Here in the Jackson house we're quite keen on eating wraps for lunch. They're just as versatile as a sandwich for filling. We usually have salami or ham or tuna in them along with cucumber and lettuce. We used to buy the pre-made wraps but at £1.80 for 8 they were more than we wanted to pay. Plus with them being bigger you end up with more plain wrap to eat when you fold them over.
So we decided to try making our own wraps.
The recipe is simple:
3 cups of flour (we usually do a mix of white and brown)
1 cup of warm water
1 tsp of salt
1/3 cup of oil
Also, you can add your own flavourings to the wrap. We've had mixed herbs, garlic and paprika before but you can use any herb or spice you like.
Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough and then cut it into 8 pieces. Flour a surface and then lightly knead then roll out each piece.
At first we used to try get our wraps circular like the ones we bought. But actually the oblong shape is much better to use and a lot easier to roll out. So now we embrace the weird shaped wraps we make. :D
Cook the wraps in a dry frying pan on a medium heat turning when one side is done. I NEVER flip wraps like this I'm just showing off for the camera!
The best wraps are always the ones we eat on wrap making day while they're still warm. Fill the top half of the wrap with your chosen filling and condiments, fold in half and enjoy :)
