Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Put the courgettes and pepper on the trays and mist with cooking spray. Put the tomatoes in a small roasting tin and mist with cooking spray. Roast all the veg for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the sweet potato in a pan of boiling water for 15 minutes until tender. Drain and mash in a bowl until smooth. Set aside to cool. Cook the quinoa to pack instructions and drain.
  3. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Add the cooked quinoa and mashed sweet potato, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape each into an 8cm patty.
  4. Line another baking tray with baking paper, put the patties on the tray and mist with cooking spray. Sprinkle over the sunflower seeds and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Make a relish. Combine the red onion, parsley, vinegar and sugar with the roasted tomatoes. Season and mix well.
  6. Cut each patty in half. Divide the lettuce, courgette and pepper between the wraps, top with 2 patty halves each and some relish, fold over and serve straight away.

Notes

Swap the quinoa for brown rice or wholewheat couscous – the SmartPoints will stay the same. And try rocket instead of lettuce.
