Organising lunch for work can easily become boring. When you’re strapped for time it’s easy to resort to the trap of only making sandwiches, which become dull very quickly.
Put the fun back into your work lunch with these Rainbow Veggie Pinwheels! This is a healthy, light lunch idea which is easy to make and pop into your lunch box for the next day.
The vibrant meal contains a rainbow of veggies, chicken (you can omit the chicken for a vegetarian option) with ranch spread on a rolled tortilla. Yum!

Rainbow Veggie Pinwheels
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4 servings
4 large tortillas
⅔ cup whipped cream cheese (can use light)
1 tablespoon dry ranch powder (you can also use store bought)
½ cup thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
½ cup thinly sliced carrot strips
½ cup thinly sliced yellow bell pepper strips
½ cup baby spinach leaves
½ cup shredded purple cabbage
1 cup cooked shredded chicken (optional)
1. Mix together the cream cheese and ranch powder until thoroughly combined.
2. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the 4 tortillas.
3. Leaving a 1 inch border on all sides, lay out 2 tablespoons of each vegetable in rows across the tortillas; top with shredded chicken.
4. Roll up each tortilla tightly; if the ends don’t stay shut you can add a bit more cream cheese to seal. Cut crosswise into pinwheels and serve.
