It's also easy to prepare and only takes around 20-25 minutes to get into your lunchbox.

Ingredients (2 servings)

• 2 small pre-grated carrots

 1 small onion

• 3 tbsp. sunflower seeds

• ¼ bell pepper

• Handful of spinach

• 1 medium-sized grated ginger

• ⅓ cup low-fat cheese

• 2 tbsp. sour cream

• 1 tsp lemon zest

• 3 tbsp. mustard 

• 2 wraps such as tortilla wraps or pita pockets

• Pepper and salt taste-wise

How to cook the recipe?

1. Put the sunflower seeds in a pan - heat the pan until the seeds are golden brown. No need to add any oil.

2. Take the carrots and rub them over a grater (you can also use grated carrots or a food processor). Wash the bell pepper and cut it into small pieces and throw away the seeds and white parts.

3. Take off the layer of skin on the onion and cut it into small circles.

4. Wash the spinach and let it dry

5. Take the ginger and peel off the skin and grate it into a bowl (you can use powdered ginger as well).

6. Put in cottage cheese, sour cream (or vegan alternative), lemon zest, and mustard, and mix everything.

7. Take the dressing mixture and spread it on the wraps. Make sure to leave about 1 cm-1.5 cm from the edge without any dressing to make sure it doesn’t spill out when you close the wrap.

8. Put the vegetables and spinach on top of the dressing and sprinkle some pepper, salt, and sunflower seeds for extra flavor.

9. Finally, roll up your wraps tightly and cut them in half (you can use a knife or kitchen scissors). Enjoy!
