Kid-Friendly Sushi Wraps are easy, fun to make and are delicious as a snack or lunch meal. This recipe puts a unique spin on the ever-so-popular tortilla cream cheese pinwheels.
Don’t worry, these kid-friendly sushi wraps do not include raw fish, seaweed or rice, but with the help of imagination they look like sushi. Filled with veggies, cream cheese, parsley, and sandwich meat, this recipe appeals to many (picky) people. My daughter didn’t notice she was chowing down on some ‘green’ stuff and she is a very picky eater. She would eat ketchup every day as a meal if we let her.
Kid-Friendly Sushi Wrap Recipe Instructions
Step One: Gather Ingredients.
- Flour tortillas (burrito size can make more in one roll, but all I had at the time were the smaller tortillas)
- Sandwich meat (Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef or Chicken)
- A Block of Cream Cheese (softened)
- Fresh Parsley
Step Two: Cut the carrots and cucumbers into long and skinny strips. Finely chop the parsley.
Step Three: Mix the parsley with the softened cream cheese in a medium bowl.
Step Four: Spread the cream cheese mixture on the flattened tortilla. Place the sandwich meat towards the side of the tortilla you will roll up first. Top with cucumber and carrot slices.
Step Five: Roll them tightly into burritos and then cover with plastic wrap. Set them in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
Step Six: Take off the plastic wrap and cut them into smaller bites. Continue cutting all the wraps and that is it! Now you have a variety of kid-friendly sushi wraps to replace the mundane sandwich you have been making for the past few days.
Serve or save for your child’s next lunch. These scrumptious wraps also make great snacks. My husband took them to work and I got a text mid-afternoon that they were ‘delicious’. Score!
I love these kid-friendly sushi wraps because it is a crowd pleaser and doesn’t require a lot of time to make. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting a few hours when they are chilling in the fridge. If you don’t want to make the wraps with flour tortillas you can make sushi wraps with bread.
