….Or naan breads or pittas or whatever you would like to use them as!
Before you ask “Whats wrong with the ones I buy in the store”? – There is nothing wrong with store bought wraps or naans – we all need a little help when trying to save time!!! In fact, most of the time I buy my wraps too. But when the kids are going through phases of fussiness, there is nothing like cooking from scratch to get them interested in their meals.
With that being said, even with little time, these are the easiest little treats to make and there is nothing like fresh bread to fill the house with the aroma of deliciousness. All you need for this recipe is a large bowl, flour (I used self raising today), olive oil and a pinch of salt, oh yes, and a jug of water.
4 cups of flour,3 cups of water
6 tablespoons of olive oil
pinch of sea salt.
Mix the flour and salt in a largebowl. Add the water and the olive
Lay the rolled dough onto the pan and cook to the same degree you might cook a pancake. You will see the dough formbubbles, once this happens, turn the wrap and cook the other side.
Other options include smashed avocado and steak strips OR Halloumi cheese, sliced beetroot and coriander pesto. Alternatively, use these like a naan bread to scoop up curry or chilli. If your kids (or indeed your husband/wife) are anything like mine, they will love eating anything that they can scoop up with their hands. This is a really versatile dough that will go well with many flavours – try adding basil, coriander/coriander seed/chilli/olives or fennel seeds to the mix for a variation on flavours. Give them a go in the school lunches and give the kids a selection of fillings to construct their own sandwiches.
