Beetroot Wraps w Greens & Red Cabbage

Beetroot Wraps w Greens & Red Cabbage
Wraps are great meals at any time of the day and the possibilities are endless. Here's one of my favourites 🙂
Prepared by:
Cuisine: vegan
Recipe type: Wrap
Serves: 2
Prep time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • about half a cup of baba ghanoush
  • red cabbage, chopped, ¾ cup
  • ½ avocado
  • half a small onion
  • rocket leaves, as many as you like
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts/seeds
  • dash of olive oil, optional
  • salt & pepper
To make wraps from scratch (about 6) you need:
  • 1 cup of w/m flour (I use organic spelt)
  • 1 cup of white flour (ditto)
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • juice of one medium size beetroot, and top up with hot water to ¾ cup
To do
To assemble:
  1. spread the baba ghanoush on your wrap, chop onion & cabbage, and arrange everything else on the wrap, a bit off centered
  2. roll up and enjoy 🙂
To make wraps:
  1. mix your dry ingredients (if lumpy, then sieve). I use a food processor.
  2. slowly add in oil & water/beetroot mixture
  3. mix till it is a nice dry ball - if too sticky, add flour
  4. let the dough sit in a warmish spot under a tea towel, for abt 20 minutes
  5. divide in 8 pieces, let sit for 20 minutes again
  6. on your work surface, sprinkle some flour. Put a ball of dough in the middle, flatten with your hands, then use a rolling pin to roll out thin. Always roll from the middle to the sides. keep sprinkling with flour, turn over once. If you don't sprinkle enough flour, it will stick to the work surface and you'll be annoyed!
  7. heat a skillet, nice and hot, no oil
  8. when hot, put your wrap in the skillet.
  9. when bubbles appear, give it another 10 seconds, then turn over
  10. another 10 seconds, and done!
    (I keep a plate with a tea towel ready, where the wraps go when done. Leftover wraps you can put in a plastic bag with moist to wet kitchen paper, they will stay nice and pliable. In case they are dry, the moist kitchen paper will fix that. )

Raw Cucumber & Avocado Soup w Capers



Raw Cucumber & Avocado Soup w Capers
This is a lovely, delicate soup, served cold. Although made with avocado, it is not heavy at all.
Prepared by:
Cuisine: raw & vegan
Recipe type: soup
You need
  • ½ tall cucumber, chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • 1 heaped tsp of fennel seed
  • 1 pinch of mild chilli powder
  • juice & zest of ½ lime
  • juice & zest of ½ lemon
  • 10 fresh basil leafs
  • pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of capers (or more, but it shouldn't become a caper soup 🙂 )
  • optional: ½ tbsp of Smoky Toasted Coconut Flakes, or plain toasted coconut flakes.
To do
  1. put everything except for the last two items in the blender, and whizz until it is a nice fluffy soup
  2. taste and tweak
  3. cool in fridge
  4. when you serve, top with capers, an extra basil leaf and coconut flakes.
If you want to make toasted coconut flakes: just toss some flakes in a dry hot pan and stir, they will toast pretty quickly. Once off the heat they will continue to crisp.
Here's a recipe for baked smoky flakes, and here's one for raw smoky flakes.
