Spring has sprung and we're craving crisp, fresh and healthy foods! It's amazing what that first warm sunny day does to a person after the long dreary days of winter. Why is it that we go from craving cozy comfort food to raw fruits and vegetables? There's got to be more to it than just knowing that summer is coming and you're going to be in a swimsuit soon... but that's a talk for another day.
Today, we're all about easy entertaining ideas in preparation for our Masters party this Sunday! Wanting some fun fresh flavors (and not being able to eat lunch meat, #preggoproblems), I decided to give some veggie wraps a try. With great for you foods like bell peppers, avocados, tomatoes, carrots, and spinach these are going to be a guilt-free crowd pleaser.
We mentioned that we had a gluten free solution for you as well! Instead of using the spinach tortillas, you can do this same thing with rice paper! Simply put a strip of cream cheese down the center of the rice paper, top with veggies and roll. Would be delicious dipped in soy sauce or a sweet and sour dipping sauce!
1 package (6 tortillas) - Mission Wraps, Garden Spinach Herb
Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese
1 bell pepper (whatever color you want, yellow would be fun to make it more colorful!) - thinly sliced into strips
1 Roma tomato - thinly sliced into strips
1 avocado - thinly sliced into strips and drizzled with lemon and lime juice to help keep from browning.
1/2 c. shredded carrots
Spread a thin, even coating (all the way to the edges) of cream cheese over the spinach tortilla. Just right of center, lay a line of veggie strips (2 or 3 strips of each vegetable thick) the length of the tortilla. Add a small handful of spinach. Drizzle with mustard. Wrap tightly. Cut in half or smaller 1" pieces for large groups/bite size pieces.
