Making a meal with gluten-free tortillas can be a frustrating experience. If you’ve ever tried them, you likely know just how fragile they can be! Instead, savoy cabbage leaves are your PERFECT solution! They’re strong, full of flavour and they add freshness to each and every mouthful. As an added bonus, they also pack WAY more nutrition into each bite as compared to their grain-based alternatives!

These wraps are a wonderful way to boost your vegetable intake in the most delicious way! There’s plenty of flexibility with this recipe, and you can modify these wraps by swapping in chickpeas, peanuts, prawns or fish in place of the cashews and sunflower seeds. Enjoy!
