Mushroom and ham fold-overs
Whether you like them raw or cooked, mushrooms are brimming with protein, B vitamins, and minerals. Low in calories, these famous fungi are available year-round. So why not choose one of the popular edible mushroom varieties -- oyster, porcini, portobello, shiitake, morel, or white -- to include in your next meal plan.
Prep: 25 minutes Oven: 375°F.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 large red or green sweet pepper, seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons snipped fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 8-ounce can pizza sauce
4 oval multigrain wraps
6 ounces thinly sliced low-sodium cooked ham, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese or reduced-fat mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and sweet pepper; cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in oregano.
2. Meanwhile, spread some of the pizza sauce on one side of each wrap, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Divide the chopped ham among wraps, arranging it on top of the sauce on half of each wrap. Top ham with mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold wraps in half. Place on a large baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through. Makes 4 servings.
