Avocado Wrap lunch on the go

Avocado and Chickpea Wraps

4 wholemeal/whole-wheat tortillas or other wraps

400-g/14-oz. can chickpeas drained and rinsed

1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced

1 tomato, deseeded and flesh diced

3–4 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese

a few handfuls of shredded little gem lettuce and/or sprouted seeds

a little freshly squeezed lemon juice

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Makes 4 servings


Working one at a time, put a tortilla onto the work surface. Sprinkle a quarter of the chickpeas on top in a line down the middle.

Mash with a fork, spreading in a half-moon shape towards one edge of the tortilla.

Cover this with a generous spoonful of cottage cheese. Arrange a few avocado slices on top, in a line down the middle.

Sprinkle over a small handful of diced tomato, a little grated Cheddar cheese and some lettuce and/or sprouted seeds.

Squeeze over a little lemon juice and season lightly.

Starting from the edge with the filling, begin rolling to enclose the filling. Wrap in greaseproof paper or clingfilm/plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until required.
