It’s Tomato Season! Make Yourself a BLT Sandwich or Burrito.

Hello Tomato Lovers!

September is the official tomato season. Here is a two-for-one recipe that will use your gorgeous peak-of-the-season tomatoes in two delicious and unique ways.

Feeling the need for a carb-less meal?— roll up our Tomato Gem Wrap with extra lettuce instead of rice for a “I can’t believe this has NO CARBS!” sandwich packed with crispy, salty bacon and juicy, sweet tomatoes. Add some creamy avocado for even more levels of yum.

For a heartier treat— roll cooked rice in your Tomato Gem Wrap and fill in with the classic BLT ingredients. All that flavor and satisfaction without the gluten, calories (tortillas: 225 vs.Tomato GemWrap:10) or carbs (tortillas: 37g vs. Tomato GemWraps: 5g) found in the typical tortilla wrap.

“There ain’t nothing in the world, that I like better- than bacon and lettuce and homegrown tomatoes…” except for wrapped in Tomato GemWraps!

Roll your own…
