In rice papers, wrap anything that you have in your fridge that sounds good! What a great use for leftovers. Some suggestions:
Experiment! What else can you think of? I have used left over stir fry,coconut rice, etc.
I like to use Earth and Vines dips/sauces, especially the Mango, tequila, jalepeno. All their sauces are no fat and low sodium. They have several varieties and are usually available at Whole Foods.
These wraps will keep for a few days in the fridge. I roll them in wax paper. They are great for lunches. They do not cook, however. Don’t even try it!
Depending on what you use in your wraps, you will get the benefits of brown rice, greens, hummus, red peppers, etc. The phytonutrients and anti-oxidant contents of these foods is well documented and you will benefit your whole family while serving something that tastes delicious AND delivers nutrient packed ingredients. Additionally, the wraps are filling but low in calories and high in fiber…WOW!
