Rainbow Lunchbox Pinwheels


  • 1/4 cup *Sun Cheese or hummus
  • 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 1/2 inch slice purple cabbage, chopped (you don’t have to be exact on this)
  • 1/2 cucumber, cut into thin slivers or matchsticks
  • 3/4 to 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 2 sun dried tomato wraps

Sun Cheese

  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds, soaked 3 hours and drained
  • 1/3 cup filtered water
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. agave, or more, to taste

Ranch Dipping Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp. pesto Vegenaise (or Just Mayo + 1 tsp garlic herb seasoning)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. plain, non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp. prepared coarse ground mustard


Preparation Instructions

Serves 2

1. Blend the Sun Cheese ingredients until smooth and set aside (if using, otherwise, skip this step).

2. Lay the two tortillas out on a flat surface; spread 2 Tbsp Sun Cheese or hummus over each, leaving a half inch around the edge. Evenly lay half the carrots, half the cabbage and half the cucumber over each; top with half the spinach on each; roll tightly and slice into rounds and lay sideways on plates or in lunchbox containers. (If placing on plates, you may need to secure each piece with a toothpick.)

3. Mix the Ranch Dipping Sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Divide evenly into two small cups. Serve with pinwheels.
