Boy howdy, do I have a healthy recipe for you today.
These low carb rainbow veggie wraps are a tasty way to detox your body and renew your zest for life. (I may be overstating it a bit, but these veggie wraps are seriously life affirming!) And each wrap has just 81 calories and 6g net carbs. Pretty good for the amount of veggies packed into these yummy wraps.
This recipe was inspired by a great recipe for Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups that Lindsay over at Pinch of Yum makes.
Her recipe looked so delicious, that I decided to make a low carb version. The main challenge was to make her Curried Hummus low carb. I did it by swapping out the chickpeas for cooked cauliflower. And her white rice was replaced by, you guessed it, cauliflower rice.
Cauliflower truly is the Zelig of low carb cookery.
In order to make this recipe, you are going to need to mix up a batch of Curried Cauliflower Hummus in advance.
Then you lay out your other ingredients: collared green leaves, cooked cauliflower rice, quick pickled red onions, parsley, sliced carrots, red cabbage and red and yellow bell peppers.
Start by adding cauliflower rice to the middle of a collared green leaf.
Then top it with some of the Curried Cauliflower Hummus.
Add your carrots, red cabbage, pickled red onions, parsley and bell peppers.
Then fold the wrap up like you would a burrito, and add toothpicks on each end to hold it together.
Cut in half and enjoy.
