Whole Grain Holiday Wraps with Vegetables (fun appetizer)

Happy Holiday Wraps
Ready to Roll!

All rolled up!

New product

 I got this fun idea for a fun holiday appetizer. I changed it to make it healthier. This would be fun to take to a holiday party or just enjoy at home. It was fun to find a new product at the store "Greek cream cheese" or you can make your own here. If you are feeling ambitious. I think it would be fun to try different vegetables next time too. You can be creative and come up with your creation.

1 8oz package Greek cream cheese, or Greek yogurt, or cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion flakes
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 pepper
1 tsp basil
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes *optional
4 green onions chopped up
1 red pepper diced
3 T dried parsley or fresh parsley chopped * optional
other options: chopped broccoli, or chopped spinach, and dried cranberries
7-8 wholegrain tortilla wraps or I made these
freshly ground pepper

1. Put softened cream cheese in a bowl. Add the parsley, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, basil, and * red pepper flakes. Stir until it all combined. Set aside.

2. Lay out the tortilla on a clean counter top and divide the mixture evenly on to the tortilla and spread all the way out to the edges. Then evenly distribute the vegetables (You can put on the amount of vegetables you want) on to the tortillas. Then sprinkle on the parsley and pepper if desired.

3. Roll them up. Cover in plastic wrap, and put in the fridge until ready to serve.

4. When ready to serve take out of the fridge unwrap. Slice in about 1/2 inch slices. Place on plate. Serve.
