Pork chilli wraps

Simple meals don’t have to be boring

I have been on a mission this year to make simple but tasty meals. The aim was to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight.
We all struggle to make healthy and tasty meals while keeping on top of everything else in life.
The preparation takes no more than 20 minutes, that is all of the slicing, dicing and mixing.
Each meal is portioned to feed four adults.

Summertime meal

When it is hot and sticky outside, I don’t want a hot meal; I want something easy and fresh. Not everyone in our house feels the same. These tasty, easy wraps are a great dinner option and compromise. The sweet chilli sauce gives the meat a nice kick, the pork is hot, and the cos bring some summer freshness to the meal. Perfect!
