There’s a lot to love about a good old lunch wrap: They’re easy to make, super portable, and bursting with flavor in every bite. Check out some stellar wrap recipes below, which cater to nearly every palate.

Vegetarian

Chickpeas and tzatziki are the stars of this wrap. This recipe calls for making the tzatziki from scratch, but once you’ve tasted it, you’ll see it’s totally worth the extra time and way better than any store-bought variety. Plus, there’s a handy video that will help you with the prep.

No flour, no problem! With cabbage, peppers, onions, and avocado, this vegetable wrap is basically a portable salad. The pesto here is completely plant based, so all you have to do to make this vegan is leave out the feta.

This wrap is basically a burrito, packed with corn, beans, guacamole, and peppers. Add quinoa for a sizeable dose of protein to round out the hearty, vegetarian meal.

These vegan wraps are simple and full of flavor. Start by spreading the avocado mash on a whole-wheat tortilla. Then pack in the roasted veggies (this recipe calls for peppers, onions, and cauliflower, but you can really use whatever you have on hand) seasoned with paprika, garlic powder, and oregano.

This recipe gets its name from the homemade sunflower hummus, but if you don’t have the time (or patience) to make it from scratch, you can pick up some at the grocery store. (Just be on the lookout for added, unwelcome ingredients like sugar if you go the store-bought route.)

Meat

Keep in mind that for this bundle of joy, you have to marinate the steak for two hours (overnight would be even better). After that, it takes about 20 minutes to cook the steak, which is the perfect time to chop the vegetables and whip up the yogurt sauce.

Need a quick lunch that’s dairy-free, gluten-free, Paleo, and even Whole30-friendly? Look no further. Add the slow-cooker chipotle pulled pork to your weekend prep and then you can throw these wraps together in 15 minutes flat any day of the week.

This collard green wrap is basically a healthy twist on chicken salad, and we can’t get enough of it. Skip the mayo in favor of a dressing made from olive oil, garlic, orange juice, honey, and salt.

This juicy combination of mango, bacon, avocado, and chicken can be on the table (or in your lunch box) in less than 30 minutes.

Head for your spice rack. This wrap is seasoned with a delicious combination of paprika, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Since the recipe calls for marinating the chicken and making homemade hummus and chutney, it’s best to save for a day when you have plenty of free time (and some guests to impress).

Pretend it’s fall any time of year or jazz up your Thanksgiving leftovers with this cranberry, turkey, and almond wrap. Opt for Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise to make the dish a bit better for you.
