I am always looking for a quick and easy supper that everyone will like and also involves each person taking a turn to put their particular speciality together. Wraps are fabulous for filling with anything and everything – elaborate things at the beginning of the month and lettuce and tomato at the end of the month. These make fabulous party food, kids love them – I think they love being in control of what they pick and choose. There are parts of the world that live on heaps of meals just like these everyday and they should definitely be on your list of must know recipes. This is what we are aiming for:
I haven’t blogged this recipe before because I just assumed they were a staple in everyone’s life until a friend asked me how to make them. I used to buy them pre-made from the store but they are frightfully expensive – which is ridiculous when you consider what they are made of and how easy they are to make.
Let’s Meet The Players:
This recipe makes about 16 wraps… maybe more than most families require – you can easily halve it. Don’t make more and store them because they are only nice fresh. Here you go, these are all rough ingredients, since I am not the most accurate chef in the world!
- 4 cups of flour
- pinch of salt
- 125 g of butter
- 1 to 1.5 cups of warm water
Let’s Play The Game:
- Step 1: Pop your flour, and pinch of salt into the bowl.
- Step 2: Chop your butter into pieces and toss into the flour.
- Step 3: Add most of the water, hold some back because you don’t want your dough to get too sticky.
- Step 4: Zap until you have a springy dough. If it is too stiff then add a bit more water, until you get it just springy and light.
- Step 5: Pop your dough onto a floured surface and cut it into enough pieces for the number of wraps you are after. We cut ours into eight and then cut those bits in half again.
- Step 6: Roll your dough out into a thin circle the size of your pan. Keep your surface well floured.
- Step 7: Wipe your pan with a roller towel dipped in oil. And place your rolled out wrap in a hot, dry-greased pan. It will bubble up almost instantly and then turn it over for a quick brown on the other side. Really they take less than a minute to cook.
And your wrap is done!
Now comes the fun… And I really just put out a bit of everything, Whatever salad type goodies I have in the fridge and add a pile of cheese for those that won’t eat chicken strips.
Let everyone layer and add whatever they like to their wrap.
Roll it up, munch it up and you are done!!!
I hope you enjoy these!
