Kids in the Kitchen! No, these aren't candy wraps you see, they are veggies! Colorful, dreamy and oh-so-delicious. Did I mention that these veggies are super fun too? Well they are. It's part two of 'crafty art' that kids can eat! First you saw Fruit Rainbow Wraps, now check out Veggie Rainbow Wraps...
Veggie Rainbows. For a more savory rainbow wrap choose an array of veggies:
Red: roasted bell pepper, tomato, radish
Orange: bell pepper, carrot, sweet potato, pumpkin
Yellow: corn, squash, yellow tomato, yellow beets
Green: greens (assorted varieties), edamame, peas, avocado, broccoli, asparagus, bell pepper, zucchini, celery
Blue/Purple: Radicchio, olives, purple potatoes, onion, beets, eggplant, cabbage
Veggie Rainbow Wraps
makes 2 mini wraps, vegan
1 whole wheat wrap (lavash wrap)
3 Tbsp vegan cream cheese
2 cups chopped veggies, rainbow colors
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
dash or pepper (optional)
1) Slice your large wrap into two smaller rectangle pieces.
2) Spread 1 1/2 Tbsp of vegan cream cheese on each wrap.
3) Sprinkle a bit of salt and/or pepper on the cheese (optional). Set aside.
4) Chop all your veggies into small flat cubes, about the size of a large raisin. Place in a large bowl or arrange by color on a plate.
5) Spritz veggies with lemon juice to preserve colors and prevent oxidation.
6) Set up the workspace and instruct the kids on what to do-build a rainbow out of the veggies.
7) Before rolling the wrap, you can spread the veggies around a bit if needed. Roll up! (Adults may need to do this part.)
8) Eating time! Slice the wrap into 5 small spirals. Time to munch your rainbow rolls.
9) Garnish with leftover veggies.
