As we prepare for Mack to head to college, I’ve been operating on my tiny-finger lunch game. He’s a strong eater but I do like obtaining entertaining alternatives. Plus, these vegetable crepes are not just for little ones. I enjoy to pack these cream cheese roll-ups for auto trips and hiking trips.

Why Crepes for Cream Cheese Roll-ups?

I enjoy a superior lunch sandwich but occasionally we do not have bread or I like some thing a tiny lighter. These crepes are quick to make after you get the hang of the pan swirl and ideal of all, you can make huge batches to freeze.

Bob’s Red Mill Wheat Flour

One particular of the other factors I enjoy crepes: they are super quick to make with option flours. Complete wheat is my go-to which is why I was excited to make these crepes with Bob’s Red Mill Complete Wheat flour. Of course, you could often switch it up and use all-objective or even oats (like in these other savory crepes I’ve created!)

Vegan-it

Whilst there are some brands of vegan cream cheese, which you could effortlessly use, I choose to mix it up a bit. My preferred way to make these vegan is use a superior hummus. The hummus operates effectively with the herbs. Other alternatives include things like roasted garlic, roasted red pepper, and/or sun dried tomatoes.

The vegetables

Lastly, when it comes to the vegetables, use what ever you have on hand. These wraps are forgiving and truly operate with something. Beyond the fresh vegetables, roasted vegetables or grilled vegetables operate as effectively. I obtain these entire wheat crepes can truly go any path you may well want to take them.
