Wrap Me, Roll Me!

I ate a lot of gyro in Melbourne and sharwarma in Dubai but I do not get to eat these often in Singapore. It was raining cats and dogs yesterday and I didn’t feel like going out so I checked my pantry. I had store-bought wheat flour tortillas and some leftover meat in the fridge so I made my own wrap for lunch.

Tortilla Wrap

Wheat-flour Tortillas are flat-breads.

I read somewhere that Wheat flour rather than Maize flour is a healthier version of tortillas because it is more suitable for people with high blood sugar.

A wrap is a type of sandwich made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling.

This was my lunch, a home-made wrap with leftover roast, Japanese mayo and Sriracha sauce.

“A wrap is a type of sandwich made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling.

The usual flatbreads are wheat-flour tortillas, lavash, or pita; the filling usually consists of cold sliced meat, poultry, or fish accompanied by shredded lettuce, diced tomato or pico de gallo, guacamole, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, grilled onions, cheese, and a sauce, such as ranch or honey mustard.” – Wikipedia

What’s your favourite wrap filling?

What’s your favourite filling? I asked around and got some mouth-watering response:

Crissie Ziba likes Lamb Fillet Kebabs.
Darren Shipp likes his with some nice fish, habanero, aioli sauce, lettuce, cilantro and tomatoes.
Darron Hutchins likes it with Peanut Butter, Lamb and even Kangaroo meat!
Dee Arzola likes Cheddar Smoked Sausage with Caramelized Onions.
Douglas Case likes it with Eggs, Potatoes, Green Chillies, Onions, and Salsa with an option for Chorizo.
Ralf-Peter Oberüber also shared his favourites, Quince Gelée with Habaneros (sweet & spicy) and Mangold (Chard, a leafy green) with Lobster and fried Fennel.
Ted Wells even shared a link, click for: Gold Medal Sizzling Fajitas!
Tony Morton likes his with Skirt Steak.

Hmmm… They all sounded yummilicious! So much so that the tortillas’ being teased, “Wrap me, roll me!”
