Sometimes you just need something really light to tide you over until you have a full meal.


Today's post is all about a simple snack or lunch you can make in a pinch!  MGG is Persian so we always have Lavash around the house.  Lavash is an unleavened flatbread that is thin and soft.  It's a staple in the Persian diet and has become a staple of mine as well.  We are using Lavash today to make quick Cucumber and Cream Cheese Lavash Wraps.

You can find Lavash in most grocery stores but if you can't,  then substitute with a tortilla or something like Flatout wraps,  but note the texture will be slightly different.

We tend to make wraps with Lavash as it is a good vessel because it is a large rectangular shaped bread that is thin and light.  Low in carbs,  they come in white or wheat varieties.

These Cucumber and Cream Cheese Lavash Wraps morphed out of two favorite dishes.  An English cucumber sandwich, and a Middle Eastern snack of Lavash, tomato, cucumber, and feta.  Combined we have our light and tasty wraps!

This delicious little wrap is so easy to make it really isn't a recipe.  More like a preparation guide.  To make them stand out in flavor be sure to use quality ingredients. 3 ingredients (Lavash, cream cheese, and cucumbers) to heaven on a plate!  Get a good cream cheese.  If you like a flavored one pick one that will enhance the cucumbers such as chive and onion, or garden vegetable.  For the cucumbers make sure to get either Persian or English (hot house) cucumbers.  They are both crispy and taste fresh and light in this dish.   Then on to making the wraps.  All you have to do is a little slicing with the cucumbers and serve and eat!  Can't be more simple but is oh so satisfying.  Hope you try this soon!
