Raw Vegan Fast Food: Zucchini Wraps

Raw Vegan Fast Food: Zucchini Wraps

Raw Vegan Fast Food Zucchini Wraps

I’m all about fast food. No, not the kind you pick up in a greasy brown paper bag, but the kind you can make in five minutes and that powers you through your day with superior taste and nutrition!

I’m often on the run and convenience, speed, and flavor are all of paramount importance to me. I also need to be filled up so that I don’t feel starving later on. I want you to know that raw foods are often the fastest way to eat in addition to being super tasty and satisfying. The fact that they’re also incredibly nutritious is just one more bonus.

As a busy mom and professional, I eat meals like this regularly. Yes, sometimes I make things that require more steps and time, but the majority of my meals are simple and fast. I love working with zucchini because you can add just about anything to it and it works so well as a chip, wrap, noodle, and the list goes on. It’s also available in most markets year-round and can be found at a good price.

In this raw food recipe, I’ve used zucchini as a convenient wrap. I sliced it into thin strips with my mandolin, a beloved kitchen tool that lets you get very creative with your raw vegan meals. If you don’t have a mandolin, you can also just slice the zucchini into discs and make more of an hors d’oeuvre type of snack using the same ingredients stacked atop the discs.

Yours in delicious heath,



1-2 zucchini, sliced into thin strips on mandolin
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 avocado
1-2 carrots, thinly sliced on mandolin or with knife
5-10 cherry tomatoes sliced into small pieces


Adjust the amount of ingredients depending on your level of hunger. No right/wrong here.

That’s it. Simple ingredients. No salt, no oil, no fancy pants preparation. Just place some avocado and carrot on the zucchini strips you've created with a mandolin, roll them up, then sprinkle with celery and tomato and enjoy one after the other!
