I’m enjoying playing around with different fillings for wraps. If you’re tired of having bread everyday, try breaking the monotony with some wraps. The fillings are limitless, just get your creativity juices flowing.

Equipment

Instructions

  1. Get your ingredients together. These include; 5 Wholemeal wraps (homemade/shop bought)
    300 g beef
    600 ml water
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    2 cloves garlic, whole
    1/2 small cucumber, sliced

  2. Put the meat in a pot, ad water and bring to the boil then reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Add garlic, soy sauce and salt to the pot. Gently simmer until the beef is very tender.
  3. Shred/ pull apart the beef using the forks. Set aside and allow to cool.
  4. To assemble the wrap, spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise onto the wrap. Put your cooled shredded beef at the centre of your wrap.
  5. Add the lettuce, cucumber, onion and cherry tomatoes. Season with a salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Begin folding your wrap. To do this, fold the left and right sides of the wrap over into the middle. Starting from the bottom end, fold the wrap tightly to the other end.
  7. Cut the wrap in half and your wrap is ready! Repeat process for the remaining wraps.

If preparing your own wraps from scratch. Follow this recipe;

Ingredients

  • 3 cups plain/ brown flour
  • 1 tsp  baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Sift flour, salt and baking into a bowl. Give a quick whisk until evenly combined.
  2. Make a well in the middle. Add oil and water. Mix until dough comes together.
  3. Lightly flour working area and knead dough until smooth.
  4. Divide dough into equal portions. Flatten each portion then cover with cling wrap or a damp towel and let it rest for 15min.
  5. After resting time, heat pan.
  6. Lightly flour working area again and roll each portion into a rough circle using a rolling pin.
  7. Cook each wrap until brown spots begin to appear underneath (about 1 min).
  8. Flip the wrap and allow the other side to cook for about 30 seconds. (Do not overcook the wrap. It should remain soft and pliable but not doughy. If you overcook it, it will break when you’re trying to fold.)
  9. Stack your wraps in a wide dinner plate and wrap it up with cling film until ready to use
