I personally love wraps and eat one at least once a week! I find that wraps are so quick and easy to put together for lunches, not to mention that you can fill them with an endless variety of things you love just like this open wrap.

This open wrap is absolutely divine and contains a few of my favourite things such as halloumi, mushrooms and avocado! All served beautifully in a toasted wrap.

If you are grain-free or gluten intolerant don’t worry, you can still enjoy these wonderful creations. All you need to do is substitute the wraps for any of the wide variety that is on offer. I have made my wraps from scratch, but you can also buy tasty wraps from any grocer.
