Ingredients

For the bread:
6 slices of white bread (de-crusted)
200ml milk
~7 scoops Nutilis Clear

For the spinach & avocado filling:
100g spinach
3 ripe avocados
20ml boiling water
~2 Nutilis Clear scoops

For the tuna filling:
224g drained canned tuna
224g mayonnaise
~4 scoops Nutilis Clear

Optional:
Paprika
Gravy browning mixed with water

Equipment:
40cm clingfilm
Square cutter

Method

  1. Remove the crust from x6 slices of bread. Crumb the de-crusted slices into fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Add 7 scoops of Nutilis Clear to 200ml milk, mix vigorously and leave to stand until desired thickness has been achieved.
  3. Add the thickened milk into the breadcrumbs and mix well. Set aside until ready to use. 
  4. Next, blend the spinach and avocado together. Add ~20ml boiling water and blend until a puree is formed. 
  5. Pass the puree through a fine metal sieve. Use a clean spoon to scrape the outside of the sieve. 
  6. Mix in the Nutilis Clear and leave to stand until desired thickness has been reached. Set aside until ready to use.
  7. Start the tuna filling by adding tuna and mayonnaise to a clean blender. Blend into a puree, adding 20ml boiling water as you do so.
  8. Pass the puree through a fine metal sieve. Use a clean spoon to scrape the outside of the sieve.
  9. Add the Nutilis Clear, stir and leave to stand until desired thickness has been reached.

Assembling the Wrap:

  1. Place a sheet of clingfilm on a flat surface. 
  2. Lightly brush over the centre area with the gravy browning and water mix.
  3. Place 3 tablespoons of the bread puree in the centre of the clingfilm and smooth it out into a rectangular shape.
  4. Layer two tablespoons of the spinach and avocado puree on top, spreading it flatly over the bread puree.
  5. Add 3 tablespoons of the tuna puree on top and spread more thickly over the spinach and avocado puree. 
  6. Take the top two corners of the clingfilm, fold them over in half, making the sandwich puree close over itself. Roll up the excess clingfilm at the bottom and sides of the wrap. 
  7. Freeze for 2 hours.
