Chop, bake and wrap. That’s all it takes to make this delicious high-protein halloumi wrap recipe. Only 20 minutes of prep time is needed—even less if you’re a dab hand with a kitchen knife—and then 20 minutes in the oven.
The recipe is taken from Myprotein’s first recipe book Protein Plates, which contains 60 recipes from Myprotein’s extensive online library, all of which are high in protein. It also has a substantial serving of carbohydrates which is the other essential macronutrient to consume post workout (you can find out why from registered associate nutritionist Georgina Camfield’s guide to what to eat after a workout). This recipe is also packed with veg, making the wraps an ideal healthy option to have in your gym bag to wolf down after a lunch-break workout.
High-Protein Halloumi Wrap Recipe
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- Place the pepper, courgette and red onion on a baking tray and sprinkle with oil, salt and oregano. Mix with your fingers or a spatula to make sure everything is evenly coated, then cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, slice the halloumi about a centimeter thick and set aside.
- Place the hummus into a small bowl and loosen slightly with a splash of water—this makes it easier to spread evenly.
- When the vegetables have been in the oven for 10 minutes, add the halloumi to the tray. Return to the oven to roast for a further 10 minutes.
- Warm the tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
- Spread around 1-2 tablespoons of hummus onto a wrap, then add a quarter of the roasted veg, halloumi and a handful of spinach or salad leaves. Make a tight wrap by folding over two opposite sides of the tortilla first, and then rolling up from the bottom. Repeat to make 4 wraps in total.
- Slice diagonally into halves and either wrap in foil or place into a container.
