Why I Created This Recipe
I was gifted some local organic corns the other day and those are the sweetest corns I’ve ever had! So I wanted to create a raw vegan recipe using those corns that can truly express the sweetness of the corns. My original idea was to make some raw vegan corn flakes. However, while I was checking the mixture halfway through the dehydration process and trying to flip it for further dehydration, I realized how flexible and pliable the mixture has become. Hence, I took half of the mixture out and used it in replacement of a flour tortilla for my wrap. This is how I came up with this Raw Corn Tortilla Wrap recipe.
Team Wrap All The Way
I have always been a salad gal when it comes to lunch and dinner. However, for packed lunch, I prefer making wraps as it’s quicker to eat and you don’t need a box to pack them. Most importantly, you can be super creative when it comes to what you include in the wraps. Some people prefer sandwiches but I am team wrap all the way!
Next-level Tortilla Wrap
This Raw Corn Tortilla Wrap is so good that it’s the best and the only wrap I use now when I am making a wrap. If properly made, these wraps are sturdy and won’t turn soggy easily. Moreover, unlike flour tortillas, you will find a depth of flavor in these raw corn tortilla wraps. Therefore, you will never go back to flour tortillas after tasting one of these. You will need a dehydrator for this recipe, but I can assure you that it’s definitely worth it!
Since this wrap itself is already very flavorful, you don’t really need a lot of seasoning or dressing to make the wrap interesting. Here are some of my favorite fillings suggestions:
- Teriyaki tofu
- Tahini Miso Tempeh
- Dehydrated Broccoli Pizza Bites
- Alfafa sprouts
