Makes 40 individual pieces (8 servings)
1 cup roasted red pepper hummus (recipe or commercially prepared), or bean spread (commercially prepared or White Bean Spread with Sun-Dried Tomatoes)
8 whole-wheat tortillas
4 carrots, grated
8 lettuce leaves, 1 cup baby spinach leaves, or 1 5-ounce container sprouts
Spread hummus or bean spread thinly on tortillas. Next, add carrots and lettuce, spinach, or sprouts. Roll up each tortilla and secure with 5 evenly placed toothpicks. Slice into 5 individual rolls per tortilla (one toothpick per roll).
Veggies in a Blanket can be served immediately or kept fresh in the refrigerator for several hours. Prior to serving, allow rolls to reach room temperature for the best flavor. Consume rolls within one day, as the tortillas and lettuce can become soggy.
Variation: Add thin sticks of cucumber or red bell pepper before rolling.
