Lunch Club – Veg Pledge Rainbow Wrap

Are you making a Veg Pledge? Throughout November people across the UK are challenging themselves to go vegan or vegetarian for the month, which is a campaign we can get behind!

To show our support of this fanatic campaign message, we wanted to share one of our favourite lunchtime recipes, to show that vegan food can be fun, simple and super healthy.

Join the lunch club!

Welcome to lunch club – our monthly series where we share and recipes to inspire your lunch box and complement your favourite Ten Acre flavours. The recipes are always vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free, just like our crisps!

This month we’re making Rainbow Hummus Wraps – crunchy and full of flavour, this lunch will give you a pop of colour on a grey, autumnal day.

Rainbow Wrap Ingredients

  • 2-3 whole grain, gluten-free wraps
  • ½ cup baby spinach leaves
  • ¼ yellow pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 carrot cut into matchsticks
  • ¼ red pepper thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 4 tablespoons hummus
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Prep and rinse the vegetable, so they’re ready to wrap
  2. Spread about 2 tablespoons of hummus in an even layer across each wrap
  3. Layer the veggies (in rainbow order!) over hummus, season to taste and roll tightly.
  4. Pair with your favourite flavour Ten Acre crisps – we chose When the Chilli Got Sweet to complement the naturally sweet salad flavours.

Enjoy!

If you’re trying this at home, we would LOVE to see your creation!  Don’t forget to take a picture and tag us on Instagram @ten_acre_snacks, we might even share it on our feed!

5 tips if you’re going Vegan for Veg Pledge!

This November, people across the UK are taking on the ultimate challenge, to go Vegan for the month! If you’re taking on Veg Pledge, it’s a time to get adventurous in the kitchen and try new recipes, as well as boosting your fibre and vitamin intake before winter hits.

As vegan aficionados, we’ve put together our top five things you’re going to need to know before going Vegan for the month:

1. Find vegan alternative to your favourite foods!

Cheese and chocolate are two examples which come up time & time again when people are unsure about going Vegan. So may we suggest a couple of our picks: Applewood Vegan Smoky Cheese is an ultimate favourite and Tony’s do a great range of vegan chocolate bars, including Dark Almond Sea Salt – yum!

2. Take it at your own pace, this is definitely not a race!

Cutting out meat and animal products all at once is much harder than slowly reducing your consumption. If you’re a vegetarian already, why not removing dairy products to begin with and then start removing eggs, honey etc in time.

3. Seek support

Why not trying to go vegan with a friend or family member? Or join a support group, we can recommend joining the Challenge 22 community, who have an online support group and share daily tips & recipes, to keep you motivated!

4. Find foodie inspiration!

There are so many inspiring influencers sharing recipe ideas on Instagram, or simply search for ‘Vegan Recipes’ on Pinterest, you won’t be disappointed!

5. Always allow treats!

Just because you’re going vegan it doesn’t mean you have to only eat veggies, and including treats makes it so much more fun. Our whole range of crisps is vegan friendly, which make a great treat or addition to your lunch box!
