I really do love vegetables! Even though I'm not a vegetarian, many of my meals are meatless. I just love how fresh and clean they are and they make me feel good. They can be presented in any way. Whether it be in a complex dish, or a very simple, no fuss recipe, I'm on board!
These wraps can be adapted to suit your taste. Use whatever vegetables are calling out to you and you can't go wrong. For the wraps, I used the Paleo Gluten Free Tortilla recipe you can find on my blog. Even though this recipe isn't Paleo due to the hummus, I really love those tortillas and they make a great wrap! If, however, you follow a Paleo diet, I'm sure you have your favorite spreads that can easily transform these wraps into a Paleo friendly meal. Creamy Chipotle Cashew Sauce or guacamole would both be great options. Or for a quick idea, fork mash an avocado, sprinkle it with a little salt and pepper, and use that as your spread- so yummy!
When sauteing the veggies, my goal is to avoid mushy vegetables. I prefer them to have a little bit of firmness and crisp left in them. I start with sauteing the onions and spices, then add the peppers, followed by the zucchini. I REALLY don't care for mushy zucchini so that goes in last. I also de-seed my zucchini to help eliminate excessive moisture. That is just a personal preference so prepare your zucchini to your liking.
Spread hummus on wrap, then place sauteed vegetables in the middle and wrap it up!
