Veggie Wraps

IMG_8049 I eat vegetables like I breath air… constantly and almost mindlessly.  Some people are addicted to sugar or coffee, but me, I am addicted to veggies. ( I am also extremely addicted to coffee) This is my truth, but I am ok with it.  

All week long I have been hearing about this big game going on this weekend, something to do with a ball and running up and down a field….not quite sure, but I think it might be a big deal to some people.(I know it's the Super Bowl, and I have heard about some deflated balls, but that's the extent of my knowledge)  I have also have been hearing a lot of party planning around this game, food planning, which is something that I do understand. So I wanted to bring a party snack to the mix, and because of my addiction, my mind goes straight to vegetable. I know that there is traditionally a lot of meat, cheese and hot sauce at these said parties, and that's totally cool, but I think everyone wants to have a least one awesome meatless cheese-less piece of food to snack on during half time.  So I give the people what they want. 

So simple, fast and easy to make. Tasty and healthy as can be. Grab and eat with you hands…. and nice to look at. We got the whole package here.   

IMG_7994Pretty much a little bit of everything that I have in my fridge….Shredded red cabbage, carrots, beets. Some sliced of red onion, tomato and red pepper. Hummus and a little mashed avocado

IMG_8029Yes, it may look like a mess, but that's just me trying to make five different things at once. But really, making  these wraps are simple simple. Just take rinsed and dried green or red leaf lettuce, smear on hummus and mashed avocado and pile on the veggies. Roll and stick with a toothpick to keep from unrolling. See…. simple.IMG_8044So many colors…… so much pretty. IMG_7385Wrapped and rolled...Sliced down the middle, just to see all the pretty inside.

IMG_7397These might be veggie wraps, but man, look at those sausage fingers…(hehehe)

Make for lunch, dinner, party, or snack. Eat them for breakfast, dessert or midnight nosh. Whenever, wherever…..YUMMY YUMMY YUM! 

Happy hump day! 


Lettuce Wraps 


Use whatever you want… but this is what I included in mine

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Shredded red cabbage
  • shredded  beets
  • shredded carrots
  •  thinly sliced tomato
  • thinly sliced red pepper
  • thinly sliced red onion
  • hummus
  • avocado

With each wrap, take a large lettuce leaf and cut out the crunchy rib.(you can slice it up thinly and add to wrap. Smear  leaf with hummus and smashed avocado, then layer on a bit of each of the veggies. Wrap or roll leaf in on the veggies and stick a toothpick in center to keep from unrolling. 

Place on a plate and eat or share… Extras are fantastic to have in the fridge!
