Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 small carrot
  • 1 small red onion
  • ¼ bell pepper, red (your favourite colour)
  • 1 small handful spinach or similar
  • 1 thumb ginger, fresh (grated)
  • cup cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 3 tsp mustard (or try wasabi paste, but less!)
  • 2 wraps
  • salt and pepper to taste

Optional

  • ½ cup bean sprouts (they're really healthy! And they add a lovely crunch too)

Instructions

For the wrap:

  • Roast the sunflower seeds in a pan without any oil/fat until golden brown.
  • Peel and grate the carrots. Wash and dice the the bell pepper (get rid of the seeds and white bits).
  • Peel the onion and cut in thin rings. Wash and drain the spinach. Wash the bean sprouts with cold water and let them dry.

For the dressing:

  • Peel the ginger and grate it into a bowl. Add the cottage cheese, sour cream (or your vegan substitute), lemon zest and mustard and mix it well.
  • Spread the dressing mixture onto the wraps, stopping about 1cm from the edge. Lay out the spinach leaves on top.
  • Put the carrots, bell pepper, onions and bean sprouts in a wide line down the middle and sprinkle the roasted sunflower seeds on top.
  • Season with a dash of salt and pepper and fold the wraps a little on both sides, then at the bottom and roll it as tightly as possible (without squishing the insides out!).
  • Cut the wraps into halves and serve. Enjoy!
