To save time, you can use bottled roasted red bell peppers.

Cooking Light MAY 2001

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 wrap and about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture)

Ingredients

  • 24 asparagus spears
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 8 (1-ounce) slices cooked turkey breast
  • 2 cups alfalfa sprouts

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

Snap off the tough ends of asparagus. Steam asparagus, covered, 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place bell pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil for 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 15 minutes; peel. Place the bell pepper, honey, juice, salt, and ground red pepper in a blender; process until smooth. Combine bell pepper mixture and mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Warm the tortillas according to the package directions. Spread 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture evenly over each tortilla. Layer each tortilla with 1 romaine leaf, 2 turkey slices, 1/2 cup sprouts, and 6 asparagus spears; roll up. Serve with remaining mayonnaise mixture.
