Most days and for days in a row, my kids want sandwiches for lunch. Simple old marmite will do, they’re not fussed. Due to this insistence I stopped offering toast as a breakfast option because I didn’t like the idea that they were just living on bread.
These wraps (which obviously still contain a bread-like component) are a perfect way to get a bunch of sneaky veges into your little ones, and what’s more, they’re a lunchtime treat I am also happy to enjoy.
I make them with whatever I have on hand at the time: ham, bacon, salami, a tin of salmon or tuna, rocket or lettuce chopped finely, tomato relish instead of the mustard etc. Feel free to get creative with filling combinations your family will enjoy.
Versatile Lunchtime Wraps
1 Carrot, grated
1/2 cup Cheese, grated
50 grams ham, roughly chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T Mayonnaise (I like Best Foods)
2 T Avocado, mashed
Salt & pepper, to taste
Mix all ingredients, except tortillas, in a medium sized bowl. Place 2 T of mixture in the centre of a tortilla and roll as you would a burrito, tucking up the bottom first. Or, roll and cut into small sushi sized bites.
