In search of a satisfying plant-based wrap for lunch? This vegan rainbow lavash wrap has all the color and flavor you’d expect. You can find the recipe for this dish below, courtesy of my good friends at California Lavash (an incredible all-vegan brand). Cheers!
Humans are visual creatures.
Even if the flavor of a dark, sludgy-looking wrap is fantastic, our pleasure of it will be diminished if it doesn’t appear appetizing. One of our five senses, sight, is being withheld from us.
Why do we waste so much cash on eating out? They not only make sure everything is clean and ready to eat, but they also take the time to make beautiful plates. They provide us delicious dishes that stimulate all of our senses.
For a quick and easy plant-based meal, nothing beats a lavash wrap.
Well, folks, today I’m joining up with my beloved friends at California Lavash to prove that you don’t have to spend a fortune on lunch to have a fantastic time. A restaurant-quality vegan meal may be made in the comfort of your own home.
It’s not hard to stick to a vegan diet. After all, fruits and vegetables come in every conceivable color and shape, simply begging to be transformed into fanciful concoctions by your knife, food processor, blender, or immersion blender.
Various Vitamins and Minerals, Coded by Colour
Nutrition may be improved while simultaneously enjoying the aesthetic appeal of rainbow-themed dishes. That’s because vegetables of varying hues tend to have varying levels of certain nutrients.
You’re undoubtedly aware that phytonutrients (also called phytochemicals) are great for our health since you’ve heard of them. One of the primary arguments in favor of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is the role they play in warding off illness. But did you know that the colours in fruits and vegetables are really phytochemicals?
Yup! One such phytochemical is lycopene, which gives many red fruits and vegetables their color and also functions as an antioxidant.
Carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin are not the only sources of the pigment beta-carotene, which helps maintain healthy eyes.
Plants contain hundreds of different phytochemicals including over 600 different carotenoids. You may be certain that you’re receiving a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants from such a vibrantly colored dish.
Unfortunately, few Americans get their recommended daily allowance of vegetables. Worryingly, I’ve read that as many as half of all Americans don’t consume any fruit at all on any given day. This dish is dedicated to my fellow Americans. Wearing a rainbow wrap is an excellent method to inspire yourself (and your children) to reverse that shocking figure.

The Lavash Is… What?
The ancient Middle Eastern flatbread known as lavash is excellent for making wraps.
Vegan and family-owned for over 25 years, California Lavash uses grandma’s recipe to produce authentic lavash. They’re introducing authentic Middle Eastern flavor to the United States, without the use of artificial ingredients like dough conditioners and preservatives. High-quality, pure components including unbleached wheat flour, filtered water, oat fiber, sea salt, yeast, canola oil, cultured whole wheat, etc. are used….and that wraps things up! Because of this, I always buy their brand when I need lavash.
Also, I forgot to note that they’re an all vegan business. You can tell they are cruelty-free since they all have the vegan label.
You can find this considerate company’s lavash, vegan naan, and pita in thousands of U.S. grocery shops, delis, school districts, and restaurants if you keep your eyes open. Safeway, Raley’s, and Smart & Final are just a handful of the major grocery stores where you may purchase California Lavash. You may use their shop finder to locate a location near you.
The huge rectangular form of lavash makes it perfect for this dish. You may use a big tortilla for lavash if you can’t find any.
Wrapped in Rainbow Lavash (First Version)
Wrapped in a lavash flatbread wrap from California Lavash and spread with garlic hummus, this rainbow vegetable wrap has red cherry tomatoes, orange shredded carrots, yellow sliced tiny bell peppers, white cauliflower rice, green sunflower sprouts, and purple shredded cabbage.
Wrapped in Rainbow Lavash (Second Version)
I spread garlic hummus on a trimmed California Lavash and layered it with colorful vegetables: red small bell peppers, orange shredded carrots, yellow corn, white alfalfa sprouts, green avocado, green cucumber, purple shredded cabbage, and a sprinkling of black sesame seeds.
Okay, Vegan Wrap Time!
The recipe is included below; feel free to use any vibrant vegetables you have on hand. To help you determine which fruits, vegetables, and other items fall under each color group, I’ve included a vegetable color guide below. One can literally eat their way across the spectrum.
- A big tortilla or one lavash
- 14 cup of hummus
- 1 tablespoon of a red vegetable, such as sliced little red bell peppers
- Just a few orange vegetables, such shredded carrots, for a serving.
- 1 tablespoon of canned corn or other yellow vegetable
- A handful of raw greens, such as avocado, sprouts, and cucumber, sliced
- 1 tablespoon of shredded purple cabbage or other purple vegetable
- Optional: 1 sprinkle of black sesame seeds
- Spread out one lavash on a work surface. Spread the hummus on the lavash using a butter knife.
- Sprinkle the hummus with the vegetables in the following order: red (on top), orange (middle), yellow (bottom), and green (center). You may optionally sprinkle some black sesame seeds on top.
- Roll the lavash up from both ends to enclose the rainbow of vegetables in the middle. You may also use a knife to cut the edges of the lavash, bind it in two places with twine (as shown), and eat it taco-style with the open face facing out.
- Tahini (or a lemon-garlic-tahini dressing) is a great addition to a vegan wrap. Completely discretionary, but may add a pleasant touch!
