  1. Spread one side of each tortilla with a tablespoon of houmous.
  2. Toss the grated carrot with the lemon juice to stop it browning and scatter over the houmous with the cress. Roll up tightly and cut into thick slices – or pinwheels - to serve.
  3. To keep the wrap in place in a lunchbox, wrap the rolled, sliced tortilla in a square of foil, twisting the ends tightly like a cracker to secure.
