Method

  1. Lay one wrap on a clean chopping board.
  2. Sprinkle over half the cheese. Add vegetables, black beans and then the remaining cheese.
  3. Place the second wrap on top of the cheese layer.
  4. Carefully transfer each wrap to a hot sandwich press (it may be easiest to slide this off a chopping board or plate).
  5. Toast until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  6. Chop into 4 wedges (or 6 wedges for smaller children).
  7. Serve hot by themselves or with a dip (e.g. guacamole or natural yoghurt).
