My tried and true formula for the perfect veggie wraps makes an easy lunch that you won’t get bored of! Customize these delicious veggie wraps with your favorite colorful vegetables and sauces.
My days are often packed to the brim. Between running multiple blogs, recipe development, exercising Rhubarb, and trying to be a normal person with a social life, my days go by fast.
On my really busy days (you know the ones where you forget to eat), I reach for something super fast for lunch. Which is usually a sandwich or veggie wrap of some sort. I grab whatever vegetables I have in the fridge and pair it with a sauce from a recipe I’m working on.
And because I eat these all the time, I’ve perfected how to make them. Needless to say, I’m very excited to share with you my formula for the perfect veggie wrap that you won’t get bored of!
Why you’ll love it
- Customize these wraps with whatever vegetables and sauces you have on hand.
- Refreshing flavors come together in these cold wraps making them a great choice for when you want something a little lighter and brighter.
- Quick & easy to make, wraps made with fresh vegetables are the ultimate lunch that’s ready in 10 minutes.
Ingredients for Vegetable wraps
Below I’m going to list some filling ingredients for these wraps that I love but use them as a guide. Your vegetable wraps can be as unique and special as you are!
- Tortillas: I like to use large spinach burrito wraps but any large tortillas will work!
- Hummus: Hummus is a great sauce option because it’s slightly sticky which holds everything together. However, you can be creative here and use tzatziki sauce, spinach artichoke dip, or even romesco sauce.
- Vegetables: My favorite vegetables for wraps are ones with lots of different textures. So, avocado and tomato for creamy, carrots, bell pepper, cucumber, and red onion for crunch, and spinach because we need some leafy greens in there!
Sarah’s Tip: Best Tortillas For Wraps
The trick to restaurant-quality wraps is to use really large tortillas. They need to be burrito size or larger to have enough surface area to wrap up all the layers of fillings! But not all wraps are created equal. I’ve found the best wraps for this recipe (i.e. the wraps that won’t tear when you roll them) are the “Ole Extreme Wellness” low carb tortillas. I use them for their durability, but the low carbs are a bonus!
How to make Vegetarian Wraps
Making these healthy wraps requires no cooking and you can save time by batch chopping the ingredients. Here are the basic steps to make the wraps.
- Arrange the wrap with the hummus first then layer in the vegetables.
- Roll the wraps by folding in the edges and then rolling.
One thing to note about these wraps is as they sit, the tortilla will get soggy. To avoid this, try to store the filling ingredients separately and only dish up what you think you will eat.
If you do have leftovers in the tortillas, those will keep for 3 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
Why this Recipe Works
- Do what you love by using your favorite vegetables, sauce, and wrap.
- The hummus keeps the tortillas together and helps it not get soggy as fast from the vegetables.
- Shredded carrots honestly make all the difference! I’ve tried wraps with sliced carrots and while they add great flavor, they are always falling out and too crunchy. Shredded carrots are the perfect way to get the flavor but not have the fillings fall out.
Can I make these wraps in advance?
Yes, well partially. All the interior ingredients can be prepped and then when ready to eat, just assemble all together.
How do I roll a wrap?
In order to roll the wrap, make sure the tortilla is large enough and fold it into the side first then roll.
What sauces can I use?
While I love making my veggie wrap recipe with hummus (especially flavored hummus!), you could also use pesto, cream cheese, or mayo.

- 1 large tortilla
- 2 Tbsp hummus
- ¼ of an avocado sliced
- ¼ of a tomato sliced
- 1 handful shredded carrot about ½ of a carrot
- 1 handful sliced red bell pepper about ⅛ of a pepper
- 1 handful sliced cucumber about ⅛ of a cucumber
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 2 Tbsp diced red onion
- Arrange: Spread hummus onto the tortilla, leaving a little free space around the outside. Arrange fillings in wide row in the middle of the tortilla.
- Wrap: Fold the sides over the fillings, then roll up your wrap, tucking the side closet to you over the fillings and rolling away from you. Firmly squeeze the wrap to contain everything, then slice in half and enjoy!
