  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 10 leaves fresh spinach
  • 2 burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • homemade pesto mayonnaise spread (or store bought, whatever floats your boat)

For the homemade pesto mayo spread:

  • 1 cup fresh basil

First, make the homemade pesto mayonnaise:

Add all ingredients *accept for the mayonnaise* into a blender or food processor, pulse until completely blended. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of water and pulse once more to mix it in. Pour pesto mixture into a small bowl and add the mayonnaise. Mix thoroughly, place pesto mayo into the refrigerator. Note: If you can find pre-made pesto mayonnaise, skip this step and go for it!

Making turkey rolls ups for lunch

Now let’s make the turkey roll ups!

Open up the two tortillas onto a cutting board and spread a thin layer of pesto mayo onto each, covering the whole tortilla. Layer your spinach leaves, then turkey, then slices of avocado and roll the tortilla up into a tight wrap. Slice each wrap evenly into rolls and get them ready for those lunch boxes!
