Garden Wraps

I’m no June Cleaver, but I will go that extra mile to make sure the kid eats a healthy and delicious lunch at school. It’s important to include kids when making meals, especially when it comes to eating vegan; they'll be more open to the idea if they can be involved. We’ve been lucky that The Sixth Grader has embraced veganism so willingly and he loves participating in cooking and meal-planning. So he was getting a little bored with St. Ives ham sandwiches, so together, we came up with a new idea: Garden Wraps. Yes, there is work involved—I spent some time Sunday afternoon making them, but golly, Wally, they are so good and worth it!

Garden Wraps

Garden Wraps


Spinach wraps/tortillas


Cucumber, diced

Carrots, julliened

Red onion, chopped

Celery, sliced

Tomato, diced

Avocado, sliced

Daiya cheese

Optional: cooked Boca “chicken” nuggets, diced


Layer on 2-3 spoonfuls of hummus on a torilla, then the rest of the ingredients.

Fold in the sides first, then roll from the bottom. Slice in half and wrap with plastic wrap. I made several for both The Sixth Grader and I for lunch this week—it’s a quick and healthy snack/lunch to grab, especially if you don’t have a lot of time. Enjoy!

Grab and go!
