Recipe Directions

Add flax seed and water to the blender and let it sit about 15 minutes while you prep the rest of the ingredients. Then add everything else and puree. Spread into rounds about six to eight inches across on a teflex/paraflex sheet (smaller circles for appetizers, larger circles for entrees). Dehydrate for two hours at 105.

Invert dehydrator tray over mesh sheet and carefully, oh so slowly, probably with the help of a spatula, peel off the sheet. Dehydrate another 30 minutes or so – you want them to be soft and pliable. If they end up too stiff, mist with water from a spray bottle and cover with a dishtowel for a few minutes before stuffing them.

Suasoria's Thoughts

By Suasoria

This is a slightly sweet, slightly spiced wrapper that would work equally well for a blintz (with nut cheese, raisins, dates, and fruit) or a spring roll stuffed with savory veggies for dinner as in the photo. Each wrapper here has a different combo of kelp noodles, avocado, king trumpet mushroom, spiralized carrots, thinly sliced red cabbage, thinly sliced fennel, cilantro, and yellow tomato. Three wraps per person should make a satisfying dinner. On this plate is two large wraps, one appetizer-size wrap, and an appetizer-sized wrap I cut in half. I had to secure them with toothpicks because I overstuffed them!

No problem - let us know how they work with yam. My recollection is that yams don't have a pleasant flavor on their own, so I'd just pay close attention to the seasoning.

I really want to try these. But I want to swap out the sweet potatoes for yams as I have just found an alarming bit of information on raw sweet potatoes, almost making them sort of an 'anti-raw food' food:

"Sweet potato shows trypsin inhibitor activity. That means it contains an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the action of trypsin, an enzyme that digests proteins. The trypsin inhibitor prevents the digestion of protein. Sweet potatoes with higher protein levels have more of the trypsin inhibitor. This makes raw sweet potato difficult to digest. The trypsin inhibitor is deactivated by cooking.

One way the raw food diet helps people is by supplying food enzymes. Food enzymes do part of the work of digesting the raw food. Enzyme inhibitors increase the amount of work that your body needs to do to digest foods. Enzyme inhibitors force your body to produce more digestive enzymes. This uses up resources that could be used to produce detoxifying enzymes. When animals are regularly fed enzyme inhibitors in research, they become sick. Sweet potato should not be eaten raw."

Don't mean to hijack your wonderful recipe, I just felt it was important to share what i learned.

I'm so glad! I will try to dehydrate them longer and see how it goes. I'm kind of impatient!

I love these! they've become a weekly staple. Mine never get soggy, but I dehydrate them longer (4 hours) and just spritz them if they get too dry. I do a whole excaliber sheet, cut in 4. I fill them with tons (fresh corn salad is my current fave + avocado and nacho cashew cheeze) and eat them more like a taco rather than a burrito.

Thank you for the recipe!

Carrie, a few of mine got soggy because I added a sauce. Otherwise, they were not so mushy.

This is brilliant. I have been trying to envision a yucca or (unripe) plantain wrap for some time now. Thanks for posting a great idea with a lovely recipe!
