Discovery Wrapbreads

We often eat fajitas in our house and I'm always amazed at the way 5-year-old Juliette will wolf down red and green peppers, onions, tomatoes and spicy chicken, all ingredients that she doesn't usually like, just because it's all disguised in a tortilla and/or because it's so much fun eating a rolled up wrap with her fingers !

Well, the new Discovery wrapbreads have been an absolute godsend for using up the leftover Christmas turkey in innovative and tasty ways, and best of all, they're so quick and easy to make. They are really versatile and you can just let the kids get on with it and make their own wraps so that they can tailor it to their own individual tastes. Juliette's favourite is a wrap filled with turkey, cucumber, cheese and tomato ketchup. (She says it's delicious, I just take her word for it !). 9-year-old Sophie prefers a wrapbread thinly spread with cheese spread then filled with turkey, ham, cheese, lettuce and cherry tomatoes. I loved a mayonnaise-spread wrap with turkey, lettuce, cucumber and pickled beetroot.

But you can also be a lot more adventurous with them. Juliette wanted to try a sweet one and sampled a Nutella and banana white wrapbread which we all had a taste of and it worked really well. You can also make a tasty hot snack by stuffing a wrap with ham and grated cheese and zapping it in the microwave for 1 minute.

They freeze really well and can be defrosted individually as you need them within about 30 seconds. You can also make impressive looking lunchbox snacks by tightly rolling a filled wrapbread then cutting it into slices so that they look like Swiss roll slices. They look so pretty that kids will happily eat things they don't usually like.

I'd only ever tried plain white tortillas but these Discovery wrapbreads come in several varieties - multiseed, white, wholemeal or white plus (with added fibre) - which add even more versatility. They seem much softer and easier to roll than my usual brand (which sometimes dry out and crack when I try to roll them) so I'll definitely be switching to this brand from now on. The kids have made me promise that I'll use them in their lunchboxes in place of their usual sandwiches so that they don't go soggy (and so that they can show off to their friends about having such an artistic lunch !).
