Beet Salad Lunch Wrap (vegan)

A salad wrap with a powerhouse of flavours and textures including pickled baby beets, sundried tomatoes and pesto.

Doesn't that look good? It's my favourite lunchtime wrap. And when I say favourite, you can fill in the blanks and figure out I eat this a lot. It is so darn tasty.

The beets are pickled, the tomatoes are sundried for that rich flavour, the peppers are sharp and crunchy as is the juicy cucumber. The salad leaves are the filler and the tortilla is spread with dairy free pesto before the toppings are pilled on. It's a flavour explosion in the mouth!

As you can see I fill it rather generously, so when it comes to wrapping it and eating it, I do have to be careful. Does that make me add less the next time I make this scrummy wrap? Hell no, I add just as much, if not more. I just have to have some kitchen paper to hand for any escapees.

Sometimes I add a few dollops of Violife cream cheese to the tortilla too and I have to say that is rather good too. My vegetarian readers might like it with some fresh mozzarella added. I warn you though, don't add vegan mozzarella, as that wouldn't be a thing of pleasure.

I was feeling generous today and served my wrap with a small bowl of crisps (chips to my American readers) and a glass of mango cordial. I don't usually stop long enough to add anything on the side. I am usually too eager to dive in.

One warming to you. If you are making this delicious wrap for your lunchbox, roll it in some kitchen paper before wrapping it tightly in tinfoil. Otherwise some beetroot juice or oil from the sundried tomatoes or pesto can escape. That kitchen paper is a necessity if you aren't eating this right away. Mark my words!

How I love thee beetroot

Let us count the ways!

  1. Raw and grated

Or just straight out of the jar with a spoon! Yup! I'm that refined and shan't tell you about climbing onto a kitchen unit as a child to reach the cupboard so I could eat French mustard out of the jar with a teaspoon. Nope, not telling you that story. Me, I have no bad habits. NONE! I am a lady!

  1. I love beetroot a lot! I think this veggie is a very much underrated superfood veg, sadly... I would love this wrap for lunch or dinner as I know it would taste delicious! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Yes me too. I get through a lot of fresh and pickled beetroot, although pickled baby beets are my favourite. Has to be Baxters though.

  2. I love the addition of sundried tomatoes and, of course, pesto. You can't go wrong with either of these ingredients. It's so encouraging to see another vegan recipe to add to my collection. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love beets!! This wraps sounds perfect!

  4. This looks so fresh and delicious! Your photography is gorgeous too!!

  5. I love to have wraps in my lunchbox as well. Such an quick and comforting meal. Your wraps are looking tempting and i can imagine the beets and the salads are going well together.
    Thaks for sharing Jacqueline <3

    1. Thanks and yes the flavours go together really well.

  6. What a lush wrap and a great idea to give my veggie daughter. I seem to have fallen out of the habit of making wraps so thanks tor the reminder-)

    1. Yes wraps make a nice change to sandwiches. I hope she enjoys them.

  7. Beetroot are one of my favourite foods. We grow them at the allotment. This wrap looks so crunchy and fresh!

  8. I love beetroot, but usually just have it on a salad. But this looks lovely and I like the idea of beetroot and pesto together.

  9. I think this wrap is going to be a regular for our lunch. My husband is a big fan of wraps and I am always looking for a variety of fillings.

  10. I have to admit that I really don't like pickled beetroot at all but I love it boiled, steamed, roasted, grated raw... basically every way except pickled! I would totally have plain boiled beets in this wrap though, and I love that you've used pesto too, so fab. And I love the crunchy veg with salad leaves as well - this is definitely a keeper! xx

    1. Oh it's definitely a keeper. Me, I love all sorts of pickles and pickled veg. YUM!

  11. I love wraps and the more veggies you pack in the better!

  12. this is gorgeous!! must try as I bet its delicious, too! do you think adding a bit of hummus would make it even more so?
