Let's snack? Homemade rice wrap



I am a big fan of guacamole, in fact a big fan of avocado by itself and when spread in a wrap/tortilla/savoury crepes/whatever you want to call it, the result just can be wonderful (especially if it is Gluten-free, like this version).

So, here it is a good idea for a meal at home or even to take away and really works for a party, because you can make the wraps, guacamole, some other sauces, prepare some fillings, like a suggest below, plated up in bowls and every guest can choose whatever they want and you can just relax.

It is also a good tip to get rid of leftovers stored in the fridge.



Ingredients (to make 10 wraps):

Wrap mix:
- 100ml Rice Milk (you can use cow`s milk)
- 100ml vegetable stock or water
- 150g rice flour
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 1tbsp of sesame seeds
- pinch of salt
- pinch of black-pepper

Preparation:
- Mix all the liquids first – milk, veg stock/water, olive oil and the eggs.
- Add the flour and whisk until you get a smooth mix.
- Season with some salt, black-pepper and add now the sesame seeds.
- Use a non-stick frying-pan, add some olive oil and get it hot before adding some mix. The secret of a good wrap is to be thin, so be quick in the circular motion when you add a spoon of the mix to the pan. Cook both sides until lightly golden.
- Between each wrap put a piece of baking paper and you can always warm it up just place in the oven for a few minutes before serving.

Guacamole:
-2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 small onion (I choose red onion)
- 1 small tomato (peeled, no seeds and cut in small cubes – concasse)
- ½ lemon, juice
- salt
- some coriander, chopped
-1/2 red chilli, chopped

Preparation:
- Peel both avocados, cut in halves, remove the stones and in a mixing bowl smash it with a fork.
- Add the chopped onion, concasse tomato, chilli, chopped coriander and season with salt and lemon juice.
- Eat straight away or keep in the fridge for 3 days.

Filling:
It is completely up to you, but my suggestions are:
Protein - poached chicken breast; slices of a good sausage; beef stripes; pulled pork; goats cheese, cheddar or cottage cheese, mushrooms.
Vitamins and Minerals - grated carrot; tomatoes; any kind of leaves; roast peppers, courgette or aubergine; fennel; slices of cucumber; celery; fruit like mango or pineapple.
