BELL PEPPER WRAPS

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 large wholegrain tortilla wraps, ½ cup hummus, 1 red bell pepper, 1 cup of spinach, ¼ cup of feta cheese

Method

  • Spread each tortilla wrap with ¼ cup of hummus, leaving approximately ½ inch border around the edge.

  • Chop the bell pepper and divide evenly between the wraps.

  • Down the centre of the wrap, add the pepper, spinach and feta cheese

  • Fold the top and bottom edges of the wrap over, rotate the tortilla and roll up from the bottom.

  • Cut each wrap in half and serve!

  • Additions include tomato salsa or red onion.

Note: Tea and coffee contain tannins, which reduce the amount of iron absorbed from food. Avoid drinking tea or coffee with a meal (wait half an hour or so).
