Desperate Spinach

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by grrltrouble

came home from work starving with no good ideas. when i looked in the fridge, it was full of vegetables bought on an optimistic trip to the store, and then ignored. the two (why?) bags of spinach i had were threatening a slimey protest if i didn't use them soon. wanted to write this down so i don't forget it next time i'm in a similar situation. i have totally guessed on measurements.

Super-easy to throw together, and pretty good for you, to boot -- what's not to love? I'll definitely be making this again, but I'll probably leave out the lemon zest. It wasn't bad, but I just found it to be a bit too prominent in this for my tastes. I made this in the order given, but I allowed the spinach to cook for a bit because I prefer it more wilted than crunchy. I also added extra feta crumbles to it after I put the mixture in the wrap (love, love, love spinach/feta/tomato together!). Oh, and my tortilla was whole grain instead of plain flour. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '10
