Make your own wraps! Cheap and quick


Wraps are popular and are a nice way to make yourself a healthy lunch or snack. Now I know you can buy wraps in the supermarket – even gluten free ones – but they can be a bit pricey and cardboard-like. So why not make your own wraps! It’s cheap and quick, especially when you make a stack and freeze some for later. I tried out this recipe for you with buckwheat flour, but you can also use standard gluten free flour, spelt or wheat when you’re okay with gluten.

This recipe is basically a crepe – and what we call a ‘pannenkoek’ in Dutch. That means it’s larger and thinner than English pancakes. Plus they’re and pliable and that means you can use them as a wrap! I used buckwheat flour and milled my own with my grain mill. Milling your own gives you a flour that is always fresh! Plus you can make flour from any whole grain in your pantry.

Buckwheat is often used for pancakes and even though it contains the word ‘wheat’ it’s actually gluten free. How confusing!

How to make the wraps

Ingredients for 4 wraps

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour (you can also use gluten free flour, spelt or wheat)
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened plant based milk or cow’s milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Oil, butter or ghee for frying

How to do it

  • Mix flour and salt
  • Whisk plant milk, egg and half the water together
  • Make a well in the flour and pour in the wet mixture bit by bit while whisking until you have no lumps. Then add the rest of the water
    • or chuck everything in your blender!
  • The batter should be quite thin but not completely runny
  • Rest the batter for 10 minutes or up to 12 hours
  • Heat a frying pan and add some oil, butter or ghee
  • Stir the batter and pour half a ladle full into the frying pan. Move the pan in a rolling motion so the batter covers the whole surface
  • Cook over a medium heat for 2–3 minutes as the surface starts to change colour and the edges start to lift.
  • Turn the wrap over and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer to a plate and cover and repeat with the remaining batter.

Fill your wrap!

I like to start with a sticky foundation like hummus – this works as a glue and helps to keep everything in. Then add some lettuce or other greens, chicken, pesto is nice, avocado is great – you can go wild, but don’t overload them! Here’s how you can fold your wrap.

Ever wondered how you would feel…
