Rainbow Pinwheels

Rainbow colored vegetable pinwheels with Hope Foods brand avocado ranch dip.
Rainbow Pinwheels with veggies and a nut-based spread.

How fun are these rainbow pinwheels?! Before going gluten-free and vegan, one of our go-to party trays were those turkey pinwheels from Costco. You know the ones. We LOVED them. They were easy to grab quickly for parties or our lunches on-the-go. I know I’ll make a vegan copycat recipe of them someday. For now, I used my inspiration to create some veggie pinwheels of my own!

The Recipe

We found some gluten-free spinach tortillas at our local Aldi’s and couldn’t say no to the color! So, we decided to do a “rainbow” veggie take on the wheels. They turned out DELICIOUS. Plus, how pretty are they?!

For these pinwheels we use a delicious spread from Hope Foods. The have an avocado ranch dip made from cashews and it’s FIRE! So good. We use that as our base, however you can easily substitute the spread for any type of hummus, cream cheese, or dressing you like. We use whatever veggies we have on hand when making these rolls, but we compiled the go-to veggies in our house for this recipe!
