I am a Yorkshire lass. Born and bred. ‘Fish and chips’ is a proud part of my heritage. ‘Where is the best ‘fish and chips’ in Yorkshire?’ has been one of my favourite topics for many years. (If you’re interested, it’s a tie between The Magpie in Whitby, and Murgatroyd’s in Yeadon). ‘Fish and chips’ is such a part of our culture that is is illegal to refuse to eat them. Ok, so that last statement is not quite true, but you get what I’m saying. The thing is, as much as I adore that fishy dish, I have got to the stage where I just don’t want it anymore. It tastes lovely, but I know eating will make me feel rough.So what happens when you go for a day out in Scarborough, a Yorkshire seaside resort and you don’t want ‘fish and chips’? You take a blanket, a load of raw food, and sit making Romaine Pinic Wraps whilst looking out towards the sea… Happy days. And if you think I’m completely mental and do want fish and chips, then go ahead and enjoy! (But defintely make them another time because they’re dead nice).
ROMAINE PICNIC WRAPS
- A romaine lettuce (you didn’t see that one coming, did you?)
- Fillings of your choice. Try avocado, raw hummus, cherry tomatoes, capers, olives, pesto, cashew nuts, alfalfa sprouts, grated carrot, beetroot…the list is endless
Get a romaine lettuce leaf and erm…stuff it! That’s it! Have fun and get creative with your fillings. You’ll love these. And you’ll have enough energy to run up to Scarborough Castle and back three times.
