Roast Pumpkin and Tuna Wrap Recipe

Roast Pumpkin and Tuna Wrap Recipe

Credit: Christie Connelly

There’s rarely leftover pumpkin at my place, I love it so much. So I always have to make it fresh for any recipe that requires it, but if you’re less greedy and can hang on to some from your Sunday night roast dinner, then Monday lunch will be super-speedy. Try slicing the wrap all the way along into thick discs and serving it to the kids as “sushi” — my son fell for it, so maybe yours will, too.

Serves: 4



  • 4 wraps
  • 4 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups lettuce leaves
  • 2 cups roast pumpkin chunks
  • 200g tinned tuna
  1. Place wraps on clean kitchen bench. Spread ricotta down one side and sprinkle with red onion. Top with lettuce leaves, roast pumpkin and tuna.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and wrap tightly. Serve immediately.
