I'm honestly not even sure if this can be considered a real recipe! But I have been on a kick lately in making these and I've received a few requests!
This recipe can fit any lifestyle - you just choose your crust and toppings to make it dairy free, wheat free, paleo, whole 30, keto/high protein - or whatever it is you jive on!
Easy Lavash in Under 30
Here is my finished one from last night!
What I used:
base: oat and flax Joseph's brand lavash
proteins: shredded crockpot chicken and a fried egg
veggies: mushrooms, power greens mix
fat: go veggie cheese
I'll post the links below!
You can find these wraps at the grocery store or on Amazon. I also really like the round pita breads of this same brand. They are high in protein, low in carbs and super soft! If it's just me I use half of one and for the two of us I just utilize the whole wrap. Macros for those who track (for 1/2 a lavash): 4 net carbs/ 6 protein and 1.5 fat
To make paleo you could use roasted potatoes or zucchini as your base, or try a coconut or almond flour tortilla. I've heard great things about these Siete brand ones! You could even use a tortilla chip for a base if you wish, but you won't need to pre-bake them before adding your toppings.
I first baked the base at 400 degrees for about 7 minutes. Watch carefully because it can go from NOT done to OVER done very quickly! I love these silicone baking liners for my pans for easy clean up and even baking. Parchment paper also works well for this.
After baking until the lavash was starting to crisp up I took my pan out of the oven and broke them up into chips!
Then start layering your toppings!
I started with my veggies: greens and mushrooms
Then I added the chicken, fried egg and cheese. I had already had the egg cooked. Since I'm dairy free - (see THIS POST to learn more about that!) I topped it with the Go Veggie brand cheese slices. Yes - dairy free cheese exists and I promise it's good!!!
Once you have all your toppings on, stick it back in the oven until your cheese is melted! It should only take a couple minutes and keep your eye on it so nothing burns. You can also turn the broiler on high to speed up the process!
Ok... Let's review!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare your baking sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking make
Add your base!
Base ideas: Joseph's Lavash (as discussed above), roasted potatoes, slices of zucchini, tortilla chips, paleo tortilla (usually made from coconut, almond or cassava flour)
Bake your base (unless using chips) for about 7 minutes watching closely!
Remove from the oven and layer on toppings starting with your veggies, then meat, then cheese!
Veggie ideas: mushrooms, peppers, onions, cilantro, greens, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, egg plant
Proteins: burger, fried egg, chicken, turkey, pepperoni, steak, ham, shrimp
Fats: Cheese, Guac (after finishing baking)
Put your lavash back in the oven and let the cheese melt and everything to heat up.
Remove and enjoy! I love topping mine with a drizzle of ranch, buffalo sauce and sprinkling it with red pepper flakes and nutritional yeast. Seriously get creative and what sounds great to you! I can't wait to see your creations!
What would you put on your lavash?
Do you ever use those wraps?
