That's a Wrap
The sandwich has dominated the lunchbox scene for long enough. It's time to make some room in your weekly lunch routine for one of these riveting roll-ups.
Our first selection is a reader favorite— our Grilled Veggie and Hummus Wrap.
Make the most of your fresh vegetables by preparing these great wraps. Pair with a side of potato or pasta salad.
Spinach, Hummus, and Bell Pepper Wraps
Make this super-simple wrap the night before, wrap in parchment paper or plastic wrap, and store in the fridge—just grab it in the morning on your way out the door. Use Flatout Light whole-grain flatbreads to keep calories in check; you can find them at most supermarkets, usually in the bakery section.
Mu Shu Pork Wraps
Chinese restaurants serve mu shu pork with Mandarin pancakes. On a busy weeknight, whole-wheat tortillas are an easy sub. Look for trimmed boneless pork shoulder. If all you see are large cuts, ask your butcher to cut off a 1-pound portion.
Turkey Cobb Salad Roll-Up
Salads are great for lunch, but they don't offer the portability of a sandwich. Combine the two with this delicious roll-up.
Curried Pork Salad Wraps
If you can't find lavash, try lower-sodium flatbreads or sandwich wraps.
Caprese Wraps with Chicken
Pick up a rotisserie chicken for dinner the night before (try these scrumptious options), then use your leftover chicken for this caprese wrap the next day. It's a win-win situation. Multigrain flatbread encases creamy mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, bright cherry tomatoes, and the tangy vinaigrette pulls the whole sandwich together, making it a great choice for lunch or a light dinner. To make it more similar to a traditional caprese, substitute balsamic vinegar for the white wine.
Curry Chicken Wraps with Nectarine Chutney
Add a bit of exotic flavor to a basic grilled chicken wrap by marinating the chicken in a yogurt-curry mixture and topping the chicken with mango chutney, ginger, and fresh mint.
Thai Beef Rolls
These wrap sandwiches take just a few minutes to assemble and make a super-quick lunch. Pair with rice crackers and sautéed zucchini.
Grilled Chicken Wraps
Toss grilled, shredded chicken in a tangy mayonnaise mixture and wrap it up in flatbread along with shredded cabbage and pickles.
Tempeh Greek Salad Wraps
Serve this wrap with pita chips for a Mediterranean-inspired lunch.
Lobster Wraps with Lemon Mayonnaise
Flatbread replaces buttered rolls in this take on the New England classic.
Chicken Wraps with Mango Chutney
Using curry powder gives potential health benefits (when turmeric is combined with black pepper, it becomes an amazing anti-inflammatory agent). Mango chutney sweetens this deliciously spicy lunch option.
