Mushroom and halloumi wrap

Ingredients

Wraps – use whichever tortilla wrap you prefer. I used wholemeal wraps.

Mushrooms – either two large portobello mushrooms or a handful of smaller ones. Sliced.

Halloumi – half a block cut into thick strips

One spring onion – sliced

One small beetroot – sliced

Handful of spinach

Chilli flakes – or fresh chillies if you prefer

Parsely – fresh or dried

Extra virgin olive oil – I like to use the spray

Garlic mayo – you can use Greek yoghurt if you want to be extra healthy

Chilli sauce – anything goes really, Sriracha, Tabasco, Frank’s. I used Nando’s medium sauce

Method

1. Put the sliced mushrooms in a tray, spray with olive oil and sprinkle with parsely. Place under the grill on a medium heat. Give them a stir every five minutes or so.

2. Spray a frying pan with olive oil and add the halloumi, spring onion and chilli flakes, cook on a medium heat, stirring occasionally

3. In a bowl, mix some garlic mayo and chilli sauce. The ratio depends on how hot you can stand it!

4. Once the mushrooms are cooked, remove from the grill and place a wrap under the grill. It just needs a few seconds on each side to warm it.

5. Spread the chilli garlic mayo mix to cover the whole wrap, add the spinach leaves, halloumi mixture, mushrooms and beetroot.

6. Wrap it up and enjoy!

Hummus and falafel wrap

Ingredients

Wraps – any kind of tortilla wraps

Falafels – I bought mini ones from M&S but any falafels will work

Hummus – plain or flavoured

Handful of spinach

Chilli sauce – as per the recipe above, anything goes

Greek yoghurt

Mint – fresh or dried

Extra virgin olive oil – again, I’m a big fan of the spray

Method

1. Warm the tortilla wraps under a medium grill

2. Spread the hummus to cover the entire wrap, add a couple of sprays of olive oil and drizzle on some chilli sauce. Add the spinach.

3. Warm the falafels and break them up using a fork. I like to keep them quite chunky. Add to the wrap.

4. Spoon on some Greek yoghurt and sprinkle on the mint.

5. Wrap it up and take a bite!

Options

For both of these recipes, you can add any salad items – tomatoes, peppers, red onions or lettuce instead of spinach. If you want a non-veg version, swap the halloumi for grilled chicken. Try adding mashed avocado or chunky guacamole. Mix and match, experiment and go crazy lol. We hope you like it : )
