Sun-dried Tomato Corn Wraps (raw,vegan, nut, gluten-free)
Add to favorites
It’s a wrap! A Sundried Tomato Corn Wrap that is! And might I add, a delicious one?! Wraps can be tricky to make but don’t let that scare you away. Never be afraid to experiment and play around in the kitchen because who knows what you might create. I mean, someone invented the burritos, right? The reason I say that wraps can be tricky is because you always need to use an ingredient that help the wrap be flexible. I have made many wraps and many of them turned out…. crunchy, which can be a win all by itself after all chips are always great to have on hand. :) So if you decide to get adventurous and make your own wraps be sure to add either flax meal and or psyllium husk powder. Both work great to help keep the wrap pliable.
If your wraps get to dry while in the dehydrator, just run them under the water faucet for second and then dab with a paper towel. This will help soften them so you can roll up your favorite ingredients inside. You can keep your wraps in a large plastic ziplock bag in the fridge, cause you never know when the urge to wrap might hit.
Ingredients: 8 wraps (1/2 cup batter each)
- 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, rehydrated
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 2 cups organic corn
- 1/2 cup ground flax-seed
- 2 Tbsp psyllium powder
- In a small bowl cover the sun-dried tomatoes with hot water to rehydrate. Set aside
- In a food processor, fitted with a “S” blade, add the water, apple cider vinegar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, black pepper, salt and cayenne. Process together.
- After soaking the tomatoes, drain the soak water and add to the processor along with the corn. Process until everything is broken down.
- Add ground flax and psyllium and process until the mixture is well combined and you don’t see any chunks.
- Line the dehydrator tray with the teflex sheet or parchment paper. Do not use wax paper, the wraps will stick to it.
- Measure 1/2 cup of batter per wrap. Spread into a 6″ circle with a off-set spatula.
- Dehydrate on 115 degrees (F) for approximately 4 hours or until they are dry enough to flip over and remove the teflex sheet, leaving the wrap on the mesh sheet. Continue drying for a few hours. The wraps might get stiff for wrapping, run under the water faucet real quick and dab the excess water off with a paper towel.
- Store in a ziplock bag in the fridge for several weeks.

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
