Keep lunch simple with these homemade wraps - so versatile and delicious with any filling

CHICKPEA WRAPS

Say hello to your new favourite lunch! These wraps take two minutes to make and they kind of only have one ingredient (water and salt don't really count), which shows how simple they are. I've been making them constantly lately - you can fill them with whatever you like and they're perfect for wrapping up the night before and taking to work. I love them with avocado, hummus and some falafel - or try a crunchy filling, they pretty much go with anything. 

Makes 4.

Gluten free, dairy free & vegan

Ingredients

130g chickpea flour (aka gram flour)

250ml water

Sea salt

1 tsp olive oil for frying

Method

Add the water, chickpea flour and a good pinch of sea salt to your blender, then blend until smooth.

Heat some of the olive oil in a medium-sized non stick frying pan on medium-high heat. Pour in about a quarter of the chickpea mixture and swirl it around the pan to meet the edges. Once you've swirled it, cook for about 30 seconds until bubbles form in the middle, then flip and cook for another 30 seconds.

Repeat with the other three wraps.

Eat them hot or cold, filled with whatever you like.

FILL UP!

For the filling, I like loads of texture, whether it’s creamy hummus, soft avocado or crunchy slaw.  These wraps are also delicious warm, straight from the pan as tacos with Mexican fillings — think guacamole, refried beans and jalapeños.

EGG-CELLENT ALTERNATIVE

Egg-free omelette is quite the oxymoron but believe it or not it can be done, and it’s so delicious. Whether you’re vegan, trying to eat more plant-based meals or just out of eggs, give this simple recipe for two a try next time you’re making breakfast: Add 185ml of water to your blender with 130g of chickpea flour, 2 tablespoons of coconut yoghurt and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend until you have a smooth mixture, then pour half of the mixture into a hot pan with a little coconut oil. Let it cook for about 2 minutes, then add your fillings and fold it. Cook for another 2 minutes until the inside is set. You can find the recipe in more detail on thelittlegreenspoon.com
