These paleo plantain pinwheels with a creamy prosciutto filling are the perfect make-ahead appetizer for any get together.
Today’s guest post is from Chrissa at Physical Kitchness. I haven’t had pinwheels in ages, and this recipe really takes me back. I love the combination of prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and basil.
Chrissa uses plantains to make the tortillas, which makes them gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy- free. Perfect for entertaining a crowd.
Here’s Chrissa with her Paleo Plantain Pinwheels recipe:
If you didn’t grow up having pinwheel appetizers at parties, then I either feel sorry for you or I envy you. Cheese and meat with a variety of fixings, wrapped in a soft flour tortilla, hypnotizing you with that circular pattern to take a bite (or nine). It’s like the most epic, easy, colorful, and FUN party appetizer of all time. However, highly addicting. Like, “maybe I wish these never existed because I.can’t.stop” kind of sentiments.
But pinwheels are BACK and in a big, paleo, dairy-free, grain-free, guilt-free kind of way. Introducing paleo plantain pinwheels.
I’m hypnotized once again with these old party favorites. They have everything—a little savory, a little sweet, and a whole ‘lotta flavor. Imagine this: roasted red pepper cashew cream with a fresh bite of basil and slightly salty, meaty prosciutto, all nestled into soft and sweet plantain tortilla, cut into ‘lil party-sized poppers.
Now stop imagining and start making the best, most impressive paleo appetizer ever. Perfect for any get together, especially Super Bowl parties!
The best part? Simple, real ingredients for Whole30 compliant snacking. And totally customizable. Add whatever additions you’d like for extra personal, ‘not-your-great-aunt’s’ party pinwheels.
All you’ll need for your next go-to appetizer are a few staple ingredients and a killer rolling technique.
