Ever so often I have bad eating days, and while it might be fun giving in to temptations and being lazy, I begin to crave a – good- healthy – refreshing meal soon after. And believe you me when I tell you, you can still be lazy and have a nutritious meal. As putting something like this together takes very little effort.

These soft zucchini and carrot tortillas are put together in minutes and you can stuff just about anything your heart desires in in. I chose to add an egg to mix, but you can totally omit it and they will still turn out perfect. Made with 2 amazing flours – Green Mung Bean flour and Chickpea Flour this tortilla is high in protein and the added grated vegetables bring fibre, vitamins and minerals. These tortillas are good to eat just as they are. Roll them up and they’re a perfect anytime healthy snack. But since this was lunch and I needed it to be a bit more filling, I decided to make it even better with Kale, Tofu and Micro Greens. These tortillas need a condiment to bring it together and Sriracha does the job. You could use any other sauce that works for you. The egg is optional. If you’re Vegan don’t worry this recipe still works perfectly without the egg.

Makes 7-8

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and add room temperature water till you have a slightly runny batter.

In a small sized frying pan take a little oil and pour a ladle full of the batter and speed with the back of your spoon as thinly as you can. Drizzle very little oil around the edges and once its done flip and cook through. Repeat with for the rest of the batter.

The Filling
