Meet The 10-Minute Summer Lunch We Can't Get Enough Of

When it comes to lunch, there are a lot of boxes to tick. Satiating is a must, but feeling stuffed only leads to sluggishness that doesn't vibe with our busy afternoons. It needs to keep our blood sugar balanced and give our body a dose of micro- and macronutrients. If we're honest, we're not going to spend more than 15 minutes making it, plus it needs to be portable and taste good enough that we want to sit down and enjoy it, distraction-free. Impossible? Not so much.

Lettuce wraps are the tried-and-true go-to that tick every (yes, every) box, and once you have a good base recipe in your repertoire, you can change them up depending on what you're craving that day. Plus, if you're making them for green-adverse kids, you can always swap the lettuce out for their favorite wrap.

This recipe uses roasted turkey breast, hummus, and cheese as sources of satiating protein to ensure you're not feeling hungry again in an hour, which means navigating the deli section to avoid artificial colors and flavors, nitrates, and sugars.

Our hack? Rather than spending time reading the back of the label, look for the Boar's Head® Simplicity® logo. This delicious line of all-natural and organic deli meat, cheese, and hummus is made with real food ingredients so you can feel confident that what you're buying is curated farm-to-table.

Method

1. Wash and dry butter lettuce leaves and place them on a flat surface.

2. Spread half the mashed avocado and Boar's Head® Simplicity® Organic Traditional Hummus on each leaf.

3. Lay slices of Boar's Head® Simplicity® Organic Roasted Turkey Breast on each leaf, followed by your Boar's Head® sliced cheese of choice.

We recommend Boar's Head® Simplicity® Organic Cheddar Cheese for kids and Boar's Head® Simplicity® All Natural* Picante Provolone Cheese for adults.

4. Next, top both wraps with grated carrot and microgreens or sprouts.

5. For the adults' wrap: Add red onion and sliced pickles, and season with salt and pepper.

6. Wrap the leaves up just as you would a burrito, and enjoy!

Note: This recipe is highly adaptable—get creative with the base recipe! We love grilled peppers and olives, beets and grilled asparagus, or cucumber and pickled ginger carrots.

*No artificial ingredients, minimally processed
