    80g Apetina Paneer
    50g Chopped Spinach (Washed, blanched and water squeezed out)
    1 Weight Watcher's Wrap
    50g Mixed Salad (Lettuce, Baby plum tomato & Cucumber)
    1/2 Medium Avocado
    1/4 Finely chopped onion
    1 clove crushed garlic
    1/2 Green chilly
    Lemon Juice to taste
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    1. In a bowl, use a fork to mash the paneer and spinach together. Season with salt and pepper.  (You can add chillies, or some garlic granules at this point if desired)
    2. Pre-heat a non-stick pan to medium heat. Place some of the spinach and paneer mixture on one half of the wrap and spread evenly. Fold the wrap over.
    3. Place the folded wrap onto the pan and let cook either side for about 3-4 minutes, or until brown and crispy.
    4. Remove from pan and slice.
    5. You will have more of the paneer mixture left. Make them into small patties and on the same pan, grill till brown on either side.
    6. To make the guacamole, add the avocado, onion, garlic, chilly and lemon juice into a bowl and season with salt.
    7. Using a fork, mash well till combined and only slightly chunky.
    8. Garnish with a little coriander
    9. Serve with a side salad!
