"Crazy good." This is a new phrase in our house used to describe almost everything - a game, a story, a movie, and most often food. Something has to be out-of-this-world amazing to be "crazy good" according to the boys. So when I made Andrew Zimmern's Matzoh Ball Soup for dinner tonight and both boys declared it to be so, I knew this was a keeper. Maybe it's the incredibly light yet flavorful matzo balls. Or the silky broth and sweet vegetables. Whatever it is, both boys had three helpings. We don't celebrate Passover (we're not Jewish), but will be making this soup every year - and all year round.
We’re very much a BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch) family. There are many reasons for making and bringing your lunch (healthier and affordable being on the top of my list usually). But it’s also easy to get into a lunch-making rut. Maybe it’s the brutal winter we’ve endured, but lunches here have been uninspired lately.
Cut to last week when I had the opportunity to try Flatout Flatbreads and Starkist Tuna. Flatout Flatbreads come in a variety of flavors from traditional to healthy grains to Thin Crust Flatbreads for making artisan pizzas. It’s easy to see why I was eager to try out some new recipes with so much variety. Bye-bye sliced bread!
Here’s a recipe for Curried Tuna with Raisins and Apples in Flatout Soft 100% Whole Wheat Flatbread. It’s easy to whip up and has a ton a flavor. I even got a thumbs up from my oldest who claims he’s “not a fan of tuna.”
Curried Tuna with Raisins & Apples Wraps
Two 2.6 oz Pouches Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in Water
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 small apple (we like Fuji), peeled, halved, cored and diced
1-2 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp scallions, sliced thin
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
2 Flatout Soft 100% Whole Wheat Flatbread
In a medium bowl, mix together the tuna, yogurt, apple, raisins, scallions, carrots, curry powder, lime juice, salt and pepper.
Layout a Flatout Flatbread on a clean counter or cutting board. Scoop out half of mixture at one end of the wrap.
Roll the wrap tightly.
Repeat and enjoy!
Disclosure: I was compensated and provided Flatout Flatbreads and Starkist Pouches to try this product. As always, all opinions are my own.
A person can taste sweet, sour, salty and bitter. And then there's umami. Yummy in Japanese, umami is a savory taste and is considered the fifth taste. Check in as I chronicle kid-tested recipes and my experience at some of the best eateries with two tots in tow.
