Dips that go well with these rainbow veggie wraps
These wraps are very versatile and taste great with a variety of dipping sauces – they're a vessel of vibrant, fresh, and crisp veggies. We think they shine with the peanut dipping sauce, but they'll complement any dipping sauce! Here are some of our picks:
How do I make these suitable for paleo or Whole30?
Simply use almond butter instead of peanut butter!
Can I use any other veggies or proteins?
Sure – feel free to customize these as you please. Or top picks include avocado slices for a creamy texture, cucumbers to add a refreshing touch, cherry tomatoes for a burst of sweetness, or spinach, micro greens, or bean sprouts for a light and fresh crunch. For protein, add whatever you would like – tofu works well, but so will chicken, tempeh, steak, or shrimp. If you want to add any fruit slices, mangoes or apples work well. For herbs, add some cilantro. If you have sesame seeds, sprinkle everything with them before serving.
Any tips for closing the wraps?
Place the wraps seam-side down on the plate after wrapping, and if needed, use toothpicks to pierce them closed.
Can I store leftovers?
You can store leftover rainbow veggie wraps in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
