I found this bread a few days ago at my local BJ’s. I never heard of Lavash bread but it looked good, like a huge rectangle of flat bread (similar to flat out). Glancing at the nutritional information reveals it’s only 50 calories a serving! With 2g of fat and 3g of fiber. Now don’t get too excited, a servings is half a piece, but still for 100 calories you can’t beat the size.
The first time I tried it wrapped around a hot dog and baked beans. It was DELICIOUS! Soft and chewy. Half slice was just long enough for my Hebrew National. I also tried it with some deli ham, laughing cow and baby spinach. Yum again!
The cool thing… the bread is so soft that it kind of sticks to itself. Making wraps stay together better then traditional wraps or tortillas. The bad thing…. It’s hard to get a slice out of the package because the bread sticks together. It’s not a deal breaker, though! Just take a butter knife and work the slices apart. It takes some time but it’s worth it.
Oh and the toddler LOVES it. We even use it to make “sushi” rolls for his school lunches. I’m thinking that may be next weeks video for GreenLiteBites. ;~P
