And That's A Wrap....

Yum - is that a bit cliche on a food blog?

well if so I'm sunk because these wraps are....



I really, really, REALLY fancied a wrap for lunch last week but didn't have any shop bought tortillas in the house.
Deciding that they couldn't be that hard to make I set to & found that the recipe is so easy! Basically just flour & water!

And they were soooo good we haven't stopped making them for our lunches since!

(Makes 6)
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 large pinch chilli flakes (optional)
150ml warm water

First make up your dough - sieve the flour & salt into a bowl; add the chilli flakes & then the water.

Bring it all together until it forms a soft dough and then leave it to rest, in the fridge, for about 20 minutes.

Remove from the fridge & form into 6 small balls.

Roll them out into thin rounds

Heat a griddle, or heavy based pan, to high heat - do not oil

When hot - place your wrap on

When it starts to lift & brown flip it over

The wrap should start to puff up as it cooks.

When done place between the layers of a folded t-towel to keep the steam in -it also keep them soft whilst you cook the other.
Keep an eye on your pan - you will need to keep adjusting the heat so the pan doesn't get too hot - the flour will start to burn & flavour your tortillas if it gets too high & it's sometimes a good idea to wipe off your griddle, as you go, to remove any excess flour.

Once all have been cooked let them cool slightly and then add the fillings of your choice.

as you can see we had a little mayonnaise; some onion marmalade;  spinach leaf; avocado & goats cheese in this one

But we have also tried humus & salad, a mexican bean pate (I loved - Andrew not so sure!) and sauteed mushrooms & spring onion. In all cases I spread a little mayonnaise and maybe some chilli sauce on the wrap before adding any other filling.

Be creative the choice is yours..............
