Monday night supper Mexican style...

Tonight for dinner I am encountering a Mexican theme, as it’s the start of the week after a day at work the last thing you want to do sometimes is head home and cook, however I have this one solved with my quick vegetable Mexican wrap… healthy style!


A toasted warm wrap, filled with stir fried Mediterranean vegetables with butter beans topped and baked with tomato sauce, pine nuts and melted mozerrella served with a light green salad and hummus.

You will need:

1 Aubergine
2 Courgettes
1 onion
1 pepper
50g Peas
3 wholemeal wraps (1 1/2 per person)
Low fat Mozzarella
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1/2 can of butter beans
25g pine nuts
Salad leaves
Salt, Pepper and chilli powder

In a saucepan heat the pan with some 1 calorie spray and infuse with rosemary

Take an assortment of vegetables I have used aubergine, courgette, peppers and onions and heat them in the saucepan

Mean while heat the grill and lightly toast some wholemeal tortilla wraps

Once warm to these add your cooked vegetable mixture

Roll the wraps and insert into a baking dish

Topping with chopped tomatoes, pine nuts and mozerella and bake until melted for around 10-15 minutes

Serve on a bed of salad with some hummus...

This recipe creates a health spin on mexican food!
