Gluten Free or Ezekiel 4:9 Wraps (Caroline DeMarco’s Recipe)
Food For Life makes brilliant, delicious and highly nutritious wraps that have become a staple in our house for quick meals. Although not 'raw' they are made from living sprouted grains and legumes and cooked without oils at low heat. They are high in protein and the sprouting process makes them digestible and less likely to cause problems for people with wheat and gluten sensitivities. You can find them in the freezer section of your health food store. The following are some of the raw stuffing ideas we have enjoyed with these wraps. Fill center of wrap, roll and enjoy!
If you can’t find Ezekiel Wraps, use a gluten-free wrap. Other alternatives are plant based wraps:
- Nori sheets
- Lettuce leaves
- Napa cabbage leaves
- Collard greens
- Lacinato kale leaves
- Grape leaves
- Long thin strips of raw zucchini
