For the wrap:
- 150g gluten free all purpose organic flour
- ¾ tsp xanthan gum
- ½ cup of warm water
- 2 tbsp beetroot powder
For the filling:
- 150g organic Brussels sprouts
- 1 clove garlic
- 4 tbsp cranberry sauce – from the recipe
- 20g chestnuts
- 30g fresh organic spinach
- Orange zest
For the Dressing:
- 3 tbsp organic tahini
- 4 tbsp water
- 1 organic lemon (juiced)
- Pinch of Himalayan salt
Pre-heat oven to 175°C /350 F
Cut the ends of the Brussels sprouts and chop in half lengthways. Put into a baking tray and add the finely diced garlic. Roast for 25 minutes.
To make the wraps, weigh out the flour and xanthan gum and mix together. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and pour in the warm water and mix together until it makes adough. Add the beetroot powder and kneed into the dough on a floured surface - you don’t want to mix too much if you want the marbled effect when rolled out.
Sprinkle the surface with some more flour and cut the dough into 4 identical sized pieces. Roll out each one till about 2mm thick – then thinner the better.
Put a non-stick frying pan onto a high heat. When the pan is very hot, wipe it with oil (this is just for a coating - make sure there are no blobs anywhere) then put the rolled out dough into the pan and leave to cook for about 1 minute on either side – it will start to create little bubbles and brown. Take off the heat and repeat with the other rolled out dough.
To make the dressing put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together with a fork – if it looks like it is curdling just keep mixing it will come together into a smooth creamy dressing. If it is too thin just add more tahini and if too thick add a splash more water.
For the filling lay out the wrap and smear with a tablespoon of freshly made cranberry sauce down the middle. Then place on top a few spinach leaves and your Brussels sprouts followed by the chopped chestnuts, orange zest and a drizzle of dressing.
Roll up and enjoy your Christmas left overs in a wrap!
