Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 small carrot (grated)

  • 1 handful cheese grated

  • 1 handful cucumber cut into strips

  • 1 flour tortilla

  • 1/2 handfuls raisins

Method

  1. Smother the wrap in mayo - thinly but to the edges to make it stick.
  2. Sprinkle with the carrot, cheese and raisins
  3. Pop cucumber strips in the middle.
  4. Roll up, tucking in the sides halfway through and slice the roll in half on a slight diagonal.
    Alternatively fold one triangle bit in and work around folding section by section, overlapping so that you end up with an origami type star. In our house this rather uneven attempt at a star shape is known as a space ship, hence the silly name of Space Invaders Wraps.

Handy Hint

Make sure you reseal your tortilla wrap packet if not using them all at once as they dry out within an hour or so. They will keep better in the fridge.
These are great as a change in a lunch box instead of endless sarnies. Cool way to get kids to eat raw veg. Particularly the carrot as mine never notice it mixed in with the cheese.

    Cheap, fairly healthy and easy to adapt and use up different veg and fillings. Grated apple with grated cheese is nice too. My husband likes olives and hoummous with his. DD1 likes a little goats cheese added into hers rather than the mayo.
