Mini Wraps

I’m always looking for quick & easy meals for the kids, especially ones which can be prepped ahead.  I spotted these spicy bean wraps while having a nose around on the Vegetarian Society’s Website & thought the kids would love them.  For a bit of variety I also made some carrot & hummus, and cream cheese & tomato ones too.

Strangely, neither DC1(5) or DC2 (3) were that keen on the bean ones, but luckily loved the other ones.  I’ll definately be making them again though as DH & I really liked them all!

    Hi, Bessie. Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I am not a vegetarian and I am a lazy cook, but I will be trying a couple of these wraps you have above. They look delicious. Keep up the good work!
