Crunchy, spicy and creamy savoury wraps. So delicious and the perfect healthy meal or snack when you have some time in the kitchen and you aren't wearing white...more on that in a bit though. This recipe is one to remember -- easy to make and a little exotic.
It all begins with cauliflower, roasted to crisp perfection in a hot oven. It then takes a bath in a vibrant orange coloured,sweet, sour, fiery and creamy coconut-yogurt sauce that's brimming with exotic Indian spices like cumin, coriander, garlic, cardamom, chili, cinnamon, turmeric and paprika. Another trip to the oven with the broil setting makes the bites sticky, sweet and smoky. Irresistible. The awesome cauliflower bites are then loaded into cabbage cups along with a hot and tangy avocado mash, more vegan yogurt, and some red hot for extra kick.
WARNING: Wear a bib and have some napkins on hand -- this s#$& gets messy as f#$%. Who doesn't love a hot mess though?
These wraps are full of healthy vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, avocado), fibre, probiotics (coconut yogurt), antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory spices (all hail turmeric). The ingredients are affordable and not hard to find (grab a tandoori spice mix if you don't have the spices I use instead already). These wraps are also gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, paleo, soy-free, nut-free and rockin'. Just sayin'.
MAKE THESE WRAPS. You know you want to.
