  6. To make the quesadilla, add the cubed tomatoes, red onions and black pepper to a bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice into the bowl and ensure that all the vegetables are coated.
  7. To assemble the burritos,  microwave the tortillas  for  30 seconds (so that they do not break while folding them).

  14. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a hot pan.
  15. Place each wrap in the pan for about 30 seconds on each side (so that the wraps get a slightly golden colour ).
  16. Using a sharp knife inorder to get a clean cut, cut 3 of the wraps in half.
  17. Place mayonnaise in a drizzling bottle, and squeeze it out in circular motion around the plates. (The circles don’t need to be perfect)
  18. To plate, start by placing a full burrito on each plate.
  19. Then, place one of the cut burritos at an angle against the full burritos, on each plate.
  20. Finally, place a few tablespoons of the remaining quesadilla in each plate, before garnishing with parsley and 2 lemon wedges and dinner will be ready!
