Lunch Wraps

Spicy bean wraps, mmmmmmm! Don't they look good? Believe me, you're going to love these.

I do like a wrap as a change from sandwiches. From falafel wraps to veggie sausage wraps

This wrap is a copycat recipe or fakeaway (homemade copy of takeaway food) as they are sometimes called. It's my version of a Tesco wrap that I'm rather addicted to.

You may know I've shared vegan recipes for the last few years, but my son and I are still vegetarian. My husband is vegan, so we mostly eat vegan. It's just easier isn't it and so delicious.

Copycat Lunchtime Wrap

This is a wrap I often buy at lunchtime when I'm at work. I'm totally addicted to it. There's salad, lots of beans. the creaminess of cream cheese, the flavour from cheddar and a kick from a spicy tomato sauce. I thought Graham would enjoy it and it was a shame they didn't do a vegan version, so I decided to create a vegan version at home. 

If you're vegetarian feel free to use a strong cheddar and your favourite cream cheese. You can do this with pretty much all my recipes. Choose if you are making them to suit a vegetarian diet or a vegan diet. I'm giving you the idea and recipe, you just need to decide if you are using dairy or dairy-free.

I don't believe in artificial vegan ingredients. Cook with fresh ingredients and make simple swaps for a vegan diet.


Spicy Bean Lunch Wrap

Simple Vegan Swaps

butter = dairy free spread
milk = almond milk
cheddar = vegan cheddar 
cream cheese = vegan cream cheese
veggie style Parmesan = vegan style parmesan
eggs = flax eggs (1 tbsp ground flaxseeds & 3 tbsp water left in the fridge to thicken for each egg)

That's pretty much it, really simple swaps with products that taste good and aren't artificial to perk up your meals. Apart from these swaps most of our meals are vegetable or bean based anyway.

Really simple ingredients and recipes, that taste great.

Spicy Bean Lunch Wrap

So back to the wrap. I basically picked up one of the Tesco spicy bean wraps and had a look at the ingredients. 

Black turtle beans - tick
Borlotti beans - tick
Spiced tomato sauce - I used a spicy salsa, the original sauce tastes like salsa
Full fat soft cheese - I used Violife Creamy
Lettuce - tick
Mature cheddar - I used Violife cheddar
Red pepper - tick
Mayonnaise - skipped this, cream cheese is enough
Tomato wrap - I used a wheat and white tortilla wrap

The result was very close to the flavours of the original. Super tasty and a new favourite to make at home in minutes. I do hope you try it.

Beet Salad Wrap

If you like my spicy bean wrap, why not try my beet salad lunch wrap?

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


  1. This looks like a great lunch! I am adding this to my summer lunch list!

  2. I'm always looking for new ideas to perk up my work lunches and this looks fabulous! Wraps are a favorite in my house :)

  3. I have eaten a lot of vegetarian but I haven't tried many vegan specialty foods. I would love to try vegan cheese and this looks like a great recipe, thanks for sharing this, it looks so good and healthy.

    1. If you get a good vegan cheese you are flying, but the bad ones are terrible. We like Violife.

  4. Yum, I could eat this for lunch every day. Love the spicy beans and salad combo.

    1. Yes me too and you are right it's a great combo!

  5. I love using sals on sandwiches and wraps, it adds such a great flavour!

    1. Yes salsa adds a lot of flavour. You are so right Brian.

  6. I do love a good wrap, and this looks so filling and delicious.

    I'm not keen on the Violife cheddar - although it is definitely one of the better ones out there - but the Creamy is great. Especially with Marmite on crackers or filling a stick of celery! It also goes really well with sweet chilli sauce. Yum!

    Now my tummy is rumbling! xx

    1. Thanks Nico. We like it although I would like something much stronger. The cream cheese is really fab.

  7. I LOVE wraps! They always trump a sandwich ;)

  8. that looks delicious and I am willing to bet it tastes better than the tesco's one - it is great how you support graham's vegan diet

    1. Thanks Johanna, it's really good. I was happy to cook vegan for Graham and for us once I realised it was easier than I thought and when I realised so many of our recipes are vegan already or simple to tweak.

  9. That's a good idea! As I'm not in any diet, I'd change my meals everyday flexibly. So your wraps look delicious, cannot wait to try it 😋
