I love a wrap, it’s easy, quick and it tastes good, all wins in my book. I made these wraps the other day though a little differently than usual, and they were the best I’ve ever had. Even Rich said they were the best I’ve ever made. I thought I’d share the instructions behind it, I don’t measure anything unless I’m specifically making a recipe for the blog, so just make it your own and get a bit creative!
Being vegan, the main base of my wraps is usually veg. I chopped an onion, and a bit over half of red, green, and yellow peppers, then put them in a pretty heavy bottom pan with a bit of oil, on a medium heat. I waited for everything to get a bit soft, then added a good bit of paprika, some garlic powder, salt, pepper, onion powder, cumin, mixed herbs and chilli flakes. I’d usually add a good bit of tumeric too, but I’ve run out.
I cooked some Fry’s chicken pieces, which I did a review of here, and made up my wraps with the veg, chicken, some mayo and some nutritional yeast. Usually I’d just roll it up and that be the wrap sorted, but I decided to get a lil fancy and it really paid off.
I melted a little bit of vegan butter, added all the herbs and spices I put in with the veg, and brushed it on top of the wraps before putting them in the oven.
They came out with a good crunch, but not so much that it snaps when you bite into it. The butter added a richness they don’t usually have, though it’s not something I’d add too often, and the herbs and spices on the outside added an extra explosion of all the flavours.
This is definitely already a dish somewhere, likely much better than mine, but I’m currently unaware of it. I still don’t quite feel comfortable saying I’ve come up with it or it’s my idea, but it’s a bloody good way to make wraps, and I strongly recommend you try it out with your favourite fillings!
