Gluten Free Veggie Wrap

Veggie Wrap in Chia-Corn Tortilla
2 Chia-corn tortilla, heated in the microwave
2 Tablespoons of Lilly's Red Pepper Hummus
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/3 cup grated carrot
spinach leaves

I tried a new gluten-free tortilla the other day, a Chia Corn Tortilla that I found at Whole Foods in the refrigerator section. They are really tasty and filling. I was in a hurry for lunch today and threw together a quick wrap with them.  Because I am still sporting braces, I grated my zucchini and carrot to make them easier to chew. It turns out it makes them more suitable for a wrap too. Only takes a minute to grate them with a box grater, although take care not to nick a finger!

Heat the tortillas between two sheets of paper towels for 15 seconds on high.  Turn and heat for another 15 seconds. Place the tortillas on a plate and spread one tablespoon of hummus on each. Over that layer the spinach leaves, then spoon on half the grated veggies.  Roll them up and cut them in half. Serve with sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Great, delicious high-fiber lunch, free of gluten.

Do those tortillas really work as well as they look like? Do they have to be warmed to work well? Would they work for quesadillas? I ask because I've tried brown rice tortillas - yuck, and too breakable to roll food into. I love sandwiches (or wraps) and really miss them. would be nice to find something that works.

Yes, they really work and seem more pliable than the brown rice ones. Taste better too. Corn ones also work well. These are a corn-chia combo. I warmed mine and would do the same for making quesadillas. I put them between paper towels in the microwave for 15 seconds on high each side.
