Thai Peanut Wraps

Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!

Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!It’s never too late to try something new.  I’ve mentioned in recent posts how I took up curling just last year.  I didn’t grow up curling.  Heck, I didn’t grow up anywhere near ice.  But my wife and I stumbled across our local curling club, and now we’re both hooked on the sport.  We tried something new, and it worked out well.  Granted, I now have some random aching joints and bruises that I never had before.  Good thing the curling season is coming to a close.  I’ll just spend the summer nursing my injuries so I’m ready to go again in the Fall!

Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!Speaking of trying something new, did you guys hear about Ludivine, the bloodhound in Alabama?  Back in January, her owner let Ludivine out to take care of her business…and she ended up running a half-marathon.  The race course ran past the farm where Ludivine lived, and she apparently decided she was in the mood for a jog.

For the record, she wasn’t a terribly active dog.  She just saw people running and decided to join in.  And she kept going for 13.1 more miles.  Ludivine crossed the line in 7th place.  Not too shabby for a lazy bloodhound out for a morning jog.  Talk about trying something new!

Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!I’ve never been much into running, so you won’t find me running a half-marathon anytime soon.  Curling several nights a week and taking care of 4-month-old Robbie is quite enough for me right now.  But I did try my hand at some new flavors for these Thai Peanut Wraps.  My wife loves Thai chicken salad, so I used that as an inspiration for these wraps.  To keep these wraps easy to make for lunch, I left out the chicken.  (You could easily add the chicken in there to create a hearty dinner wrap, though.)

These Thai Peanut Wraps are loaded with tasty ingredients, but the icing on the cake (sorry for the bad food pun) is the quick peanut sauce.  Just drizzle this flavor-packed sauce on top of the wraps before rolling ’em up, and you’ve got one heck of an awesome lunch.  I sent Laura to work the other day with one of these wraps for lunch, and I’m thinking her coworkers might be a tad jealous about that one.  Sorry, Laura’s coworkers!

Make lunch fun again with these Thai Peanut Wraps!We always keep a stash of Flatout wraps on hand, and I opted for the Sea Salt and Crushed Black Pepper variety for these Thai Peanut Wraps.  With 12g of protein in the wraps alone, these wraps will keep you feeling full all afternoon.  There’s nothing worse than craving a snack and then seeing that it’s only 2:30pm.

Who says lunch has to be boring?  It doesn’t take long to whip up something fun and then roll it into a wrap.  Plus, wraps are just so much more fun to eat.  It might be the same exact ingredients as a regular sandwich, but lunch goes from average to epic once you roll it into a wrap!

So I challenge you to try something new soon.  It doesn’t have to be today.  But maybe by the end of next week?  Perhaps you go out to pick up the morning paper and wind up running a half-marathon.  Or perhaps you just mix up your usual lunch flavors.  Whatever it is, try something new…and then come back and tell me about it!

Ingredients

For the Thai Peanut Wraps

  • 4 cups cabbage shredded (see note)
  • cups carrots shredded (~5 large carrots)
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 cup edamame cooked and shelled
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • ½ cup green onions chopped
  • ½ cup honey-roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup wonton strips
  • 5 Flatout Sea Salt and Black Pepper wraps

For the Peanut Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

For the Peanut Sauce

  • Using a small mixing bowl, add rice vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, honey and garlic. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add the peanut butter, salt and red pepper flakes. Whisk until smooth.

For the Thai Peanut Wraps

  • Using a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the wraps; mix until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the wraps.
  • Drizzle Peanut Sauce on top and then roll up flatbreads; cut in half before serving.

Notes

I like to use a mix of red and green cabbage for these wraps. To make these wraps even easier, just grab a bag of cole slaw mix (i.e. no dressing) instead of cabbage.

      1. Hey Anne, this recipe will easily make 5 wraps and you’ll probably still have some of the cabbage mixture leftover. You might need to make more of the peanut sauce depending on how much you put on each wrap, though. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy this one! 🙂

  1. I love trying new things, thanks for the curling information I will definitely check it out. Life is about experiences, right?! And my mouth just experienced intense personal growth with this Thai peanut wrap, LOVE IT! Pinned!!

    1. Life is indeed all about the different experiences, Tonya. Who would have thought I’d try curling one day? And who would have thought that a lazy bloodhound would go run a half-marathon? 🙂 Thanks so much for pinning!

  2. There’s a place near where I work that makes salads, and you can get any of the salads as a wrap. I eat there all the time. This sandwich reminds me of that, although I’m not sure they have anything with a peanut sauce. I’ll have to clue them in. You’ll need to get royalties, of course.

    1. Well, obviously. Instead of you going there to get a sandwich for lunch today, you should take them this wrap instead. Kindof a reverse lunch order type of thing. I’d be curious to see how they react to that one!

  3. Oooh, I heard about Ludivine – hey, if he could run a half – duuude – I think you could too – just put Robbie in a jogging stroller – that’s what I used to do with Lil Shashi – but, TBH, I didn’t ever run a half pushing her though.
    Speaking of Lil Shashi, she has been on a wrap roll {saw what I did there 🙂 } this past week and I know for a fact she would be blown away by this – am sending her the link!

    1. Hahaha…have you ever seen me run, Shashi? Running half way down the block is a pretty big accomplishment for me. I’ll get on an elliptical for an hour or I can go curl for 2+ hours…but running? No thanks. Although if Ludivine was running alongside me, I might be able to go for an entire block. You should totally get lil Shashi to make these wraps! She’d roll over at the taste. Hah.

  4. Hi David! These wraps sound fantastic, even if they are healthy! I would leave out the edamame – I have tried and tried to like it, but it just doesn’t do anything for me.

    Hi David! These sound fantastic, even if they are healthy! I would leave out the edamame – I have tried and tried to like it but it just doesn’t do anything for me. You should get in enough of a workout between gardening and playing with Robbie!

    1. Yup, you could totally leave out the edamame if it’s not your thing. That’s why wraps are so much fun. Just play around with all sorts of fun toppings and then roll ’em up! And I totally agree about work out with Robbie…he’s still sick, and it’s really difficult. But we’ll get through it! Maybe I’ll get Ludivine to come up and help watch him. 🙂

  5. These wraps look like everything I’ve ever wanted in a lunch – colorful, tasty, healthy, tons of texture…YUM. And I did hear about the half marathon dog. She definitely puts me to shame!

    1. I totally agree, Mara! I’m big on texture in food, so I love all of the crunch in these wraps. Hah…and isn’t it sad when a lazy dog can go run a half marathon, but us humans have to train for months to do it? 🙂

    1. I’m all about texture in food, Medha…so the crunchy cabbage and honey roasted peanuts were a fun addition to these wraps. Thank you! 🙂

    1. These are totally healthy, Dawn! The only thing you have to watch out for is the peanut sauce, but it’s packed with flavor…so a little bit goes a long way. Thank you so much! 🙂

    1. Haha! I apologize for creating the hunger, Ami. 🙂 But these wraps are an excellent lunch…trust me! Laura has already requested that I make another big batch for her lunches next week. Thank you!!

    1. Thanks so much, Celeste! Yes, you could totally sub another type of nut in there…or just leave it all together. I do like the different texture from the nuts, but there is still plenty of crunch thanks to the veggies. Totally doable! I hope you have an awesome Easter weekend, too! 🙂

  6. Nice video, mate! Love the Thai flavors and burst of peanuts! First Indian themed, now these, I demand the next one Persian (not that these two weren’t…you know)

    Okay, so how do we go about finding our own Ludivine(s) who are horse sized to well….be our personal carts?

    1. Thanks, mate! Ok, Persian up next. Oh wait, Persians invented everything so technically these last two wraps have been Persian, right? 🙂 And I would love to just meet Ludivine. Anyone (or anydog) who can just up and run a half-marathon for fun is someone I need to meet!

    1. Thank you so much, Joleen! These wraps made for some excellent (and easy) lunches. I suspect another round will be in our future again soon. I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment! 🙂

    1. I love wraps, too, Smitha! They totally take a boring sandwich and make it awesome. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Have a great weekend!

  7. I just made these for dinner and they were awesome! I did half a bag of traditional coleslaw mix and half crunchy broccoli slaw, yummy!!! And that peanut sauce was amazing!!!

    1. Awesome! I’m so glad you enjoyed these wraps, Chris! And what a good twist with the broccoli slaw…we often use broccoli slaw in salads, but I’ve never thought about adding it to these wraps. Thanks for the idea. And thank you so much for coming back and leaving a comment…you have no idea how much I appreciate that! 🙂

    1. I couldn’t agree more, Theresa! I love a good wrap. In fact, I’ve been known to do wraps for lunch and then again for dinner. 🙂 Also, I’m right there with ya on peanut sauce. Yum! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

    1. Thank you so much for the kind comment, Genevia! These wraps are definitely a favorite in our house…and they’re pretty darned easy to make, too! 🙂

  8. Do you have a calorie count on these wraps? I’m sure I could figure it out but thought I’d see if the work has already been done 🙂

    1. Hey Alyssa! I calculated the calories a while back, and I came up with ~260 in the wraps (assuming you make 5) and ~100 calories in the sauce (assuming you use all of the sauce in 5 total wraps). I hope this helps!

  9. This is the 2nd time I’ve made your recipe and it it is delicious! We are attempting to eat less meat and not only is it delicious but it’s also incredibly filling. Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    1. Hey there, Marilyn! Thank you so much for the very kind comment. 🙂 These wraps really are delicious…they’re pretty easy to make a big batch, and they’re packed with flavor, too. In fact, my wife and I were just saying we need to make another batch of these soon! My apologies for the delay in responding (we were on vacation)…but thank you again!

  10. Hello,
    I made these for lunches this week. Made the wrap “insides” and the sauce, put them in separate containers in the fridge. My plan is to roll each wrap in the morning while I’m packing lunches, drizzling the sauce before rolling the wrap. Would this recipe keep in the fridge like this for about 3 days?

    1. Hey there, Michelle! Thank you so much for making these wraps…they really are an excellent lunch. 🙂 So to answer your first question, these wraps (sauce + “insides”) will absolutely last for 3 days in the fridge. I would guess they’d last up to a week, but they usually don’t make it that long in our house.

      As far as preparing the wraps for lunch, I definitely agree that you should keep the sauce separate as long as you can. Otherwise, it will just soak into the wrap and the “insides” leading to a soggy filling. In fact, if you have the ability to take small containers to work, I would just take the “insides” and the sauce separately and then make the wrap at work. That would definitely ensure that the texture stays perfect. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do around here. Thanks so much for the comment! 🙂

  11. Just made your Thai Peanut Wrap for lunch and it is “to die for”! I didn’t have any wonton strips but subbed some tortilla strips that I often use on salads. They gave that same delicious crunch! The next time I will definitely double the sauce as it is addictive and would be so good on pasta with stir-fried veggies and so many other concoctions!

    1. Hey Fay! So somehow I never got a notification on your comment, and I just now saw it…a good 5 months after you left it. My apologies! I’m really glad you liked this recipe. It’s one of our favorites, too! In fact, my wife and I were just saying that it’s about time to make another batch. That sauce really is good, and I agree about doubling it! Thanks so much for leaving a comment!

        1. Hah! Well better late than never, right? I’m so glad you enjoy this recipe, Fay…it means so much that you’re coming back to make it again! 🙂 I hope it tastes just like you remember!

        2. Why thank you very much for following along with me! I’ve got some really fun holiday recipes coming up. Don’t be a stranger if you have comments or questions! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Nadia! This is one of our favorite lunches, and my wife and I were just talking yesterday that it’s about time to make another batch. I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment! 🙂

  12. Hi! We just made these last night for dinner and they are FANTASTIC! Made the recipe as stated minus cilantro and onions. Because I’m picky lol! The peanut sauce is to die for. Quick question tho…should it be runny? Ours just tuned out like a spread. Which was fine for me but wondering what I may have done wrong, or if it should be this way. I did the filling and the hubby made the sauce so I’ll just blame him 😂 Great recipe it’s going into our rotation!

    1. Hey Kris! Thank you so much for swinging by and leaving this comment. You have no idea how much I appreciate it! These wraps really are quite tasty, and we made a batch ourselves not too long ago. And, yes, we always end up needing to make more of the peanut sauce, too. 🙂 Cheers, and thanks again!

    This was so,so good!! That sauce is freaking amazing. I add some crispy baked tofu and it was perfect! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

    1. Awesome! I’m so glad you liked this recipe, Amy. It’s one of our favorites…and I’m always surprised at how easy it is to make a huge batch. Good call on the crispy tofu here, too! I hope you have enough for leftovers for lunch this week. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much for leaving a comment – I’m glad you really enjoyed this recipe! We make this fairly often here. Good tip about doubling the sauce!

    I love this recipe! I make a big container of mix, make the sauce, and then it is so easy to throw together a wrap either at lunchtime if I’m at home, or in the morning before I head out to the office. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of tofu to make it a bit more filling. Always refreshing! I usually use some jalapeño wraps too to give it some nice spice. I see this recipe has stood the test of time!

    1. Hey Jen! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment – I do love this recipe, too. It’s on our regular rotation…especially when we’re needing to mix up the lunchtime routine. Now I need to go look for jalapeno wraps – those sound delicious!
