I love an asparagus wrap in the summer. If you are looking for a quick snack, a light lunch or a way to keep a hungry child fed healthily between meals a soft wrap with a filling of fresh vegetables and other goodies is always going to be a good bet. Follow these links if you were looking for a recipe for asparagus wrapped in bacon or prosciutto or smoked salmon.
You can try different combinations depending on what you have to hand. I was having a treat with the one in the photo and added prawns instead of ham or chicken. It also looks as though I shredded my asparagus lengthways for a change!
There is a knack to making wraps that don't fall apart and keeping the filling inside until you are ready to eat it. We will give you a few ideas.
1 round soft wrap
2 or 3 asparagus spears
a little mayonaise
a few lettuce leaves
some fresh coriander, basil or other herbs if you any to hand
a small amount of ham or cooked chicken (cold)
a desert spoonful of canned sweetcorn
chopped cucumber or tomatoes or both
a teaspponful of pinenuts
salt and pepper to taste
If you don't like such a high proportion of wrap just put the mix across the middle of the wrap and role from one side to the other. You can then either eat it with a knife and fork or cut it in half and try not to lose the filling from the bottom!
When our daughter was still at school I used this technique then wrapped the bottom of the asparagus wrap in foil to keep the filling in place in her lunch box. She seemed happy with the solution and her friends were impressed with what she got for lunch.
