Remember our antioxidant rich fruit of the week? Get ready to try a delicious snack using dried cranberries.
Note to the cook: Remember, cranberries are naturally tart fruits so companies will add a LOT of sugar when drying them, making them not so healthy anymore. So… when you pick up a bag of dried cranberries look for labels that say ‘reduced sugar’ or ‘50% less sugar’ to cut back. Trust me, they are still sweet and have just as good of a flavor!
Today I have a recipe that is great for after school snacks, lunch boxes, or even a nice appetizer for Thanksgiving Dinner! They are called cranberry feta pinwheels.
You will need: 1 block of cream cheese, a 5 oz bag of reduced sugar cranberries, 6 ounces of feta (I found a garlic and herb feta ended up being DELICIOUS), 4 wheat, tomato, or spinach tortillas, and 3 green onions, diced.
First: Combine all the ingredients (except the tortillas) and mix them up in a bowl.
Then spread ¼ of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll it up.
Wrap the rolls in either plastic wrap or aluminum foil and cool in the fridge for at least an hour (if you want it for lunch, make it the night before and pull out in the morning)
After the rolls have set, slice them until you have made all your pinwheels!
So simple, but so flavorful!
