Pinwheels are a classic appetizer and in this recipe they get a heatlhy makeover!
Ingredients:
4 whole wheat tortillas, 8-inch size
1/4 cup cream cheese, low fat or fat-free
12 slices lean turkey (smoked, turkey-ham)
8-12 spinach leaves, washed and dried
1/2 cup grated carrots
Directions:
1 Let the cream cheese come to room temperature. Whip with a mixer, or by hand, to make it easier to spread.
2 Using a spatula or knife, spread about 1 tablespoon cream cheese on each tortilla, making sure to reach the edges.
3 Place 3 slices of meat on each tortilla. Put several spinach leaves in the center of the tortilla and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of carrots.
4 Roll tortilla tightly; secure with a toothpick.
5 Cut the tortilla into pinwheels by cutting it in half first, then making bite-sized slices along the tortilla until you reach the end. Lay each piece cut-side down on a serving plate.
6 *Lower sodium by using low-sodium turkey and lower sodium tortillas.
7 ENJOY!
