If you’re in need of a delicious, healthy and portable plant-based lunch, look no further! Wraps are your one way ticket to vegan lunch success. To celebrate this fantastic snack, we’ve put together a list of the best vegan wraps.

They feature all different vegetables, irresistible sauces, exciting textures and are as customizable as it gets.

No matter if you’re on a low fat or low carb eating plan, looking to decrease or increase your energy intake, are new to eating vegetables or follow a gluten-free diet, these vegan wraps will offer something for everyone.

Sure, we all know that we should eat ample amounts of veggies, but salads can get really boring really fast especially if you just go for a simple lettuce-and-tomato combo.

But how about rolling those fresh veggies into a delicious tortilla wrap along with a creamy sauce to make a portable and fun to-go lunch? Now we’re talking!

Vegan wraps are the perfect secretly healthy convenience meal that can be prepped in advance, made super budget-friendly and are great for using up leftover food!

If you’ve already pre-cooked grains or have roasted veggies from the night before, a delicious wrap is never more than a few minutes away.

Want your kids to get into eating more vegetables? Rainbow wraps might win them over! They can be a fun little finger food that both works great with kids and can also be brought to any garden party or picnic, or even just served as an appetizer.

Let’s see why we love vegan wraps so much!

How to Make Great Vegan Wraps

The best vegan wraps are the ones made with foods you already like! Think about your favorite vegetables, grains, legumes and sauces – they all probably make great wrap ingredients!

There are a few different components you should definitely include to make easy, delicious and healthy vegan wraps – we’ll share them in a bit.

But first, here are some beginner tips to make the best veggie wraps!

Pretty much any already-made salad or meal can work in a wrap, so if you have leftover potato curry or bean chili, put it in a wrap and take it with you to work the next day!

But sometimes, there’s a problem with reusing meals as wraps. No matter how well you wrap it, occasionally your vegan wrap just doesn’t hold together. 

Here’s the key: your wraps need a nice, sticky base that can hold the ingredients together and give it some substance.

This can be anything from cooked millet or quinoa, smashed beans or avocado, as well as creamy sauces and dips like cashew sour cream, hummus, guacamole or a soy yogurt sauce.

These components also add a whole lot of delicious flavor, texture and nutrients to your vegan wrap!

Even though wraps are usually great for meal prep, not every wrap can be made hours or days in advance – due to different textures and compositions, they can become soggy over time. 

Find more information in the individual recipe posts to see whether or not the wrap is suitable for batch cooking and meal prep!

We usually wrap our pre-made vegan wraps in some kind of foil, vegan wax wrap or parchment paper so they hold together well and are an easy grab-and-go snack.

What to Put in Vegan Wraps

Making plant-based wraps is super easy, and you can improvise with whatever you’ve got hanging out in your kitchen.

Here’s a basic blueprint with some ideas for your different components!

How to Make the Healthiest Wraps

Most large health organizations agree that a predominantly plant-based and whole food diet is the most supportive of good health and longevity.

That’s why the healthiest wraps are also plant-based (or fully vegan) and made from real ingredients. Here are some tips!

  • Choose whole grain tortilla wraps or leafy greens for wrapping
  • Minimize added oil and sugar
  • Choose lower salt baked items and spreads
  • Go heavy on the veggies
  • Add healthy sauces and spreads like hummus, guacamole or cashew cream cheese 
  • Include fiber and protein-rich legumes

These are just some guidelines you can follow if you want to make your vegan wraps as healthy as possible. Feel free to adjust the following recipes to your taste preferences and level of dedication!

  1. There are some great ideas here that I can’t wait to try— thanks!
    I was hungry yesterday and created my own wrap that I’m quite pleased with. I sautéed chickpeas and garlic in olive oil with a little crushed red pepper and salt. Then I added kale, artichoke hearts chopped, kalamata olives along with some of the brine—and cooked until the kale was tender. Lastly I stirred i. A little tahini and fresh lemon juice. I put this mixture on a heated sprouted grain tortilla. 😊
