Lately one of my favourite already-prepared ingredients are Phyllo (fillo) sheets. I found a great brand that sells organic whole wheat fillo sheets, and have been experimenting with all sorts of delicious edibles.
The first delicious phyllo recipe to share are turkey phyllo wraps!
Turkey Phyllo (Fillo) Wraps
•10 phyllo sheets•500g lean ground turkey
•thinly chopped celery
•thinly sliced eggplant
1)Thaw phyllo sheets in fridge overnight
2)In a frying pan cook lean ground turkey with the tomatoes, celery and seasonings.
3)Fold the phyllo sheet so it is a quarter of it’s size.
4)Place spinach on center of folded phyllo, top with turkey/tomato mixture. Place eggplant on top, squeeze with lemon, sprinkle with extra spices and fold.
5)Place in 350degF oven for 10-15minutes (until crispy)
This recipe requires a bit of prep, but it makes 10 wraps. I froze half, then placed in oven when re-cooking.
Although you may have pre concieved ideas of phyllo sheets this recipe is actually very nutrious. One wrap is only approx 160 calories: 20g carbs (including veggies)/4g fat/12g protein
These are delicious! I loved them topped with greek yogurt and salsa
The oven crisps the phyllo sheets up beautifully!
These are best enjoyed the same day as being prepared as phyllo sheets loose the crispy-ness after sitting in the fridge overnight.
