Recipe ingredients:

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. To make the wrap, place the tortilla or flatbread of your choice onto a clean work surface. Spread the cream cheese (or anything “spreadable”) down the middle of the tortilla, form end to end, leaving a little room on the two edges that will be rolled.
  2. Next, add the lettuce leaves by placing them in the middle of the tortilla. Then layer on the rest of the ingredients over the lettuce, staying in one direction so you can roll the tortilla up when you’re finished.
  3. When finished with the ingredients, roll up the tortilla around the vegetables and wrap in waxed paper or plastic to keep the tortilla moist and the veggies fresh. Unlike a burrito, you don’t have to tuck the ends of the tortilla in on themselves.

Recipe tips and variations:

  • Veggies: Use any combination you want, such as zucchini, asparagus, broccoli, bell peppers, or radishes.
  • Avocado: It doesn’t hold up as well as some other ingredients, so only use avocado if you’re going to be eating your wrap soon.
  • Cheese: Try feta, blue cheese, mozzarella, or a smear of garlic & herb Boursin.
  • Toppings: Sprouts, olives, hard-boiled eggs, or fresh herbs are all delicious.
  • Sauces: Mayonnaise, mustard, hummus, pesto, or ranch dressing.
  • Add meat: Leftover chicken, steak, or pork would all be great.
  • Seafood: Tuna salad and shrimp salad are both excellent on wraps.
  • Soggy ingredients = soggy wraps: Try to keep the ingredients as dry as possible, and keep in mind when you plan to eat the wrap. The longer the wrap waits for you, the greater the chance that it will absorb extra moisture from the ingredients.
  • Don’t overdo it: Choose a few ingredients that go great together, but you don’t want to overload your veggie wrap and make it break. Instead, save it for the next wrap!

    1. Hi Betsy, that is for 1. It’s because the wrap has cream cheese and sliced cheese on it. If you want to reduce the fat, you could omit those entirely, use a low-fat version, or substitute something else like hummus. Thanks! -Meggan

    1. Hi Shelia, thanks for the question. Because you asked, I realized that the nutrition label wasn’t showing up at the bottom of the post, so I fixed that. To answer your question, an entire wrap is a serving. So 391 for the entire wrap. :D -Meggan

  1. Looks fantastic! Can’t wait to make this! Also in the nutrition section, I don’t see “ fiber” content?5 stars

    1. I fixed the label! So sorry about that. 3.1g dietary fiber in this thing. If you need anything else, just let me know! Thanks Jennifer!

  2. Y do u have to put cheese in veggie wraps? I don’t like cheese can’t u just make the veggie wraps without cheese?

    1. Hi Celeste, you absolutely do not have to put cheese in veggie wraps! I’m from Wisconsin so I put cheese on everything. You can definitely just leave it off without a problem. Thanks!

    1. I meant to email you and say “Funny you mention vegetables….” but you know how life is. :) Enjoy!!! xo
