These Rainbow Vegetable Wraps with Peanut Sauce are the perfect healthy, portable snack. These wrap sandwiches are stuffed with colorful vegetables, mango, and mint, and then served with an Asian-inspired peanut sauce. Sponsored by Peapod.
I made these Rainbow Vegetable Wraps with Peanut Sauce for one of our Daniel Plan meetings and they were a HUGE hit! I think the combination of all the colorful vegetables and the delicious peanut sauce is what made these wraps so popular. Peapod asked me to develop a healthy, portable snack for them, so that is exactly what these wraps are – they are packed with lots of fresh crunchy vegetables, sweet juicy mango and fresh mint.
These wraps are great for a healthy, portable, on-the-go snack or lunch, and they are equally wonderful for a big party. The key is to include a rainbow of fresh, colorful vegetables and cut them into skinny long pieces so you can roll them up easily. The peanut sauce is built right into the sandwich. You can also include some extra for dipping on the side if you wish.
I used whole grain tortillas but if you want an even lower carb option, leave out the tortilla and just use the collard green leaves to wrap all the veggies in. It will be more delicate though, so just roll gently.
If you’ve never used collard green leaves for wrapping, here’s what you need to do:
Blanch the collard green leaves in boiling water for 15 seconds
Immediately place blanched collard green leaves in ice water
Cut out the stems
Then, get all your filling ingredients prepped. For the prettiest rolls, cut everything into thin strips.
Make the Peanut Sauce
Then wrap the sandwich. Lay out a tortilla and spread some of the Peanut Sauce on top. Place a blanched, trimmed collard green leaf on top. Then, layer a rainbow of vegetables on top, and roll everything up.
These sandwiches are best made fresh and eaten within a few hours of assembling them. You can make the peanut sauce and prep all the ingredients ahead of time. Then, wrap and go as needed. Any extra fillings are great tossed into a salad for lunch or dinner.

Assemble vegetable wraps
Lay a tortilla on a flat surface. Place one blanched, trimmed collard green leaf on top. Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut sauce on top. Lay strips of red and yellow bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, and mango down center of tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded red cabbage on top and lay 4 mint leaves or cilantro leaves on top. Tightly roll up wrap to enclose all the vegetables. Use a few toothpicks to secure the wrap. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Cut in half to serve.
You can prepare the sauce and fillings ahead of time, and make the wraps as desired throughout the week.
