Make these BBQ/ Buffalo cauliflower wraps lower carb by swapping out the tortillas in place of veggie wraps like spinach or beet wraps.
If you’re making them specifically with this recipe in mind, we highly recommend using smaller florets so that you can stuff more into the veggie wraps.
You can use whole leaves in the wraps or shred them to create more body in the veggie wraps.
If you want to make more of a burrito wrap for a vegan lunch box, first fold in both bottom ends before the sides. Next, wrap it in foil or parchment paper, then slice it in half in the middle. The foil/ parchment with help hold the vegan wraps together if you aren’t eating them immediately.
Enjoy the vegan cauliflower wrap with a side of fries or enjoy it as a vegan lunch box recipe alongside veggies or fruit!
You can prepare the cauliflower wings 2-3 days in advance (fresh is best for the crispiest results). You could also rinse and slice the veggies in advance and store them separately in airtight containers until you’re ready to assemble the salad wraps.
Once assembled, we recommend eating the wrap within a day so it doesn’t become soggy.
