Gluten Free Chilli Bean wraps

This is an old favourite recipe of mine. I learnt to make something similar back in my days in the vegetarian restaurant in Brighton & have tinkered with the recipe over the years. It is always popular.. it was a hit at my 40th Birthday party and is good family fare as it is popular with adults & kids alike…It can be served cold as a  tasty lunch option but is also tasty served warm with a  homemade tomato sauce and a big salad for tea. It is so simple to make yet bursting with goodness… beans are a great source of complex carbohydrates and vegetarian protein, so should help to give you long lasting energy whilst the carrots & squash are rich in immune boosting, antioxidant rich beta carotene.. It makes a great fibre rich, low calorie, vegan friendly, gluten free lunch option…
