Lately, I’m in a bit of a wrap phase! And not just any wraps… fresh, crunchy, healthy, vitamin-rich enzyme boosting RAW wraps! Can you blame me? Don’t they look delicious they make your mouth water?
Now I’m not on an all Raw diet ~ but come summertime, I do love that extra freshness in my foods that raw foods deliver. When seasons will change, I will probably really want that bowl of soup… therefore I know I may never be a fully devoted raw foodie. But for now… I sure do turn to more and more recipes that are raw. And guess what, they’re super easy to pull off for anyone ~ even if you have no special diet but just want to spice up your summertime menu plan! How simple, you ask? Well, let me show you….
First let me tell you how excited I got when I found the “Wrap it up – RAW” organic wrap wraps from Naturally Living. They come frozen but defrost really quickly and are separated with paper inside the packaging to make it really easy to grab a few and put the rest back in the freezer. I got so excited at first, that I ate one whole raw wrap all on its own before I even made the filling. There. Needed to get that off my chest. ;) And, they were so darn amazing ~ I will no-doupt buy out all the stock from Organic Garage over the summer months.
For my wraps, I used the delicious raw wraps from Naturally Living and for a nice variety on the plate, I used organic collard greens to wrap my filling in. The two types of wraps are super awesome so it doesn’t matter which ones you do, or do both – you will love a wrap version that’s not as heavy as a flour wrap, especially if you’re concerned about allergies or gluten. This, makes the decisions easy ~ and delicious!
Now for the filling:
Vegan/ Raw Carrot-Slaw Filling
for Organic Raw Wraps and Collard Wraps
- 2 medium carrots, shredded thinly
- 1/2 cup red cabbage, shredded thinly
- 1 medium tomato, diced fine
- 2 tbsp of raisins
- 4 tbsp of Vegan Mayo (Mindful Mayo by Earth Balance)
- some fresh cracked black pepper
- 1/2 tsp of sea salt
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
Mix all ingredients and spices in a medium bowl. Add into the wraps, roll up and enjoy! (use toothpicks to keep them holding together if they keep unrolling)
