I especially love this recipe because not only is it tasty in every way possible, but also it’s a big hit with my children. It’s incredibly easy to ‘hide’ really amazing foods that your children might not normally eat – and here’s how!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 wholewheat tortillas
2 large romaine lettuce leaves, torn in half
1 large pear, grated
sea salt

For the beetroot paste

Quantity Ingredient
2 cooked beetroots, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
small handful fresh coriander
small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
35g walnuts
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

For the black rice

Quantity Ingredient
240ml water
100g black rice
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/2 lime, zested and juiced
35g sultanas
35g flaked almonds, toasted

Method

  1. To make the beetroot paste, throw everything into a food processor, add a pinch of sea salt to taste, and blitz until a lovely paste has formed. Transfer to a bowl for later.
  2. To make the black rice, put the 240ml water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the rice, caraway seeds and a pinch of sea salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover and leave to simmer for 20–25 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed, then leave to cool. Once cooled, transfer the rice to a bowl and add the lime zest and juice, sultanas and almonds. Stir well.
  3. Place 2 tablespoons of the beetroot paste in the middle of each tortilla and cover with one of the lettuce leaf halves. Top with a couple of heaped spoonfuls of the black rice filling. Sprinkle with the grated pear and fold or roll the tortillas to create a wrap.

Note

  • Brown rice is good for you, but black rice is even better. It may take longer to cook, but if you have the time then go for it. The bran hull in black rice contains significantly higher amounts of vitamin E, which helps to protect the cells from those free radicals.
