Slimming World’s butternut squash tortilla is a delicious recipe to enjoy at lunch time with fresh salad leaves. It’s a great packed lunch alternative when you’re bored of the same old sandwich or salad. This easy to make tortilla uses a Slimming World favourite – Quark, which makes the tortilla extra light and fluffy. Serving around 4 people, it will take around 50 mins to cook and 10 mins to prepare. It’s a great one for making in advance and will last a few days in the fridge when stored in an airtight container. This tortilla is ideal for using up any leftover butternut squash you might have from a Sunday roast or when it’s in season.
