Wraps don't have to be boring. Spruce up the lunchbox routine with tortilla sushi. With cheese, veg and ham, it's easy to make and fun to eat.


  • 3 tbsp softened block-style cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 medium whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 60 g thinly sliced Black Forest ham
  • thinly sliced strips yellow pepper
  • long, thin strips seedless cucumber


  • Combine cream cheese with mango chutney and Dijon.
  • Divide mixture between tortillas, spreading all the way to the edges.
  • Tear lettuce leaves into strips and pile along edge of each tortilla.
  • Top each tortilla with Black Forest ham, yellow pepper and cucumber.
  • Roll up tortillas tightly to enclose fillings. Wrap each roll in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour (or overnight to help it stay together). Unwrap and cut each roll into 6 pieces about 1-in wide.
