I love making the food for my birthday. But this year I didn’t really have time for it. But the evening before my birthday I got creative in the kitchen and made delicious pestowraps. I found the recipe in a magazine and changed it a bit to make it lactose free. I cut the wraps in small pieces so it would be snacks but you can also eat them for lunch. Here is the recipe for the pestowraps and at the end you will find soe information on how to make the wraps lactose free.
Ingredients for 6-7 wraps
Knife tip of salt
2 tablespoons pesto
Put the flower, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix it. Make a hole in the middle and put the eggs in it. Start mixing it by hand and add the milk and the pesto little by little. When everything is added and mixed well you should have something that looks like pancake mix. Heat up some oil in a pan on mediumhigh heat and add some of the mix. I used one soupspoon of mix for each wrap. It is important they are thin, so the amount you need will depend on the size of your pan. Turn the wrap around after four minutes and bake it on the other side for about two. Now put it on a plate with some baking paper on top of it, this will absorbe the grease. Heat up some new oil and bake another wrap. You can make about 6-7 wraps. When they are all done cover them up with foil and let them cool down in the refrigerator.
I put cream cheese and thin slices of chickenbreast or raw ham on them. Then I made little rolls of the wraps, put some foil around them and let them warm up to room temperature. You can cut them in pieces and serve as snacks or you can have it for lunch.
How do you make this recipe lactose free? Instead of milk I used soy milk and extra pesto. Soy milk is a lot sweeter than normal milk so you need to use some more pesto. I ended up using 3-4 tablespoons of it (taste it and see if you want to add more). Also check out the ingredients of the pesto carefully because they add the weirdest supplements to pesto you can buy at the supermarket. If you want to be really sure that is has no lactose make your own. I used cream cheese of the brand Minus L (it’s sold at Jumbo in the Netherlands). This brand sells dairy products without lactose (also milk, yoghurt etc.).
