  • Arrowroot wraps

  • Teriyaki

What to do

    1. For the arrowroot wraps, combine all ingredients in a small bowl until a smooth batter forms.

    2. Heat a small frying pan over medium heat and brush with some coconut oil.

    3. Pour 1/8th of the batter in and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side. Continue with rest of batter. Place cooked tortillas to the side and keep warm.

    4.  For the teriyaki sauce, add all sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until well combined.

    5. To cook the chicken, heat oil over medium-heat in a large frying pan.

    6. Add chicken strips and cook for 2-3 minutes or until browned.

    7. Add teriyaki sauce and simmer for 2-3 minutes until it thickens and chicken is cooked.

    8. Top arrowroot wraps with teriyaki chicken and the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and roll up to serve.

Note: Most teriyaki sauces are filled with empty sugars and are loaded with sodium. This healthy version tastes delicious, obtaining its flavour from a combination of raw honey mixed with tamari.

Tip: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days, or freeze for up to four months.
