As well as going low carb I have decided to try a gluten free diet, there are a few symptoms (I won't bore you with those now) that have sparked curiosity so I figured there was no harm in having a go and seeing if gluten could really be the devil. I'm not doing particularly well if you must know but Monday will see me be very strict! I bought some gluten free wraps as I was wanting an option for lunch and there was a great little idea on the back of the packet which suggested using them as pizza bases.
Er pizza for lunch?
The wraps are from Warburtons by the way if you were on the lookout, pretty darn tasty too, especially when they crisp round the side from oven baking.
Ingredients for one:
Square wraps - Gluten free or not I like the offerings form Warburtons
Oregano or basil
Half a clove of garlic
Pine Nuts - small handful
Pepper Confit - if you can't find this or can't eat sugar then use roasted peppers should work
Preheat oven to gas mark 5, 190 degrees
Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan.
Blanch the tomato, then peel and de-seed.
Blend this with some fresh oregano or basil, the garlic and some seasoning.
For one person I cut the wrap in half and spread the tomato sauce over the top.
Layer the spinach, goats cheese, pine nuts and pepper confit.
Pop in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
Then if you are lucky you might end up with something like this below.
Which admittedly looks a little like it did when it first dived into the oven. Ahem.
Pop some rocket or lambs lettuce on top for a swanky look.
Just joking, the lambs lettuce adds another flavour dimension and I think rocket would work fantastically especially with a balsamic glaze (not if you are gluten free of course!)
Are you gluten free? Some tips would be great please! My main problem would be that lovely cold glass of beer...
