Tessa and I have in recent months fostered a love for Satellite’s rabbit wraps. Though it always is incredibly difficult to justify paying $5.50 for some vegetables encased in a tortilla, we have faithfully forked over the money for the better part of the spring semester while complaining about it the entire time.
I have more than a slight hunch that they infuse the dressing with some crack-like substance because no matter how many times I tell myself that I refuse to pay for another one, my will power is absolutely diminished by the time lunch time rolls around and I find myself 9 dollars poorer (after mandatory additional coffee and tip) and once again ashamed that I paid such extravagant prices for something I could so easily make.
So, seeing as it is now summer and time is more readily available. I am no longer constrained to prioritizing convenience over all else–and therefore my first culinary mission was deemed to be the replication of this particular wrap.
The first step was to look up the ingredients used in the wrap, located on the Satellite website.
Next, necessary modifications were determined–lemon dressing to replace the pomegranate, omission of sesame seeds, and apples instead of jicama. Mainly, these modifications occurred due to the availability of products at Trader Joe’s. Post TJ’s frolicking session (which is usually a bi-weekly event at the very minimum) I had all the ingredients.
Finally, Operation Reconstruction officially commenced.
Massage the kale with the juice of two lemons and 2 TBSP of olive oil, set aside.
Chop half of one apple, half of one roasted red pepper, and a handful of (pre) shredded carrots
Smear hummus on a tortilla
Layer kale on tortilla
then your chopped ingredients
don’t forget the artichoke hearts!
roll up and enjoy!
little bit of advice: buy tortillas large enough to hold all of your ingredients!
but if you fail to do so, as i did, you have no choice but to get another tortilla and eat it quesadilla style (which, actually, is quite awesome and some might say preferable from the start!)
put any leftover vegetables into Tupperware for future rabbit wrap assemblage ;)
The best part of all, is that the ingredients used to make numerous rabbit wraps all added together come out to be as much as a single lunch at Satellite so not only can you easily customize your own wrap but it is freaking cheap too (leaving you more money for wine, of course! I have priorities..).
