I had a day worth of lectures today, and let me tell you, I’m no longer equip with the attention span needed to sit in a lecture theatre and listen to 7 hours of talking. I’m sure at one point I was… I remember a time where I was quite a dedicated student. Now all I want to do is put things into practice and learn with my hands on. I miss spending time with kids encouraging them to stand up tall or teaching them to move in new ways. I miss musical play and pretending we are rolling over a sea whilst transporting elephants to their homes. It’s not for long I know. In 6 short months I will hopefully be starting a job doing just that. However, this food blog is about the way I made it through these 7 hours of lectures- by thinking about what I was going to cook for dinner. I considered a tuna salad, but too boring. I thought about miso soup with tofu and seaweed, but not filling enough. When we had a lecture on dietetics which mentioned fatty acids I considered atlantic salmon with a balsamic reduction, or sandwiches with a lemon cream cheese with capers and smoked salmon- but I wasn’t in a fishy mood. And then I hit it- a lamb and tzatziki wrap. Now it’s not true tzatzki- I took a few million liberties, but it’s lovely all the same- just a little messy to eat!!! Next time I’ll add dill (thanks Master Chef) And I forgot to take photos because I was HUNGRY and all that was left was a plate! My own recipe below.
Lamb and Tzatziki inspired Wrap
- 100g lamb, diced
- 1/4 cup Greek yoghurt
- 1 small Lebanese cucumber
- squirt of lemon juice
- Ground cumin
- Salt to taste
- 1 tomato
- 2 wraps
- Put the lamb on a medium heat on a non-stick frying pan
- While the lamb is cooking, mix the greek yoghurt, cumin, salt and lemon juice.
- Dice the cucumber and add to the yoghurt mixture.
- Slice the tomato and lay on the wraps.
- Place the lamb along the tomato and pour yoghurt mix over.
- Wrap and enjoy!
Delicious! I wish I could make the dressing thicker but I’m not sure how… I shall experiment 🙂
