Thai Crunch Wraps {Easy Lunch Box}

We’ll be getting back to the Family Emergency Preparedness Series tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Easy Lunch Box

When I saw this recipe for Thai Crunch Wraps from Tastes Better from Scratch, I instantly knew it was a recipe I wanted to try… and I am so glad I did!

In fact, my kids said this recipe is now on their Favorite List. The original recipe called for chicken breast, but we are vegetarian so I replaced the chicken breast with Quorn “Chick’n Tenders” – one of our favorites. This recipe would be perfect for lunch, supper, or a picnic, too!

What I Packed

  • Thai Crunch Wraps
  • Sliced Gala Apples
  • Pearl Tomatoes
  • Fuze Lemon Iced Tea

I love to make simple and lunches and this easy lunch box was no exception. The Thai wraps were very easy to make and this entire lunch box was simple to prepare. Just squeeze lemon juice over the sliced apples and they’ll stay nice and white until lunch time! The tomatoes were juicy and I could have sliced them in half or quartered them, but I thought they were so pretty whole.

Thai Crunch Wraps

The filling for these wraps was ah-mazing! Soooo good. This filling would be perfect served warm over rice, too! A note about the sauce, I added more soy sauce than the original recipe called for.

Filling:

  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 bag Quorn Chik’n Tenders, thawed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded cabbage
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet chili sauce (found in the Asian section of the grocery store)
  • 1 heaping Tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp fresh minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • Crushed red pepper, to taste
  • 3 Large Spinach tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups Lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • Handful of green snap peas

Over medium heat in a large skillet, add oil. Add chick’n tenders, garlic, onions, salt, and pepper and cooking, stirring from time to time until the tenders have browned and the onions and garlic are kind of caramelized.

Add the carrots, cabbage, and green onions, and cook  a few minutes until vegetables are tender, but still have a nice crunch.

In a bowl combine the sweet chili sauce, ginger, chunky peanut butter, and soy sauce, and crushed red pepper. Whisk together until smooth. Pour sauce into the skillet over the chik’n mixture and add the chopped cilantro. Mix to combine and heat over medium low heat until heated through.. Layer tortillas with a handful of lettuce, peanuts, snap peas, and a large spoonful of the chik’n mixture. Roll tightly like a burrito and secure with a toothpick.

I cut my wrap on the diagonal. And I forgot to use toothpicks to hold it together. But it was still yummy!

Thai Chili Nuggets {Easy Lunch Box}

Easy Lunch Box with Thai Chili Nuggets from #EarthFare @ AVirtuousWoman.org #easylunchboxes

This week’s lunch box was all about the ease in easy! Sometimes you really just need {or want} something quick. Like really quick. Like I didn’t have to cook this quick. But, this lunch was delicious!

Easy Lunch Box

I packed this lunch in our set of Easy Lunch Boxes. Each week we take my 13 year old to the ice rink where she skates for some 5 or more hours at a time. And I pack a lunch for everyone who tags along. Usually her sisters come – despite the fact it can be a really long day. Today was no exception.

I love how convenient these lunch boxes are! And I’ve been using them for over a year now and they still look and work great!

This week we I packed food purchased from Earth Fare market – really one of my favorite places to shop. I love Earth Fare! Did you know kids eat free on Thursdays!?!

What I Packed

  • Thai Chili Mock Chicken Nuggets
  • Cranberry Quinoa Salad
  • Oriental Snap Peas
  • Hubert’s Half & Half Raspberry Lemonade Tea

So, while I don’t have a yummy recipe to share with you this week, that’s okay because mom’s every where can use a break from cooking every once in a while. Right? You can still feed your kids {and yourself} delicious food that is healthy too!

Ice Skating

Oh, and in case you’re interested – here’s my daughter Hannah practicing her Waltz Jump on the ice today!

Homemade Window Cleaner

Homemade Window Cleaner with Essential Oil @ AVirtuousWoman.org After a morning of cleaning the house – and windows – we’re watching The Fiddler on the Roof – such a good musical! We’re watching it on Amazon Prime Instant Video. If you’ve never seen it before, I just can’t recommend it enough. I watched it years and years ago and wanted to share it with my children now that they are older and can appreciate the story. I originally found this recipe at Life at Cobble Hill Farm. I love this recipe. It works well and smells  so good!
