Looking for a delicious plant-based wrap recipe to enjoy for lunch? This vegan rainbow lavash wrap is loaded with nutrients, and it tastes as good as it looks. This recipe was generously sponsored by my friends at California Lavash (an amazing all-vegan company), and you can find the recipe below. Cheers!

We eat with our eyes first.

Sure, a brown sludgy-looking wrap can taste glorious, but our level of enjoyment undoubtedly goes down when food doesn’t look beautiful. We’re missing out on one of our five senses: sight!

Why do we throw down so much money at restaurants? Yes, they prep our food and wash our dishes, but they also create dishes that look as good as they taste. The present us with food that excites all of our senses.

Lavash Wraps Make A Perfect Easy Plant-Based Lunch!

Well, friends, today I’m teaming up with my dear friends at California Lavash to show you that you don’t need to hand over your hard-earned dollars at a restaurant to get an incredible lunchtime experience. You can prepare your own five-star vegan lunch right at home.

With vegan food, it’s pretty easy to do. After all, fruits and veggies come in every shape and color imaginable, just waiting to be chopped, sliced, spiralized, julienned, pureed or blended into fantastical creations in your kitchen.

One of my favorite ways to make food beautiful is by pulling inspiration from one of Planet Earth’s most spectacular phenomenon: rainbows.

Nutrients By Color

Not only is rainbow-inspired food insanely beautiful (and fun!), but it’s also a great way to step up your nutrition game. That’s because different colored veggies often contain different nutrients.

You’ve probably heard of phytonutrients (aka phytochemicals) and know that they’re extremely beneficial for our health. They’re widely associated with disease prevention and one of the big reasons why it’s so important to eat fruits and veggies. But did you know that some phytochemicals are actually the pigments that give fruits and veggies their color?

Yup! For instance, lycopene is a red-colored phytochemical (that also acts as an antioxidant) found in many red fruits and veggies (like tomatoes and watermelon).

Similarly, beta-carotene, a carotenoid that supports eye health, is found in lots of orange-colored foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin.

There are more than 600 carotenoids present in various plants, and tens of thousands of phytochemicals. So as you can imagine, when your plate is this colorful, you can be sure you’re getting a massive and diverse array of nutrients, phytonutrients, and antioxidants.

Sadly, most American’s don’t eat anywhere near enough veggies. I’ve even read that upwards of 50 percent of Americans don’t eat a single piece of fruit in a day (yikes). So…this recipe is for you, Americans! A rainbow wrap is a great way to motivate yourself (and even your kids!) to turn that horrifying statistic around.

What the Heck Is Lavash?

Lavash is an ancient Middle Eastern flatbread that is perfectly suited for wraps.

California Lavash is a vegan family-owned company that has been making traditional lavash for more than two and a half decades (using grandma’s recipe). They’re bringing the taste of the Middle East to America without the use of any preservatives, chemicals, or dough conditioners that we see in so many products today. They use only the highest quality clean ingredients like unbleached wheat flour, filtered water, oat fiber, sea salt, yeast, canola oil, cultured whole wheat…and that’s about it! That’s why they’re my go-to brand for lavash.

Plus…did I mention they’re a fully vegan company? You’ll see that beloved vegan label on all their packages!

If you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll see this thoughtful company is bringing lavash, vegan naan, and pita to thousands of grocery stores across the U.S. as well as delis, school districts, and restaurants. You can find California Lavash at many mainstream supermarkets like Safeway, Raley’s, and Smart & Final. Check their store locator to find them near you.

Lavash is ideal for this recipe because of the large rectangular shape. But if you can’t get your paws on lavash, you can always use a large tortilla!

Rainbow Lavash Wrap (Version One)

I made this rainbow veggie wrap using cherry tomatoes (red), shredded carrots (orange), sliced mini bell peppers (yellow), cauliflower rice (white), sunflower sprouts (green), shredded purple cabbage (purple), atop garlic hummus on a lavash flatbread wrap from California Lavash.

Rainbow Lavash Wrap (Version Two)

This wrap I made using mini bell peppers (red), shredded carrots (orange), corn (yellow), alfalfa sprouts (white), avocado (green), cucumber (green), shredded purple cabbage (purple), and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds atop garlic hummus on a trimmed California Lavash.

    Oh, how I love this recipe! Super colorful, loads of flavor and tons of texture. Michelle is so right when she writes that we eat with our eyes first. The brightness and cheerfulness of this wrap just makes me smile so much! Instead of the green spinach, I sometimes add slices sugar snap peas or little broccoli florets. The hummus truly gives this crispy salad a lovely, moist component that it needs to be perfect. I could eat this every day!

    Wraps are a lunchtime staple, and the more colors you add in, the more nutrients there are—AND it’s more delicious! I’m a little obsessed with rainbow food recipes. I love that there are many rainbow recipes at World of Vegan.

    You really can’t go wrong with these rainbow lavash wraps! Simple, colorful, flavorful, and so easy to customize! I’m a big fan of roasted red bell peppers rather than raw.
