These Rainbow Wraps are not only colorful and delicious, but they are so healthy!
I used Mission Gluten Free Tortillas for these without toasting them or heating them in any way. They worked very well in this application, even if they are not my favorite all-around tortilla. Follow this link to order them on Amazon.
Mission also makes my favorite new tortillas, and they are also certified gluten free. You can find them at the link above as well. They are the Cauliflower tortillas! I was so skeptical about these, but they felt soft, and the texture is perfect!
I recommend using a very soft cream cheese when you make this recipe. If, like me, all you have around is a block of cream cheese, microwave it for 30 seconds or less. It will be easily spreadable, and when you put it in the lunchbox with an ice pack to wait for lunch, it will harden up and help the integrity of the wrap.
When spreading the cream cheese on the wraps, make sure to spread it from the middle all the way out to one side so that it can help hold the wrap closed.
Purple cabbage is important because it is actually sweet when raw. However, don’t overload it. Only put as much in there as needed to have the purple color in the wrap.
I used vegetables that my kids typically like, but you can, of course, use any that your children enjoy.
I did a fun thing a while ago where I let my son be the one to choose all the vegetables and fruit that we got at the store that week. I brought up a page with pictures and names of all the fruit and vegetables arranged by color. He had to choose at least one from each color category. It was fascinating to find what he liked!
Of course, these wraps don’t have to be for kids. They are colorful, yummy, and fun. And a great snack or lunch for work as well as school. In fact, these were my husband’s lunch as well as my children’s!
