    • 1 cup of boiling water
    • Salt
    • Garlic salt
    • Pepper
    • Pinch turmeric
    • Pinch ginger
    • Tblsp balsamic vinegar


  • Wax paper
  • Rolling pin
  • Spray and cook
  • Frying pan with low sides.. crepe pan would be ideal
  • Pot
  • Knife
  • Chopping board


  • Bring a cup of water to the boil in a pot on the stove
  • Add a cup of ground linseed/flaxseed and stir vigorously until it forms a ball in the middle of the pot. Remove from heat.
  • Divide the ball in quarters and roll the quarters out between two pieces of wax paper to form the shape and size of about a 15 to 20 cm wrap.
  • Heat the crepe pan that has been sprayed with spray and cook
  • One by one, remove each wrap from the grease proof and fry for about 1 minute on each side.
  • Do not over cook because we want them to be bendable and soft, but cooked through.
  • When the wraps are cooked, set them aside to rest, covered with a cloth.
  • Slice all your fresh salad goodies thinly and tear your lettuce into bite sized pieces.
  • Slice or tear your cooked chicken.
  • Spread each wrap with a Tbsp of cottage cheese and season well with your choice of spices.
  • Add your favourite peppers, micro herbs, lettuce, julienne carrots and chicken onto your wrap.
  • Sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil over your filling.
  • Roll it up neatly and make sure to stick it closed with a bit of the cottage cheese


  • Plate your wrap on a bed of lettuce
  • If you feel creative you can tie a little ‘string’ made of a strip of spring onion, chive or a strip of leek around each wrap.

Please note that this is a lower carb meal with only carbs in the form of fresh salads
