29. Banting Rotis 2: Cheese Roti,  Wrap or Taco

To be consistent on a LCHF lifestyle you need to ensure you always have easy, low carb food options on hand. Often it’s not the foods that you miss so much but more it’s the ease of having suitable things to eat that can be available in a jiffy .  

So whether you  feel the urge to snack or have a strong craving that wants to be satisfied asap, its often wiser to be equipped with quick low carb meal or snack ideas. Since rotis and wraps are staples most of us grew up on, we need to have LCHF wrap swaps to prevent us reaching out for junk food or ‘carbage’  versions which will cause us to have regrets later.

Using grated cheese and bake paper is one of the simplest low carb wrap recipes I have come across. Wraps made from cheese only, also have the added advantage of being zero carb. That makes them really a great carb saver, allowing one to save their daily carbs for something else one desires to eat.

There are various appliances you can make cheese wraps with. You could try using a nonstick pan on your stovetop or using bake/parchment paper and your oven …these however take a bit longer, meaning you have to wait till the cheese melts completely and then cools a bit and gets crisp. 
They can however be made very quick in your toaster press or your microwave: Simply take half a cup of grated cheese and spread it in the form of a circle 12 to 15 cm in diameter on bake paper. Heat it till cheese melts completely (takes a minute or so) in microwave or slightly longer to melt, in an open toaster-press.
Cheese Wrap/ Roti or Taco (oven method):

Preheat oven to 200 degree celcius or 400 degree farenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle 1/2 cup servings of grated Cheddar Cheese on the baking sheet to form circles (12 to 15cm in diameter). Bake until the cheese melts and turns light brown, approx 6 to 8 minutes. 

For a taco shaped wrap, drape the melted cheese circle on a tumbler (lying on its side) after allowing it to cool for a minute, bake-paper side down. Leave to cool more and peel off the bake paper when crisp.

    Though I’m sorely tempted, I’m currently quite busy so regretfully have to refuse. Feel free to share if you feel it will be of benefit to others. Thanks for the offering though.
