Sweet Potato Wrap

This is the most deluxe and delicious recipe for use of Thanksgiving leftovers - that makes them not taste like Thanksgiving at all.  It is so fantastic and you are going to love it so much, you are going to be just like me and making it throughout the year.  It is also a great way to serve sweet potatoes that isn't too "sweet".  And the sweet potato spread would be fantastic on lots of other wraps and sandwiches - I'll be honest, after we had our wraps, I ate the "spread" the next day plain and it was super yummy! I tell you all my secrets. 

Here is the recipe  First make your spread and set it aside to "cool" if you made it with a hot potato. If you are using a potato that you cooked previously then you can move right along to assembling your wrap. 

sweet potato sandwich wrap


1 medium sweet potato
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon basil

Wrap Ingredients:
4 10 inch flour tortillas
8 slices turkey breast
1 large ripe tomato, thinly sliced
1 avocado, pitted and sliced

(or anything else you can think of - radishes, shredded carrots, sprouts, tuna,..... apple slices. 

Boil sweet potato until softened. Remove skin and mash the potato in a bowl. Stir in garlic, lemon juice and seasonings and set aside to cool. Spread cooled mixture on each tortilla. 

Evenly distribute toppings on each tortilla and roll up to make wraps.

I added tomatoes to mine, but Joseph had his without, because he is not a raw tomato fan. 

Lots of yummy avocado, because.... avocado is  YUM!

Fold up like an envelope - we didn't even bother to roll ours we were so hungry. In fact, the picture in this photo was in danger of being chomped off I was so ravenous to get to mine.

These are HEAVENLY!  I made a few extra for lunches the next day, I just wrapped them up and then rolled the whole thing in plastic wrap and popped them into the fridge. They were even better the next day - if that is possible.
