Fast & Leafy Oriental Wraps

These make a lovely change from bread wraps and are very quick and tasty. 





  • 2-3 large leaves per person. Use lettuce leaves or chard. If it's a crispy lettuce you may need to serve them as 'open wraps' like a bowl with the filling inside. If using chard or something similar, it should be flexible enough for you to wrap up completely
  • Cocktail sticks to hold wraps together


  • Handful of sprouts - beansprouts, alfalfa or mixed 
  • ¼-½ pack flavoured tofu (eg Taifun rosso or basil) OR ½ cup of your favourite cooked beans, eg black or chickpea
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • ½ spring onion, chopped roughly
  • Hoisin sauce, 1-2 tbsp (it's not GF) OR soya sauce with 1 tsp Chinese Five Spice powder mixed in. Use tamari soya sauce for a GF option 
  • Extra vegetables, eg diced peppers, cucumber, avocado...

NOTE. If not using avocado and you want a creamier texture, use some vegan mayo, eg Follow Your Heart, Plamil or the like. Alternatively, make our budget, super quick and tasty Aquafaba Mayo in a minute!


  1. Divide the filling amongst the leaves.
  2. Wrap them up tightly and spear with a cocktail stick if necessary. If the lettuce is too fragile just serve like an open sandwich - chard or certain lettuce types will hold together better than others!
  3. If the wrap is quite large, cut through with a sharp knife. Cut on the diagonal - they look pretty that way. 
  4. Eat as soon as possible. They can be transported in a sandwich box.
