RECIPE BACKSTORY
These flavor-packed wraps are full of vegetables for a nutty Asian-inspired dish. I love them for lunch on a hot summer day or even for a lighter supper. And they make a really good brown-bag lunch if you have extras - they are good even cold or room temperature. I love cook once, eat twice and oh it's still really good!
