Sustainable Picnic Sandwich Wraps
There is no end to the variety of veggies you can use in this wrap, but the main aim is variety, crunch and texture – bonus points for a vibrant colour scheme. Other great additions could be tomatoes, arugula, or red cabbage.
Spice it up. If you like a little extra kick, some chilli flakes or even a chilli sauce such as our vegan Salsa Roja recipe is a nice addition. Or for those who like it mild, consider a sprinkle of dried herbs such as oregano.
This recipe uses mayonnaise, and you can use vegan mayonnaise. But you can also leave the mayonnaise out altogether as the avocado gives the wrap a nice creamy consistency.
