Tortilla Wrap

Ok, this is not quite a recipe for little picky eaters. It is obviously that my kids are growing up and they start to eat much more diversified. Which is a good thing, but they still have a lot of issues to improve about their diet. So, why did I invent this homemade recipe? For 2 reasons:

1. to use the always remaining leftovers of all kind of steak, roasted meat and so on.
2. and to camouflage some kind of meat that is very healthy but the kids don't want to eat (venison, hunting meat like rabbit).

My mother helps me and she usually cooks the venison for us, by keeping it for days in marinade in order to change the taste, baking it in oven for hours to tenderize it. But my kids still don't want to eat it. So, i came with this amazing idea, to add some sauces over to change the taste and the smell, and to wrap it with salad in tortilla.

First, to trick them, I added also some baked potatoes in the wrap, and then replace them with baked sweet potatoes. But now I don't add sweet potatoes all the time, and that makes the wrap more light and healthy.

So, this is the way to make it: cut the meat into small pieces and cook it for a few minutes in a pan with some olive oil.

I add over 2 sauces: a little of Thai Sweet and Hot Chilli Sauce and Rich Hoisin Sauce.  In the third jar there is homemade hot peppers jam, which I sometimes use instead of the Sweet and Hot Chilli Sauce.


For this recipe I use a gluten free tortilla.

1. I warm the tortilla for a minute in a hot pan. 
2. Then add some sweet mustard. 
3 - 4. Add some grated carrot, the meat and the salad, and wrap it!
For my eldest son, I add a little of Sweet and Hot Chilli Sauce over, because he likes spicy food.

You can use corn tortilla (picture below) instead of the gluten free one, or any kind of tortilla you prefer, even a gluten version one, if you don't have gluten intolerance.
