Aubergine wedges in a wrap

Summer is here ?! Apparently so! It's been raining for a week, the sun is nowhere to be seen and it's still cold. These wraps has cheered us all up with the taste of a smelly tomatoes, sharp aubergines and a hint of a garlic, chili and basil...


serve 4

2 aubergines sliced into wedges 
6 small tomatoes
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp chili flakes 
dry basil
olive oil
salt and pepper
fresh basil 

for the wraps: 200 gr flour, half to be wholemeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
40 ml oil
120 ml warm water

First make the wraps: place all ingredients into a medium size bowl and mix them all up until you form a dough. Cover with tea towel for an hour or two.
Place the dough onto a floured board and divide into 8 balls.
Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a round using more flour if needed.
Heat a non stick frying pan and dry-fry the breads for 30 seconds of each side.

While you wait for the dough to rest, cut the aubergines into wedges, sprinkle some salt and set a side.
Cut the tomatoes into a small chunks, add the chili flakes, garlic, dry basil and some pepper.
Pre-heat the oven on 180 C.
Place the aubergines onto a baking tray and sprinkle oil generously .

Roast them for a 30 minutes, then add the tomato mixture and roast for 15 more minutes.
Sprinkle with fresh basil before serving.

Finger lickin open wraps

I've got a big thumbs up for this mid-week veggie dinner from my family. Super looking and super tasty wraps made with simple ingredients in no time at all ....

You will need:

1 big-ish sweet potato, grated
1/2 cup of dry soya mince
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 sliced onion
1 sliced red pepper
 one handful cooked chick peas ( optional )
salt and pepper
2 tsp chipotle paste or any other chili paste
 8-10 corn wraps
 parsley for topping
cheese ( optional )

Place the grated sweet potato into a big plate, add the dry soya mince, garlic, chipotle paste  and salt and pepper.
Set a side.
Heat up a medium size cooking pan, add a big splash of olive oil and stir in onion and pepper.
Add the soya/sweet potato mixture, stir it all up, add 400 ml of water, put the lid on and cook the mixture for 15 minutes. Add the chick peas if you are using it.
Stir often, add more water if the mixture is dry and potato is not cooked.
In a separate frying pan, heat up the wraps - each wrap goes in a dry pan for a minute, each side.
Form a taco shapes while they are still warm and fill them up with the filling. 
Sprinkle some parsley or cheese if you wish, I like to keep mine vegan.
