Last week I went to a raw foods potluck. I was almost overwhelmed, everything on the buffet was safe for me to eat!
I can’t remember the last time I had a plate of food like this, unless I had prepared it all myself. There is so much joy in sharing a meal with others, especially when it is the same meal, when all of the food can be enjoyed by everyone gathered around the table.
My contributions to the potluck were my Brigadeiros, a decadent chocolate truffle with healthy ingredients, and these Pad Thai wraps.
The wraps were inspired by this recipe, shared by Heather at Gluten-Free Cat. Heather hosts Raw Foods Thursdays and attends raw potlucks often. She inspired me to give it a try and I’m glad I did. I met fun folks at the potluck, heard Dave the Raw Food Trucker speak again and ate lots of delicious food. Plus there was homebrew Kombucha, which makes my body sing. I hope to go to a potluck like this again soon, but in the meantime, I’m gonna make more of these wraps.
About these wraps: I used a dehydrator to make the wrap, but they may also work in the oven on the lowest possible temperature. If you try it, let me know. And the sauce….well, you’ll want to make it again and again. It’s great not just on these wraps but drizzled over just about any vegetable dish. Or straight off a spoon. Not that I would do that…
A word on preparing these wraps ahead of time: the carrot flax wraps will absorb the moisture of the filling and crumble. If you need to make them ahead of time, I suggest wrapping each wrap in a paper towel. This helps some, but the best way to enjoy these is to make them and immediately eat them. It’s hard not to anyway!
