Rainbow Wraps

There’s no better way to get lots of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in your diet than by eating a mixture of different brightly-colored veggies–since bright colors in natural foods signal the presence of antioxidant flavonoids. Here, flour tortillas enclose a wonderful melange of fresh raw veggies and hummus for a tender wrap experience that makes a great picnic or lunchbox offering, snack, or appetizer.

Pretty, tasty, and good for you, too:

6 large flour tortillas
1/4 small head red cabbage, shredded
1/4 bunch spinach, chopped
1 yam, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded
1 cup hummus (store-bought works fine)

1. Warm the tortillas in a microwave, grill top, or oven.

2. Place 1/6 of the ingredients in each tortilla.

3. Roll up burrito-style, then cut in half on a slight diagonal.

Serves 6 for lunch, or 12 as a snack or appetizer.
