Below are two sets of ingredients. The sauce and the wrap itself. For exact measurements of these ingredients, see the printable recipe card below.
- Nutritional yeast
- Coconut milk

- White onion
- Vegan ground meat crumbles
- Taco seasoning
- Iceberg lettuce
- Tortilla chips or hard tortilla shells
- Large flour tortillas
Let's begin with the sauce. Combine potatoes, cashews, and a carrot in a small saucepan. Pour enough water to cover everything, then boil for 20 minutes.
Drain the cooked vegetables and nuts, then transfer them to a blender. Add the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt, and turmeric. Blend until smooth and velvety.
Heat olive oil in a skillet and sauté white onion for 5 minutes. Add vegan meat, taco seasoning, and salt. Cook for 10 minutes.
Time to assemble the Crunchwrap! Place a large tortilla on a cutting board. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of "meat", along with cheese and tortilla chips/taco shells.
Add onions, tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce. Drizzle with cheese sauce. Cover with a smaller tortilla and fold the edges.
Prepare a skillet with some oil and cook the Crunchwraps seam side down until they turn golden. Flip them over and brown the other side for a perfect finish
Serve with salsa, hot sauce, avocado, or any preferred "taco" toppings.
Below are a few ideas to substitute for individual ingredients in this recipe. While we love it as shown, not everything is always on hand. Check these out and make a note for the next time you make this.
- Use sweet potatoes or yams in place of regular potatoes.
- Soy milk or almond milk can be used in place of coconut milk
- Replace the meat crumbles with tofu, tempeh, seitan, mushrooms, black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, or refried beans
- Use a ready-made vegan cheese sauce such as Daiya or Primal Kitchen
If you're feeling adventurous, there are a few ways to switch up this vegan crunch wrap supreme recipe.
- Instead of using vegan meat crumbles use scrambled tofu or an egg replacer as the feeling.
- Add in roasted bell peppers, onions, tomato, or jalapenos.
- Mix hot sauce, salsa, or diced green chiles into the crumbles for added heat.
- Use BBQ jackfruit as a filling and top with vegan coleslaw and avocado for a delicious BBQ-inspired wrap.
- Add hummus as a spread on the tortilla and fill with roasted eggplant, bell peppers, and zucchini. Top with vegan feta cheese and a drizzle of tahini for a Mediterranean twist on the wrap.
- Use crispy tofu as a filling and top with shredded cabbage, carrots, and a spicy peanut sauce for an Asian-inspired wrap.
This is best assembled and heated just before serving. If you have the extra filling or need to prep in advance, I recommend keeping each ingredient separate until time to assemble.
The cheese sauce will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, you can microwave it or warm it up in a saucepan.
Should you have leftovers prepared crunchwraps, store them in plastic wrap or an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat by adding a bit of oil to a skillet, and heating over medium until hot, being careful not to burn.

When making a homemade vegan crunch wrap supreme, the key is to make sure you have the layers of ingredients thin enough to wrap together and not overflowing. An overstuffed wrap won't seal well and ends up a mess to eat.
A large flour tortilla will be the base. You will then use a smaller tortilla and/or a crunchy layer as well. I prefer using a large flour tortilla, then a small tortilla, with a layer of crushed chips.
While you could freeze individual ingredients, I do not recommend freezing already-made wraps. The tomatoes and lettuce are not freezer friendly. If you need to prepare ahead of time, make the cheese sauce, meat crumbles, and tortillas. Those can all be frozen for up to 3 months.
