Looking for a fresh and healthy lunch idea? These quick and easy low FODMAP rainbow wraps will be a family favourite in no time!
Ok, I know what you're thinking. Amy, I am a grown adult and cannot be seen eating a rainbow wrap…
I know, I know! Originally I made these for my low FODMAP kid-friendly eBook. I had planned to leave them there, but they were sooooo good! Like, shockingly delicious! So I'm bringing them here to share with you.
These wraps get their magic from a very grown-up red pepper dip. Plus they're packed with a ton of fresh veggies to keep you boppin' through the new year rush.
I don't know about you, but I could definitely use some vegetables to recover from my 2020 diet! And this is a very efficient and mature way of making sure a wide variety of nutrients and vitamins make it into my diet.
If it helps, you can definitely keep the wrap whole and give it a very grown-up name like “nutrient-dense wrap” or “a wrap packed with fresh vegetables in a variety of colours.” You do you! But this is definitely my new favourite way to eat the rainbow!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
There are only two things you need to keep in mind when making these mouthwatering low FODMAP rainbow wraps!
First, if you're in the elimination phase, you'll need to use a gluten-free wrap. Monash hasn't tested any wraps, yet (seriously, can I speak to a manager?). So brown rice wraps are probably your best bet, since rice doesn't have any FODMAPs (woot!).
Rice tortillas can crack when you're rolling them, so pop them in the microwave or in a warm frying pan (no oil) before you make the wraps. Warming them up will help them be a little more flexible when you're rolling them.
The second thing you'll want to keep in mind is the baby spinach. According to Monash University, baby spinach is low FODMAP in servings of 1.5 cups (75 g) per sitting. Servings of 2+3/4 cups (150 g) are high in the FODMAP fructan. Word's still out on old and decrepit spinach. I'll keep you posted.
Anywho, we'll be using 1 cup of spinach, which works out to 12.5 g per serving. So you'll be well within Monash's recommended range.
The rest of the ingredients won't add anything notable to your FODMAP load, so you're good to go there!
You are what you eat! Check out the notes below to see how many servings of each FODMAP group are in one rainbow wrap.
