4 C. cooked brown rice (cold)
½ C. diced raw celery (washed)
½ C. diced green onion tops (washed)
½ C. cranberries
½ C. walnuts (chopped) (optional due to nut allergy for some children)
3 T. mayonnaise
½ C. dressing (I use balsamic vinaigrette)
Spices, salt & pepper to taste
2 C. spinach leaves (washed and dried)
1 C. carrot curls or grated carrots
6 colored tortillas (I like spinach and sun-dried tomato or whole grain)
3 gallon size zipper food storage bags

Place cold brown rice in a large mixing bowl, mix in celery, green onion tops, dried cranberries, walnuts, mayonnaise, and dressing. Stir to combine; season to taste.

Lay out the tortillas. Divide the spinach into 6 equal portions and place on tortillas (do not go all the way to the edge or it will be hard to roll). Divide the brown rice mixture into 6 equal portions and place on top of the spinach. Divide the carrots and do the same.

Roll the tortillas as tightly as you can. Place 3 in each zip lock bag. Refrigerate for several hours (this helps them to stay rolled up when you cut them). Cut in circles and place on plate.
