One way to “jazz up” your sandwich wraps and picnic wraps without any extra effort is to buy any one of the ‘flavoured’ tortilla wraps for sale. This week I found myself picking up a pack of the Rowan Hill Bakery Mediterranean Herb Tortilla Wraps at Lidl.
The pack contains 8 wraps and costs £0.65, which means they cost £0.08 (8p) each. The bag is resealable, with a ziplock style closer.
The wraps are large – and I microwaved them for 10 seconds each side before adding my wrap fillings.
I tend to find tortilla wraps quite chewy and often inedible. These wraps were a little thinner and so worked well when folded and rolled into a wrap!
Usually I’ll use tortilla wraps to create an alternative to sandwiches, for picnics and lunchboxes – or as a quick pizza base (sometimes I then fold/wrap the hot pizza once it’s cooked).
Hot wraps are a great meal 🙂
How to Prepare a Tortilla
It’s “the norm” to heat up a tortilla, although you can eat them hot or cold, I find just a quick blast in the microwave makes me feel better about using them; it won’t do you any harm if you just use them cold. You can heat tortillas in one of three ways:
- Oven: Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan. Wrap the tortillas in foil and bake for 8 minutes.
- Stove Top: Dry ‘fry’ the tortilla in a hot skillet/frying pan for 7 seconds per side.
- Microwave: Microwave for 10-15 seconds each side (I use this method).
Calories in Rowan Hill Tortilla Wraps
- One wrap contains 178 calories.
- Each wrap contains 2.2grams of fat, of which saturates are 1.2grams.
- Each wrap contains 1.9 grams of sugar and 0.58g salt.
I found these tortilla wraps to be a lot less chewy/inedible as other brands I’ve tried. They rolled up really easily and, once rolled, didn’t then unravel (which is always annoying).
I’d certainly buy them again!
