1-2 tablespoons cream cheese

8-inch whole-wheat tortilla

1-2 ounces thinly sliced meat (salami, steak, cooked chicken or turkey, or deli meats, such as ham or prosciutto)

Spread the cream cheese evenly over one side of the tortilla. Be sure to spread the cream cheese all the way to the edge, as this helps seal the roll shut and keep it from unwrapping. Arrange the meat (and any vegetables you want to add) in an even layer over the tortilla. Be sure to leave about 1 inch of cream cheese exposed along the edges.

Roll the tortilla and fillings into a tight bundle. If the tortilla won't stay sealed shut, spread just a bit more cream cheese along the edge to help glue it tight. Use a serrated knife to cut the roll into 1-inch rounds.

Serves one.

Cook's notes: You can accompany this with containers of honey mustard or barbecue sauce for dipping the "sushi." Want to take this in a different direction? Substitute peanut butter for the cream cheese and a banana for the meats. Sprinkle in a few mini chocolate chips, then roll and slice.
