Wraps have been around for a very long time. They may vary in names and appearance but they taste absolutely amazing. Besides, they are easy to make and can be eaten on the go.
But if you are still running out of ideas to make your own ‘deli wrap’ or a roll, don’t fret. We have some easy-peasy ideas for you - both vegetarian and non vegetarian using basic ingredients from your kitchen and even left over food!
Although you can find ready-made deli wraps in the market, you can make a more economical and healthier version at home using wheat flour. On to the recipes.
Vegetarian Deli wraps
Feta cheese wrap
Take a tortilla wrap or a deli wrap and lay it flat. Spread a generous layer or butter and then a layer of salad leaves - rocket/lettuce/iceberg lettuce etc along with sliced tomatoes. In the centre place crumbled feta cheese and sprinkle some salt and pepper. Roll the wrap and eat!
Non-vegetarian version - add leftover chicken by shredding it and throw it in with the salad leaves.
Avocado and tomato wrap
De-seed a ripe avocado and separate the peel. Chop it up or slice it -however you like. Slice the tomatoes and keep aside. On a flat wrap, spread a layer of cream cheese or just some plain cheese slices. In the centre place the avocado and tomato slices and roll into a wrap. You can heat this either on a pan or in the oven just until the cheese has melted.
Leftover caramelized onion and mushroom wrap
This is as easy as it gets. If you have some leftover caramelized onion and mushroom, use it as a lunch wrap the next day. On a flat wrap, spread a layer of cream cheese or just some plain cheese slices. Place the caramelized onion and mushroom in the centre and roll up the wrap. Heat this either on a pan or in the oven just until the cheese has melted.
Baked beans and onion
Spread a layer of mustard on the wrap and place a layer of chopped onion and coriander. Carefully place spoonfuls of baked beans (the tinned version) in the centre. Add more onion or coriander on top if you like and roll the flat bread.
Non vegetarian deli wraps
Cold cut wrap
On a flat bread, spread a layer of chilli sauce/sriracha/sweet and sour sauce. Place a layer of cheese spread or slices. Spread some salad leaves and lay sliced onion in the middle. Place salami slices (plain or spiced) in the middle and roll it up. Heat until cheese has melted.
This requires a little more preparation - just make a flat omelette using one egg and season with salt and pepper. Keep this aside. On a flat bread, place the omelette, some cheese slices, thinly sliced capsicum and onion. Add any sauce or ketchup and roll it up. Heat until cheese has melted and bite into the gooey egg-cheesy goodness.
