Raw Vegan Wraps and Rolls Rock!

Raw_Veg_Salad_Rolls_with_Marinated_Mushrooms_2771Here’s how to make an everyday raw food lunch that turns your office mates GREEN with envy: raw vegan wraps and rolls are easy to make, colorful, tasty, and beautiful—a skeptic might become a raw food enthusiast just because they want a bite!

Make a simple lunch or snack into a raw food adventure by choosing vibrant seasonal vegetables and fruits (like tomato, red bell pepper, cucumber, avocado, or even citrus, melon or pineapple, to name a few) that look inviting and taste lusciously fresh. If the “proof of the pudding is in the eating,” these raw vegan wraps definitely pass the test, as they are simply bursting with flavor and goodness. Amaze your friends with creative combinations right away—it’s easy to make an interesting variety of raw vegan hand-held wraps or sliced rolls with an array of different fillings.

As an added bonus, it’s possible to make many different wraps from ingredients that may already be lurking in your refrigerator. Spreads, dips, pâtés, and sliced avocado make a great base for your wrap, piled high with vegetables and condiments like raw mayonnaise or mustard, pickles or kraut,  plus fresh herbs and piquant spices to create delicious, portable meals and snacks—wonderful for breakfast, lunch, or a quick dinner on the go. How about a Mexican or Thai Burrito, a Japanese Nori Hand Roll or an Italian Wrap? Not only a wonderful way to use up leftover raw spreads and dips, but you can practice your knife skills: slice, grate, julienne, chop and chiffonade to your heart’s content. The possibilities are endless, and the results are to live for!
