Lebanese Grilled Chicken Shawarma Wraps with Micro Coriander

These Lebanese-inspired wraps feature tender grilled chicken shawarma, wrapped in warm wraps with fresh vegetables, creamy tahini sauce, and garnished with micro coriander for a burst of freshness and nutrition.



Nutritional Benefits: 


Grilled chicken provides protein, while salad vegetables offer vitamins and minerals. Tahini sauce adds healthy fats. Micro herbs add extra nutrients, making these wraps not only flavourful but also nutritious.


Coriander microgreens are rich in vitamins, particularly vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which is essential for immune function and collagen synthesis. They also contain significant amounts of vitamin K, important for blood clotting and bone health. These microgreens provide minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron, which are vital for various bodily functions including bone health, muscle contraction, and oxygen transport in the blood.**


Coriander microgreens contain antioxidants like beta-carotene and lutein/zeaxanthin, which help protect cells from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.**
