It's a (simple, healthy) Wrap!
January 18, 2014

Since we’ve been gluten free and mostly package / processed food free, finding a good ‘healthy’ wrap without the obligatory additives and preservatives has been … tough!   I’ve been experimenting with a few different ingredients and this one with Arrowroot flour is fantastic,  it holds together well and doesn’t have an overpowering flavour, perfect for a Wrap (or Crepe)!   Incase you haven’t come across Arrowroot before;

  1. It is a starch obtained from the root stock of several different tropical plants, including Tapioca.
  2. It is mostly carbohydrate and has a very mild, neutral flavour.
  3. Nutritionally it’s claimed to be high in folate and B Vitamins and other important minerals and is often used as a replacement to gluten /wheat flours.

We all love this recipe mostly as a lunchtime wrap,  they are equally good as a sweet or savoury style crepe.  Enjoy!

Preparation:  20 minutes

Quantity:  approx. 10 x 14cm wraps

It's a (simple, healthy) Wrap!
Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp melted coconut oil (or ghee)
  • Update: 1 Tbsp of water makes the batter more spreadable / thin
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • If making wraps or crepes for a sweeter meal, add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk in the coconut oil & water if using.  
  2. Add the dry ingredients i.e. baking soda, arrowroot powder and salt—and whisk well to combine.
  3. In a small pan or crepe pan over medium heat, pour in just enough batter to almost cover the base of the pan and immediately roll it around to evenly coat the bottom.   Leave it for a couple of minutes until it just browns.  Flip and cook the other side, for another couple of minutes.
  4. Place on your plate, add your favourite fillings and… ‘It’s a wrap’!   We’ve been enjoying ham (nitrate free), haloumi with Summer tomatoes and home made mayonnaise – delicious!  Other ideas could be, Ricotta cheese with wilted spinach, avocado, your favourite dip or pesto with lamb or chicken etc.
  5. If saving for later, cool  and store in an airtight glass container, e.g. a pyrex container.

Notes

  • These are store in the fridge and  eat the next day.   They’re also great to be used in lunch boxes, filled with your kids favourite fillings.
  • Try these for breakfast with organic yoghurt or cream, with berries and your favourite alternative sweetener.  So Good.

How long will these last in the fridge & can you freeze them?

they are fine for a day or 2 Cass, keep them sealed in a glass storage container - altho best fresh they will last in the freezer for a month or so.. (think of it a bit like fresh (unadulterated) bread). Let me know how you go. Enjoy.
