Rainbow Protein Veggie Wraps are a sushi-like lunch idea that couldn’t be simpler… or more delicious. Little bites of healthy protein and veggies, dipped in your favorite dressing. Assembled in 5 minutes or less.
And the texture? Crunchy, fresh and almost sweet with carrots and pepper. A treat for lunch, snacks or even a quick grab-and-go dinner.
8-inch multi-grain wraps or tortillas
Choose a flavorful store-bought hummus or make your own (here are some ideas) with enough for snacking later.
deli meat of choice like turkey, ham, pastrami, beef, etc. Or add cheese instead.
spinach, kale, cabbage, slaw, broccoli slaw, peppers, carrots, microgreens, etc.
for dipping, choose your favorite dressing. My favorite is Lighthouse Sweet Onion dressing but a ranch or Green goddess is delicious too!
Making a Vegetarian Wrap
To make this wrap vegetarian, simply omit the deli meat.
How to Wrap a Tortilla
What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are a green that is harvested after the Cotyledon leaves have developed. They are not sprouts or shoots. Chefs often use microgreens to garnish add delicate texture and enhance flavor. Generally harvested later than sprouts, microgreens provide a sweet and even spicy flavor component. I love to garnish salads, soups… and yes, wraps.
Plus… microgreens are healthy. The USDA recently conducted a study on microgreens and found that microgreens posses a “significantly higher nutrient densities than mature leaves. For example, red cabbage microgreens have a 6-fold higher vitamin C concentration than mature red cabbage and 69 times the vitamin K.”
