Green cheese and turkey roll-ups

Get kids eating their greens with these fun cheese and turkey roll-ups that are the ideal lunchbox idea. Blitz peas, spinach and basil with soft cheese to make 'green cheese' and spread into tortillas. Add turkey slices and ribbons of cucumber before rolling up and slicing – it's so easy and ready in just 15 minutes.

  1. Blanch the peas in boiling water for 3 mins, then drain and rinse under cold water. Blitz with the spinach, basil and 1 tbsp soft cheese until well combined and semi-smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining cheese; season.
  2. Spread the green cheese onto the wraps, leaving a 2.5cm border, then evenly lay the turkey and cucumber across the wraps.
  3. Tightly roll up the wraps, then cut each one into 6 x 4cm-thick pieces.
