Okay, so I’m a big fan of using leftovers to make something different yet just as great as the day or so before. I almost always make extra meat, sauce and veg so that I can use them later to create a whole host of creatively delish leftover dishes.
Here is a quickish lunch I threw together on the spur of the moment. I was damn hungry and could have just chowed down on the cold chicken and some lettuce, but what’s the fun in that? Plus these cassava wraps are dead easy and take hardly any time to kick out.
You can use any leftover meat you want and any veg as well. These ingredients are just what I had on hand to use at the time my hunger struck.
- ½ Cup Leftover chicken (shredded)
- ½ Sm Onions (sliced)
- 6 Gemini Mushrooms (julienned)
- ¼ Cup Chard, Swiss (shredded)
- ½ Tomato (sliced)
- 1 Clove Garlic, Fresh (minced)
- ¼ tsp Soy Sauce (naturally fermented, Gluten free – or Coconut Aminos)
- ¼ tsp Sesame oil
- Paleo Cassava Wraps
- 3 tbsp Cassava Flour
- 2 Eggs (beaten)
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp Coconut milk, Heavy Cream
- Water to make the batter just runny
- Whisk all of the batter ingredients in a large bowl until fully combined. You can use an emulsion hand mixer to make this easier and have an even smoother batter (don’t use a bowl though… Super Mess!!LOL).
- Heat a skillet to med high and wipe with an oiled clothe.
- Pour in about 4 – 6 oz of batter and quickly tilt the skillet around to spread the batter evenly. I guess if you have one, using a crepe setup would work to.
- Wait 1 minute them flip the wrap… wait 30 seconds and remove to a tray or plate for later
- Makes about 3-5 wraps depending on size.
- Heat the same skillet to med-high.
- Add in some kind of fat. I had some Schmaltz so used that and some butter.
- Toss the veg and garlic into the pan and sauté until wilting.
- Add in the other ingredients and heat through.
- Divide the filling evenly into as may portions as wraps.
- Lay a wrap onto a cutting board.
- Spoon in the filling and spread evenly across the wrap.
- Fold and roll the filling into the wrap snuggly… too tight and the filling will bust through. Too loose and the filling will fall out.
- Set aside until all the wraps have been rolled.
- Now your chance to be lame or fancy LOL
- Lame: Don’t cut them and go to town devouring them whole or even just cut in half.
- Fancy: Cut off the ends to square them up, (Yes eat those scraps now!), cut them in half, then cut those pieces diagonally and plate then standing up 😊
Some of you hardcore paleo types may be balking at my use of Soy Sauce. Well tough shit LOL! If you want, you can always sub in Coconut Aminos, but honestly, to my palette, they do not taste remotely the same. As well. The amount used here is negligible unless you have a soy allergy. Plus its fermented dammit!! Get over it 😊 and enjoy the damn recipe.
