This is a Recipe (what's this)


Great for a party. It's actually something low fat to munch on! Great for a party. It's actually something low fat to munch on!


    • 4 whole wheat tortillas
    • 1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
    • 8-12 spinach leaves, washed and dried
    • 1/2 cup grated carrots


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. 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.

Serves 4.

    This recipe is fast and tastes great. Instead of plain cream cheese, I use fat free veggie flavored and a slice of turkey or chicken lunchmeat. - 6/19/09

    This was a big hit at a Christmas Party, however, I put the carrots on the cream cheese and then the spinach. This gives the carrots something to adhere too and they do not fall out when your guests pick them up to eat. It also was very good with some finely chopped jalapeno chiles in them. - 1/19/09

    This recipe gives a nutritiouts and low cal alternative to one with white tortillas and gobs of cream cheese. Mixing it up with salsa, thinly sliced tomatoes, onion or whatever chopped fruit or vegetables (just a little) gives endless possibilities. Great recipe! Thanks! - 6/19/09
