Buffalo cauliflower wraps

JonPaul always teases me that “Grace in the Crumbs” should really be titled “what Katy’s having for lunch”.  He thinks he’s funny.  And I think he’s kind of cute, so I let his awful jokes slide 😉

But in all seriousness, most of the food I share on the blog IS what I’m having for lunch. I really try and share with all of you, real meals and recipes that I make in my own kitchen.

Like this buffalo cauliflower wrap.

Wraps are some of my favorite “go-to” lunches during the week. I love having a dressing or two on hand that I can drizzle over any type of veggies, and then a simple slaw that can be kept in the fridge all week and added to different wraps or sandwiches. I put it all together for a quick easy lunch that’s healhty and delicous.

For this buffalo cauliflower wrap, I used roasted cauliflower that had been tossed in a few spices, and my favorite buffalo sauce and made a crunchy carrot and cabbage slaw to go with it.  To drizzle on top, I made a creamy avocado crema filled with lime, cilantro, coconut milk, and avocado.  The perfect creamy and cool addition to balance out the heat and tang from the cauliflower and slaw.

The whole wrap comes together with a few cucumber slices on top and you’re done.  I love how the creamy avocado crema, the crunchy slaw and cucumbers, and the firey roasted cauliflower all come together for one satisfying bite.  And my idea of the perfect lunch!

Blend on medium speed for about 30-60 seconds or until the puree is nice and smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning (may need to add a few drops of water if the puree is too thick).
