banana is where it’s at with this one — the texture, flavor, everything! I bet it’d be good with pear, but I don’t think it’d compare. I know you have your banana thing though, so you gotta do what you gotta do 😉
