There are some recipes that I get so excited to share with all of you. They usually involve chocolate (I’m sure you realized that already), but this time it’s a simple meal that has quickly become a favorite in our family: Thai Peanut Wraps.

 

Crisp veggies, tender chicken, and an out-of-this-world Thai Peanut Sauce

 

So many delicious flavors combine in such a perfect way. As a side note, it also happens to be one of the few ways we can convince our pickiest of eaters to consume veggies. Huge win there 😉

Sweet, Salty and Tangy come together to make an incredible sauce you could lick off your plate (we’ve all done it!) And did I mention how EASY these are to make?

The #1 problem with gluten free wraps is finding a tortilla that is, well, wrap-able. Gluten free tortillas are prone to crumble and tear, but we have found a few that work well for this and other wraps, with a few simple tricks. One of our favorites is Udi’s. Heat a large skillet with a little oil over medium heat and fry the tortilla 20-30 seconds on each side. It will be perfectly bendable!

The second option is a Teff tortilla (we find them at our local health food store). These work best if you warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds on full power. Prepare your wrap quickly while it’s hot and it should stay in perfect shape for you.

 

The secret is in the sauce!

 

Beside the traditional wrap, here are a few other ways we enjoy this dish:

  1. Pile the chicken and veggies over a bed of coconut rice and drizzle with the Thai Peanut Sauce

  2. For a low carb option, place a scoop of veggies in individual leaves of butter lettuce, top with chicken, and drizzle with Thai Peanut Sauce

    Your Thai Peanut Wraps look fantastic. I often crave Asian style dishes. Maybe because it’s impossible to get gluten free take out up here in Vancouver. A special treat for sure.

    Just a word of caution to your Canadian readers … the Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce sold up here does contain wheat gluten 🙁
