Raw Wraps (for the millionth time).

I cannot stress enough how much I love raw wraps. They’re so simple, you don’t need a recipe and you don’t ever have to make the same one twice (unless you want to of course).

I had a green smoothie for breakfast so I was craving some crunch.

I used my mandolin to make thin slices out of a European cucumber, unpeeled because it was organic. I laid two slices parallel to each other and overlapping halfway, just to create a larger surface.

I put grated carrots, avocado slices, red bell pepper strips, broccoli sprouts and thinly sliced scallion at the thicker end and tightly rolled it up. Use a toothpick if your roll won’t stay shut but they should be wet enough to hold.

I used some Bragg’s and lemon for dipping. Simple.

Don’t be afraid to stray from what I did. You can use ANYTHING! Bean sprouts, grated beets, tomato, zucchini, snap peas, spinach, kale, asparagus, lettuce, bok choy, jicama…the list goes on.

You can also use very thinly sliced jicama, kale, swiss chard, collard greens, nori or cabbage as your wrap.

      Well, the avocado was my ‘pate’ element here! I’ve done a miso carrot pate and cashew cheese on these wraps before also. Avocado was my fastest choice today. 🙂

      Oh definitely! My daughter eats these but I usually put some cream cheese in there. Cream cheese & edemame is her favorite!
