Day 1 – Low Carb Rice Paper BLT Wrap
Welcome to Day 1 of my 15 day Easy Healthy Recipe Series!
Today, we’re kicking off with a mouthwatering food hack that will satisfy your cravings for a classic BLT sandwich while keeping those carbs at bay. Introducing our Super Easy Low Carb BLT Wrap, featuring… RICE PAPER! Rice paper has been an absolute trend on Tik Tok and IG and I can see why. Not only is it delicious and low carb, but it is so versatile. This is just one of probably a thousand ways to use rice paper in recipes. 🙂

Low Carb Rice Paper BLT Wrap
- 1 sheet rice paper
- 1 tbsp chili oil
- 1 egg
- 1 sprinkle green onions
- 2 lettuce leaves
- 4 slices tomato
- 2 pieces cooked bacon optional
- 3 tbsp guacamole or mashed avocado
- Prepare all your ingredients before you start cooking to ensure a smooth process. Cook the bacon if you haven't already and have it ready for assembly.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place the sheet of rice paper in the pan without any oil. Drizzle the chili oil on top, followed by cracking an egg onto the rice paper. Carefully mix the egg around and spread it evenly onto the rice paper. Sprinkle some green onions over the egg and let it cook until it reaches a semi-cooked state.
- Now comes the fun part! On the top half of the rice paper, layer the lettuce leaves, tomato slices, bacon (if using), and a generous amount of guacamole or mashed avocado.
- Gently fold the rice paper like an omelette, covering the toppings completely. Turn off the heat and transfer the Low Carb BLT Wrap to a plate. If you prefer, cut it into wedges like a quesadilla or fold it in half again to enjoy it as a wrap/sandwich.
- You're done! Enjoy!
This recipe is a fantastic way to enjoy the goodness of a BLT without compromising on your health goals.
Also, the pan I’m using is the Our Place Always Pan 2.0! It is a 10-in-1 piece of cookware that I use every day. This 2.0 version is also ACTUALLY non-stick so it’s a HUGE improvement from the 1.0! I highly recommend it. ??
