This has been a lazy week in our house. We usually have a million after work activities and are running around working out, seeing friends or making dinner. When we finally make it to the couch to catch up on our favorite shows it is close to 9pm. This week though we have slowed down and spent more time making dinner and hanging out at home. Plus, we have plenty of shows to catch up on. Our current favorites are Master of None, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and of course, Bachelorette.
This slower pace has also allowed us to make some delicious dinners and take the time to enjoy them. This dinner did not at all turned out as planned and the kitchen was a MESS but it was healthy, colorful and delicious. We also had leftovers to take for lunch!
There are so many fun and easy ways to customize this meal. I hope you can find a way to make it perfectly to your liking and enjoy!
Also, I need to take a minute to love on this peanut sauce. It is so easy to make and adds so much flavor to veggies. I plan to use it over and over!
Crunchy Veggie Wraps with Peanut Sauce
This delicious wrap can be made with a variety of veggies and wrapped with a tortilla or lettuce. The peanut dressing really gives this dish an extra flavor punch!
- 4 medium sized carrots
- 3 cucumbers you could add or sub bell peppers, zucchini or any other veggie you wish
- 10 oz brown rice I use the Trader Joe's Frozen Brown Rice
- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1 avocado
- 2 tbsp cilantro
- 4 wraps lettuce, collard greens or tortillas
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 clove garlic
Assembling the Wrap
Slice carrots and cucumbers in to match sticks
cook the rice
spread the hummus on your wrap (tortilla, lettuce, collard green, etc) then pile 1/4 of the ingredients on to the wrap
Put all ingredients in to a blender or food processor and blend until combined
This works with a variety of veggies and you could easily add protein like chicken, shrimp or tofu. I love the colors, crunch and most of all- the peanut sauce.
