6 large, firm black plums
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1½ cups white sugar, divided

2 spinach tortillas
2 heaping tablespoons of tzatziki
2 slices of Provolone cheese
4 slices of ham or 4 heaping tablespoons of diced ham
2 bunches of pea shoots, or rainbow sprouts
8 to 10 strips of bell pepper
4 tablespoons chopped tomato
4 to 6 crisp lettuce leaves
Lay the tortillas out flat on a work surface. Divide the tzatziki between the two tortillas, spreading it across half of each tortilla. Cover the tzatziki with the slices of cheese and top with the ham. Add a bunch of pea shoots or sprouts to each tortilla. Top with the peppers and tomato. Crown with the lettuce leaves. Fold the uncovered side of the tortilla up over the edge of the filling, then roll the tortilla from one side making a cylindrical shape of the whole.
