It’s a wrap!
In the heat of summer large amounts of bread becomes less attractive. These three wrap ideas make lighter alternatives to hold tasty nutritious filling. They are all gluten free – some even grain free altogether.
Lettuce Leaf Wraps
Using the leaves of lettuce, Ice berg or Cos work well, makes a great alternative to bread for wrapping up tasty ingredients.
Nori Sheet Wraps
Using Yaki Nori Sea weed Sheets, make another, mineral rich, alternative to bread for wrapping up tasty ingredients. Try scrambled egg and avocado and toasted sesame seeds for nourishing fats and proteins.
These wraps are quick and simple to whip up and can be stored in the fridge in a sealed container for a few days. Wrap them around any sweet or savoury filling ideas that tickle your fancy, they are super versatile.
20g sesame seeds ground fine
20g sunflower seeds ground fine
A pinch sea salt
¼ tsp sumac
60g tapioca flour
6 tsp coconut oil or ghee
Whisk all the ingredients except the fat together in a large bowl, adding 2 tablespoons of water.
In a medium size non-stick pan (a well seasoned cast iron one is my favourite), heat 1 teaspoon of oil or ghee, tip the pan to coat the frying surface.
Pour in ¼ cup of the batter and tilt the pan around to spread the batter evenly over the surface.
Cook over medium heat until lightly golden on the underside, about 1-2 minutes.
Flip and cook on the other side until it looks the same, around 30 seconds.
Remove from pan and set aside.
Repeat with the remaining batter and fat.
Fill with your choice of salad, meat and spreads.
