Spinach Breakfast Wrap


2 eggs

2 handfuls spinach

Salt and pepper

Possible fillings - beans, avocados, alfalfa sprouts, roasted vegetables, cheese, cooked mushrooms, toasted seeds


Break eggs into a large a liquidiser or a jug to use with a hand blender, season with salt and pepper and add two handfuls of baby spinach leaves Set aside until ready to cook.

Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add oil. Give a quick stir to the egg/spinach mixture, then pour into the pan and tilt the pan to spread the mixture, just like making a pancake.

With a rubber spatula, push one edge of the egg toward the centre of the pan, while tilting the pan to allow the rest of the liquid to flow in.

Repeat until there's no liquid left.

Cook slowly and low, turning the heat down if you are worried about it burning.

Carefully flip the omelette and cook for 30 seconds on the other side.

Place the omelette on plate, leaving about 2 inches at the bottom of the omelette for folding, make a row in the centre of fillings.

Gently fold the bottom of the wrap up and then each side in and roll like a burrito. Enjoy!
