Spicy Tortilla Pinwheels/Rolls - Easy Peasy

Spicy Tortilla Pinwheels/Rolls - Easy Peasy 

Today's post would be very short, just wanted to keep the blogging steam going. Long weekend was much awaited and was very productive. After the remodel this was the first long weekend, so got a chance to un-box and organize at home. Tiring as it was, glad that the we can now walk in the garage without the fear of tipping. Remodeling saga made me realize the amount of unwanted junk that we have piled over the years. After giving away,donating and throwing away , home sure feels airy and light:)

Weekend was not all work though, had attended few parties and hosted few too. Nothing beats an evening spent with like minded friends, decided to make this vegetable pinwheel/rolls as appetizer.

Preparation time about 20 Minutes
Makes for about 20 pieces

This recipe is totally customizable according to your taste and liking, replace/add  the choice of your vegetables and spread.

4 tortillas
spicy blackbean and chipotle hummus- use your choice of spread
1 zucchini peeled and sliced finely
1 carrot peeled and julienned thinly- you can add vegetables like bell pepper, jicama, cabbage etc..
cup of green onion chopped
cup of cilantro cleaned and chopped
1/4 cup of mint finely chopped

2 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp garlic salt-  choice of flavored salts
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1. Mix all the greens in a bowl and keep in separate
2.Lay flat tortilla and spread a generous about of hummus
3. Now layer all the vegetables and spread along the tortilla
4. Add generous about of greens
5. Sprinkle dry spices according to your taste.
6. Now gently roll the tortilla,taking care not to spill the filling
7. Cut tortilla into 5~6 rounds

Serve them chilled or at room temperature, wanted to make some peanut dressing but never got a chance to do as I ran out of time, but if you do please try the below dressing super easy and very tasty.

Peanut dressing
Makes for 1 cup
3 big tbsp of chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp of white vinegar
1 tbsp red chili paste
salt according to taste
tbsp of lemon juice
pinch of brown sugar

Mix all the ingredients well in a bowl and allow to sit for few minutes, goes very well with the rolls.
