These super colorful Veggie Rainbow Wraps are served with an easy to make peanut dipping sauce and are as delicious as they are healthy. They're a playful way to serve a veggie tray at a party and make an easy and healthy afternoon snack. They're naturally vegan + gluten-free and can be made paleo + Whole30 compliant if you use almond butter. Win!
I've made us the rainbow!
I know I know I know. I'm basically 4-years-old. But guys, look at how fun these rainbow wraps are? Anything with the word rainbow in the name has to be fun. It just HAS to.
Even veggie wraps become 1.2 bazillion times better when they look like a rainbow. #YouKnowIt
What started out as being a quick and easy healthy lunch recipe or fun after school snack idea quickly morphed into a perfect for everything recipe.
- Beside a sandwich? Check.
- Instead of a sandwich? Check.
- As a super fun veggie tray? Check.
- As a healthy addition to a kid's party? Check.
- Brought to brunch on my second favorite day of the year to celebrate? Check.
- And on and on and on.
When I made these, I knew I wanted them to be colorful, but their rainbowy-ness (making up new words!) blew me away. There's about a 110% chance that I'll be bringing them to my good friend John's annual Pride Brunch this year.
Sidebar → Remember when I shared his Eggy Cheesy Bready Thing recipe? That's code for the best strata ever. He makes it every year for his brunch and eating it is one of my most anticipated moments of the year.
Also, remember those Rainbow Pride Cookies I brought to the brunch a few years ago? I don't know how we went from rainbow cookies to veggie rainbow wraps, but I'm not complaining.
The wraps are made from green and purple Savoy cabbage leaves. The purple is so vibrant it's almost too much to handle. I mean, just look at that color! It doesn't seem real, does it?
The inside of the purple cabbage leaves is crazy bright purple. I wanted you to see it in the picture, so I made the wrap with the inside facing up. I think the best way to wrap these in real, non-picture-taking life is to place the leaves face down so that you see the vibrant color when you roll them up into a wrap.
