It’s easy to get stuck in a rut though and keep doing the same old thing with them. Tortilla wraps are so versatile, are just as delicious hot or cold and are a great base for vegetarian kids meals, so here are some of the various ways you can use them.
Hopefully they’ll inspire you with some other ideas too, which you can share with us all in the comments below!
1. Lunchbox wraps
Everyone will already be familiar with these . They make a nice change from sandwiches and you can fill them with whatever you or your children enjoy, whether that is salad, beans, cheese, quorn pieces or whatever. Burritos with rice and beans are filling, healthy and tasty too and wraps are an ideal way to use up leftovers from dinner, making them instantly lunchbox friendly!
There is a great recipe at We Don’t Eat Anything With A Face for child friendly enchiladas which is easily adapted to whatever ingredients you have available. This is one of my kids’ most loved meals.
3. Toasted Tortillas
Quesadillas are the most common type but you can make a toasted tortilla with any filling that you would enjoy in a toasted sandwich. Just sandwich the filling between a couple of tortilla wraps and either place in a large Panini maker or use a large flat pan and turn over once one side is done. You could also just use the grill if that’s easier for you.
4. Tortilla Pizza
These are ideal when you need something really quick and easy that kids enjoy. You can add whatever toppings your kids enjoy. Here’s a nice simple recipe for Skillet Tortilla Pizza from Simply Recipes.
5. Tortilla Stack
I first saw the idea for these in The Quorn Kitchen. Their version uses Quorn mince, but you can pretty much use any vegetarian Bolognese style sauce. It is made similarly to lasagne, layering the sauce, a handful of cheese and a tortilla wrap several times, then topping the final tortilla with more cheese and baking for a few minutes until the cheese melts.
So there you have it – 5 different ways to use tortilla wraps, and all of them vegetarian and child friendly! Do you have any other ideas you’d like to add to the list?
